This week in English, we have been exploring instructional writing. We have ordered the main stages of instructions for mummification and added important details, including the use of appropriate conjunctions, verbs and adverbs. Next week, we will be using the key features to write instructions for our science experiment. We will be including a title, equipment list and an introduction, and focusing on using adverbs of time, conjunctions, verbs and adverbs.
In spelling lessons this week, we continued to look at words with prefixes and how words change when prefixes are added. We focussed on un- dis- mis- in- and auto-. Next week, we will be looking at how we break words down into syllables.
This week in Maths, we have been multiplying up to 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers, using the formal written method. We will be using dienes to support our learning. Next week in Maths, we will be learning to use long division with no regrouping before moving on to learning how to regroup the hundreds and then then the tens.
In history, we have been learning about the ancient Egyptians and how they used hieroglyphics to communicate. We started off with code-breaking and went on to create messages for our friends to solve. We also learnt about the Rosetta Stone and how it took 20 years to decode!
