A fantastic return to the term for all.
This week we have started a new class text, Charlotte's Web. We have a letter written to keep Wilbur the Piglet alive. The children have been able to uses a range of different persuasive and emotive language to put their opinions and perspectives across. The teams also worked hard on using a range of conjunctions to add further detail and reasons to their opinions. Later in the week we wrote letters to a friend recounting what Wilbur had done in the story. The children were able to accurately use past tense and a range of different descriptive tools to make their writing more exciting.
We have circled back round to place value and understanding number this week. The teams explored how we can represent numbers using a range of different strategies and resources such as dienes blocks, partitioning, place value counters and number lines. We then moved onto rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. The children were able to recognise that the numbers 1,2,3 and 4 always round down to the previous number whilst 5,6,7,8 and 9 always round up to the next number. We also explored number lines and estimating and predicting where numbers should and could be placed on them.
Love to Learn
My Home Town
Where we grow up plays a huge part in our lives – shaping who we are, what we do, who we know and where we go!
For your home learning project for ‘Good to be Me’, over the course of Term 5, we would like you to create something that tells us all about what ‘My Home Town’ means to you. This home learning can take any form – there is no right or wrong way but you can be as creative as you like!
