Here is what we have been learning in P4H this week.

Maths and Numeracy

We have been learning about regular and irregular shapes. An irregular shape is different from a regular shape because the edges can be different lengths.

We have been looking at equals and does not equals signs.

e.g. 11+11=10+12

74-52 does not equal 5+7

We made an array street. We made lots of houses that have windows arranged in times table arrays and made this into a street. This will help us with our 3 and 4 times tables AND division.

Literacy

We have been reading Kaspar Prince of Cats by Michael Morpurgo. We are enjoying it so far but there was a sad end to chapter two.

The Pikachu reading group have been using their non-fiction reading book to choose an artist and draw themselves in the style of that artist.

Lycanroc have been making quizes about a ‘Weird Little Monster’ from their reading book.

We have written a recount about us building our Titanic. (Mrs Haynes thinks they are BRILLIANT recounts with great time connectives.)
