Love to Learn

This week we would like the children to research survival strategies for surviving in a cold environment such as Antarctica. The children will be writing a survival guide in English next week so any extra research will help them greatly.


This Week:

In maths this week, the children worked on comparing, and simplifying fractions and then moved on to adding and subtracting fractions.

In English, the children worked on rewriting part of the story using their own structure. They focused on using ambitious verbs. Later in the week, the children wrote a character description about the evil Starjik using expanded noun phrases.

In Topic, the study of the River Nile was continued where children created their own 3D map. They then moved on to look at hieroglyphics.

Term 2, Week 3:

In maths, the children will continue to develop their understanding of adding and subtracting fractions. They will then move on to explore the features of different types of triangles and then ordering angles.  

In English, the children will be writing a survival guide on surviving in a cold, harsh environment. They will employing imperative verbs and writing a series of instructions that are clear and concise.

In PSHE next week the theme is Anti-bullying week. On Tuesday, there will be an Odd Socks Day where the children will celebrate their differences. On Wednesday, they will look at how we can avoid falling out. On Thursday, the children will focus more on empathy and comparing it with sympathy.
