Our work- Autumn Term:
In Maths we have been working hard to understand place value, explaining how many tens and ones a number has and applying our knowledge to reasoning problems. We have been learning how to use the column method to add and subtract too. Other units we will be learning in the Autumn are money, multiplication, and division. Children enjoy working through challenges in Maths. We have also been practicing counting in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s so we are ready to learn our times tables.
In English, we have listened to stories from famous authors, such as Roald Dahl and we read the story The Twits as a class. We made Squiggly Spaghetti, but no one dared to eat it!
We have also written firework poems with great adjectives to describe and we have written a report about the life of Florence Nightingale, using sub-headings and lots of interesting facts. Children were interested to learn facts about her and to understand why she was famous and have a dressing up day of a famous person!
In Science, children have been keen to find out about living things and their habitats. We were able to go on a mini beast hunt on the school grounds, so that children could explain what they found and note it on their own map they had drawn of the school. Children have been keen to learn about famous inventors and scientists such as Charles Macintosh and Louis Pasteur.
