What we are doing this week in Lilac Class for the week beginning 10.7.23

For Maths this week in Lilac Class, we are adding and subtracting decimals with the same decimal places using our knowledge of the written column method.  We will then be moving onto adding and subtracting decimals with different decimal places using the ‘0’ place holder to make aligning up the decimals clearer.  Lilac Class are also using place value charts to show the exchanging pictorially. 

In English this week in Lilac Class, we are planning a biography about Ernest Shackleton.  We will be finding out what biographical writing is and finding out about the different phases of Shackleton’s life.  Lilac Class will also be including at the end of the biography the discovery of the wreck of the Endurance on the 5th of March 2022 and what important artefacts were retrieved from the wreck. 

In our guided reading sessions Lilac Class will be reading books from our Reading Curriculum, for example, ‘The Window’ by Jeannie Baker and ‘Flotsam’ by David Wiesner as well as ‘Everest’ about Edmund Hilary by Alexandra Stewart and Joe Todd-Stanton. For RE in Lilac Class, we are learning about Hajj and why pilgrimage is regarded as an important duty by Muslims? How does pilgrimage help many believers deepen their faith?  For Time and Place in Lilac Class, we are finding out about different natural resources in India. We will be thinking about what natural resources are and why India was colonised by the British in 1858. For Science in Lilac Class, we are continuing our learning about the work of the famous naturalists Jane Goodhall and Sir David Attenborough and the contributions they have made to knowledge.  For Design and the Arts, we are singing ‘I Can See Clearly Now’ with an instrumental accompaniment.
