P3M This week’s learning 22.06.18

Literacy

This week we created some acrostic poems. These were about summer and we had to use adjectives to describe summer. We made some fantastic descriptions – Miss martin even thought she was in a tropical island!

We continued to read The Magic Finger – we love it! We then answered questions to show our understanding. We had to answer in detail, using key words from the question as well as use the book for evidence.

In Spelling, we looked at making words plural by adding an s. This includes football – footballs, ice cream – ice creams and egg and eggs.

Maths and Numeracy

This week we continued with fractions and time. With fractions we tried to use our knowledge to solve word problems. This was quite tricky! We will continue this next week. In Time we were learning to convert between 12 and 24 hour clocks. We discovered a rule for this – we know we have to add the hour on to 12 to get the 24 hour time. E.g. 5 o’clock = 12 + 5 = 17:00.

We love doing our Beat Thats! Lots of us are getting better scores each day!

Health and Wellbeing

We were developing our skills throughout different sports to improve – this included basketball, football, using hula hoops, badminton and tennis. We found badminton tricky because it was pretty windy!

We loved going swimming! We were little fish! Thanks to those who helped!

 

Other curriculum areas

We looked at maps of Buckstone to describe the different features throughout time. We noticed more and more houses as the years went on as we put the maps into order.

In ICT we are learning to programme objects and enjoyed playing A.L.E.X.
