This week the teams have been exploring using speech to create conversations and using money in a range of contexts.
This week in maths we have been exploring money. We used column method subtraction to take the amount spent away from the total amount we have, we also had to add a range of different amounts to calculate how much was spent in total. We also practised using addition and subtraction of money to support our understanding of finding change. We were applying our addition and subtraction skills to word problems.
We have continued to read through Stone Age Boy, reading through to the end of the story. We used the events of the book to construct various dialogues and discussions between the characters including the first time Om meets the Boy and the Boy trying to convince his parents of what happened. We focused on using inverted commas accurately, a range of speech verbs and adding extra detail and actions outside of the speech.
Love to Learn
Our love to learn this week is linked to our upcoming science day.
We are setting a home learning competition to create a shoebox space scene. This can be anything you want it to be, but must be space themed. Small prizes will be given to the winners from each year group. Additional credits will be awarded for accuracy, creativity and imagination. Good luck!
Our spellings this week are:
Mr Potts' Group - kindness, happiness, illness, shyness, laziness, wellness, awkwardness
Mrs Cousins' Group - chorus, chaos, orchestra, ache, scheme, stomach
Mis Watling's Group - irrelevant, irregular, irresistible, irresponsible, unfair, disgrace, impractical, illogical, misspell
Thank you for all the time and effort you placed into your children's world book day costumes, they all looked fantastic!
