This week in English, we have been writing our own scripts based on the story of The Adventure of Dish and spoon. We have worked hard to ensure we have lots of stage directions to support the actors as well as a range of speech. We have then edited and improved our writing focusing on vocabulary of these stage directions. Next week in English we are beginning to explore 'Dr Xargle's Book of Earth Hounds' by Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross. We will be exploring all of our VIPERS in the first lessons and then building sentences ensuring we have told the reader who the sentence is about and what the person or thing is doing or feeling. We will also be building on these sentences to include where and when these things happen.
This week in Maths, we have been learning about column subtraction within 2 digit numbers using dienes to support our learning and have ended the week with word problems, discussing the vocabulary in the sentences that help us to understand which operation we need to use. Next week, we will be continuing to develop our understanding of subtraction. We will be using dienes to help us regroup both tens and ones in 3 digit numbers. We will then be using pictorial methods to support our understanding.
In PSHE we have been thinking about what is fair and what is unfair. We did a P4C lesson, where we discussed whether it is fair for everyone to be treated exactly the same. We came to the conclusion that it is not fair, because we all have different needs.
In History we have been learning about how prehistoric beliefs impacted upon Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age and how this has followed on to the present.
