This Week's Learning
Term 1 Week 7
In English this week, we are going to focus on writing pieces of first-person, descriptive writing. We will be putting ourselves into the position of a boy called Toby, who we have read about in the book Toby and The Great Fire of London. We have already gathered ideas as to what Toby might see, smell, hear and feel on the first night of the fire. We have also already collected adjectives to describe these ideas. Now we are going to use Thesauruses to expand our range of descriptive vocabulary. We are also going to use a range of different prepositional and verb phrases in order to create descriptive sentences. Finally, we are going to consider how we might use interesting ways of showing and telling our audience how the character is feeling.
In Maths, we are focusing on expanding our addition and subtraction skills. We will practise our counting skills and then use them to help us count over 10s barriers to solve tricky calculations. We will also explore how we can use our knowledge of number bonds to solve these calculations with greater efficiency.
In Science and Computing we are exploring the role that IT plays in school and the wider world. We are going to use our computing skills to create a representation of a 17th Century house which demonstrates our historical understanding.
We will also complete P.E., R.E. and Design and the Arts lessons this week.
