In our lessons, we have been working on lots of exciting things.
In Maths, we have focussed our learning on number, place value, multiplication and division. We remembered lots about our multiplication and could recall many times table facts. We applied our skills to be able to complete multiplication questions involving multiplying larger number by 2-digit numbers and used long multiplication for this. We used the inverse of multiplication to help us when we were learning the skills for long division.
In English, we have been studying ‘The Witches’ by Roald Dahl. We have been looking at the language and vocabulary used by Roald Dahl in his writing and we used our reading skills to identify useful words and phrases and used summarising skills to make notes from the text. We used these within our writing and produced a guide for spotting a REAL witch, also in descriptive writing about The Grand High Witch. We applied our journalistic skills to create newspaper reports about the five missing children in the story.
Science has been really interesting for us. We have been ‘Classifying Critters’ and we collected many creatures from outside (e.g. worms, ants, spiders etc.) and used scientific classification diagrams to help us tell the difference between the creatures we had found. We then sketched what we had found before releasing the creatures back into their natural habitats. We have looked at different ways that living things can be grouped, including microorganisms, which involved planning and carrying out a rather gruesome mouldy bread investigation!
