In Literacy, we read stories by the author Roald Dahl . We have used Talk for Writing to learn the story 'The Enormous Crocodile’, so we could write our own version. We identified our favourite words and phrases from the story and considered dialogue which was punctuated using inverted commas. We worked on complex sentences using a comma where the subordinating clause came first. We learned about subordination for reason and how to develop characters. We used appropriate and selective noun phrases.
Events in our stories were sequenced correctly.
In Maths, we learned how to solve problems with knowledge of measurement including length, weight and volume. We needed to know how to measure and read scales as well as converting between two measures eg 10 mm = 1 cm.
Children who are continuing to complete their maths homework and learning their multiplication tables were at an advantage during this half term's learning.
Please help your child to learn
x2 x5 x10 - year 2
and x3 x4 x8 - year 3
as well as the division facts.
6 x 3 = 18 3 x 6 = 18 18 divided by 6 = 3 18 divided by 3 = 6.
In Science, we learned about animals, including humans. We were able to consider the structure of animals, including humans, by learning about skeletons and muscles.
In RE we have been learning about the Sikh religion.
We used Purple Mash in Art to learn about 'digital artwork'. We produced a piece using 'pointillism' and also learned how to alter the size, thickness, colour of the digital tools.
In P.E., we will be learning different skills from the PE Curriculum. We will take part in Gymnastic, Athletics, Dance, and Games activities.

In Well-being, we will be exploring lots of different exercises and activities that will help develop physical and emotional well-being.
