Weekly news for Team Cyan and Team Turquoise w/b 5th January
We hope you all had a lovely Christmas and the children had a well deserved break. They have all come back with such a positive attitude and have been working so hard. We are so proud of them!
In English this week we have started a new book, The Snail and the Whale by Julia Donaldson. We began by predicting what we thought was going to happen in the book in our first guided reading lesson. We then looked for expanded noun phrases in the book and started writing our own later in the week. Expanded noun phrases are phrases that tell you more about the noun. A noun phrase would add in an adjective to become an expanded noun phrase; "The small orange," is an example of an expanded noun phrase.
In maths, we began the week by placing numbers on a number line and estimating where numbers would go. We then moved on to rounding numbers. We used this rhyme to help us…
This week in the afternoons, we have been reading the book Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly. The book is a true story of four black women and the space race. We discussed courage and how we have shown courage and how the four women all showed courage. We made courage rockets, wrote letters to the four women and created self-portraits of the women.
