In English this week, we have introduced the children to our next text, 'Way Home'. The children have been making predictions about what they think will happen next, using their oracy skills to help explain. We looked at the front cover to find clues. From this, we wrote a setting description of a dank, ominous-looking alleyway. The children have been excited to read more! Today, they used their artistic skills to create a city-skyline. Next week, the children will be learning and writing about homelessness. They will be writing in role at Shane, the main character in our class text and creating a fact file about homelessness.
To build on our existing understanding of place value, the children have been reading, writing and saying numbers up to ten million. They have also identified the value of digits within numbers. Most recently, the children have partitioned numbers into their respective values. The children explored a range of number-based manipulatives to support their understanding. Next week, we will be working closely to understand negative numbers in context, rounding and ordering.
