Weekly News 2.2.24
In English this week, we have completed our book ‘The Pebble in my Pocket’ and finished learning about the journey the pebble took through time from 485 million years ago to present day. We are excited to go and find our own pebbles, that may have been on a similar journey, on Thursday 8th February on our walk to the coast. We also finished our writing unit on setting descriptions and the children planned their own earthquake setting and then wrote their own description of this using all of the skills we had learnt in the unit – their writing was incredible!
Next week, we will be exploring poetry based on ‘Pebble in my Pocket’ themes.
This week we have been learning about decimal numbers. The children have come across some new vocabulary:
A whole number/integer – is a number that does not have a decimal or fractional part e.g. 34, 6, 937 or 42
Decimal places – the children learnt that a decimal number with two digits after the decimal point is described as having 2 decimal places such as 4.65, 128.93 and a number with 1 decimal place would be for e.g. 7.4, 4.9
