Come and have a look at all the exciting things we have been doing in class!
This half term (Autumn 1) in Maths we shall be exploring place-value and the four operations. In English we shall be writing a poem, diary entry and setting description linked to WW2. Our topic this half term is World War Two. In Science we will be learning about Electricity.
As part of our Science topic, we have been exploring electrical circuits. We made predictions as to which circuits would work and why they would or wouldn't work. We used our prior knowledge of key vocabulary, such as voltage and cell, to explain our reasoning.
In Reading, our focus is on vocabulary and word meaning. We have been working collaboratively, using our skim and scan techniques, to identify the meaning of words in context of the text. We have looked at root words and reading around the word. We are really enjoying reading about different aspects of WW2.
A huge thank you to all the parents and carers who attended the Spelling Inspire Workshop.
To immerse ourselves in our World War 2 topic, we had a special visitor in school who taught us all about life in the war. The children learnt all about the blitz, first aid on the battlefront and were able to investigate many artefacts. A great day was had by all!
In Maths, we have been ordering and comparing numbers to 10 million, including decimal numbers. We have also been looking at the four operations, particularly two-digit division. We used collaborative learning to support our peers.
