In Maths, we have been on a journey through Place Value, learning about various different aspects of it, including partitioning numbers, rounding and counting in 10s, 100s and 1000s. To consolidate our learning, we have been diving deeper into our thinking and solving challenging problems. To help us with our Times Tables we have started using Times Tables Rock Stars, both at home and at school. We are all looking to gain Rock Star status by achieving a recall speed of under 1 second per question! Who will make it there first?
In English, we have linked our writing to our topic, Scrumdiddlyumptious. We have already completed three pieces of writing, including a non-chronological report and a set of instructions. We are now writing a diary entry about Willy Wonka's famous Golden Ticket!
As part of the wider curriculum, we are learning how to play basketball in P.E and in Science we have been looking at the various different food groups and how to stay healthy. In Computing, we have looked at various ways to stay safe online and made posters to remind the school community how important it is to do so. We would encourage our parents to talk to us about this and perhaps we can give them a few ideas of how they too can stay safe online.
