In English, we started a new text all about the Moon! We have gathered lots of facts about this fascinating planet and discovered that the Moon makes tides in the Earth’s seas and reflects because of the light from the sun. Next week we will be developing our understanding of noun phrases and expanded noun phrases before moving onto using comparative adjectives -er and -est.
In Maths, we have been super busy learning all about fractions of shapes. We can find a half, quarter and a third of shapes even when they have been split into many more pieces. We are now beginning to count in halves and next week we will be moving onto counting in quarters.
In Science we have been developing our knowledge of materials by sorting them into groups. We then used adjectives to describe them and learnt that transparent meant see-through and that flexible means bendy. Next week we will be discussing why materials are made from certain objects.
In Geography, we labelled the 7 continents and discussed their sizes. We used this information to put them into order starting with the largest.
In History, we have started to learn all about Christopher Columbus. We used our inference and deduction skills to gather facts from a text. Next we will be using a timeline to order the key events in his life.
This term we will be making our own lunchbox. This week we looked a wicker basket and discussed why this would be an effective lunchbox and how it could be improved.
Well done to Aicha who was our Learning Hero. Well done for using great resilience when completing fractions this week!
Our Championship Point winners were Sophie, Jasmine, Brody and Christabel.
