Weekly News!

Term 1 Week 6


This week in Maths we have continued looking at subtraction! We used our knowledge of subtracting multiples of ten to a two digit number, to help us subtract two, two digit numbers! (59 - 28 =)  We again challenged ourselves by showing our workings out on an empty number line. Please continue to play Time Tables Rock Stars!


This week in ‘People of the past’ we have learnt all about Florence Nightingale. We sequenced the events in her life and compared hospitals before and after. We wrote some impressive letters, in the role of Florence Nightingale, to our parents. We described what the hospital in Turkey was like, what we saw, how injured the soldiers were and what it smelt like! Some of us found it hard to imagine that some hospitals never use to have beds! We then discussed the story of Nelson Mandela as a class. We looked at different scenarios and discussed what we thought was fair or unfair.


This week in English we have started looking at different types of sentences! We have learnt how to write questions and how to write exclamation sentences! We have continued working on verbs and adverbs and we are really starting to apply these to our writing.
