Our learning in P4G this week:
Spelling: We all completed a dictation to see how well we have learned our spelling patterns and tricky words from last term. This week, we were working on the ay sound spelt ‘ei’ or ‘eigh’. Here is our list of words for this week.
In Handwriting we worked on capital letters. We have also worked on using connectives to join two or more sentences.
We worked in our new Book Detectives groups on our questioning skills. Can you ask someone at home a challenging ‘thick’ question about your reading book? It could start, ‘What do you think about…?’ Everyone will receive reading on a Monday for Wednesday and a Wednesday due for the following Monday.
We finished our booklets about times tables strategies. We updated our Maths targets in our learning stories. We looked for patterns in the 3, 6 and 9 times tables. Can you explain the patterns to your parents?
Here we are playing our maths games this week:
We have been learning the ukulele and learnt a Katy Perry song, ‘Roar’.
Our final mission arrived and we designed and made lifeboats for the Titanic using our knowledge of materials that float.
A lot of time this week has been taken up practising for our World of Work assembly. We hope lots of you can come and see it next Friday!
“We have all enjoyed designing and manufacturing the lifeboats, playing the ukulele and organising our assembly.” P4G
We’re all looking forward to performing our assembly next week and starting our Vikings topic.
