This Week's Learning
Term 1 Week 4
This week we are going to look at a new section of the book Journey. We are going to explore the part of the story where the girl enters the castle. If you would like to watch a version of the story, please follow this link.
We are going to write a description of what the girl can see as she approaches the castle. We will use prepositional phrases to open our sentences and use carefully selected adjectives to create expanded noun phrases to describe what she can see. We will also use the ‘show not tell’ technique to show how the girl is feeling at this moment in the story.
In Maths, we are going to explore how 2-digit numbers can be partitioned in a variety of ways. We will use base-ten manipulatives, place value charts, whole-part models and bar models to support our understanding. We are also going to use addition calculations to record our findings. If you would like to learn more about using a whole-part model to partition 2-digit numbers, you can watch a learning video by following this link.
In PE we are going to continue to explore different ways of moving in gymnastics lessons and practising passing and moving skills in football. In RE, we will continue to explore creation and incarnation. In ICT we will begin a programming unit and explore the basic principles of coding. If you would like to practise your coding skills at home please log on to purple mash, click on the computing section and explore the 2Code App.
