Weekly Blog - 1.10.21
We are at the end of another amazing week of learning! Let's find out what we have been learning!
This week we have been learning different ways of multiplying. We began by learning to multiply by 10 and 100. We then learnt to multiply 2 and 3 digit numbers. We moved from using place value counters onto the formal written method! We have fantastic understanding of place value which really helps us understand why we regroup.
We became poets this week and used beautiful figurative language. We learnt how to construct similes and metaphors and used personification to bring inanimate objects to life! We began our new story, The Iron Man. We loved finding him all broken up in our classroom! We also love the description of his parts trying to find each other! Next week we will be learning to write suspenseful pieces. We will make our readers feel scared reading our amazing writing!
This week we continued to learn about food chains and webs. We then learnt about our impact on the planet in Geography. We found out that the most dangerous animal on the planet is..... US! We were fantastic at learning about the threats to penguins and we were able to share our views on how we have a positive and negative impact on our planet. Next week we will be learning all about TEETH!
We learnt that Penguins are being threatened by changes to the environment but are there any other animals that need protecting? Choose an endangered animal and find out what we can do to protect them. You can make a poster, a video or even a presentation! Be creative!
