LITERACY

This week in Literacy we have been learning about punctuation, character descriptions, presenting and summaries.

Punctuation

We have been revising where to put basic punctuation in our sentences and where to put commas like in lists.  Also we have been thinking of what words would have a capital at the beginning.

Character Description

This week we have also been learning about character description and about taking quotes out of a book to show evidence. We have also been thinking of a character in our books and describing them.

Summary

The other piece of Literacy we have been doing this week is a simple summary. A summary is a small paragraph that describes a story or something that has happened .We have been doing a summary on our class novel Friend or Foe by Michael Mopurgo.

Presenting

We also have been presenting our charity work. This week we have been researching facts about charities and we all presented our work to the school.

MATHS

IN MATHS WE HAVE BEEN LEARNING HOW TO DIVIDE BY 10/100/1000 AND MULTIPLY BY 10/100/1000.

E.G. 46 X 1OOO

THERE ARE THREE ZEROS IN 1000 SO EVERY NUMBER MOVES TO THE LEFT THREE TIMES. YOU MUST USE THREE ZEROS TO HOLD THE PLACE IN THE HUNDREDS, TENS AND UNITS COLUMNS. THE ANSWER IS 46 000.

NOW YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW TO DIVIDE BY 10, 100, 1000.

E.G. 320O DIVIDED BY 100, SO THERE ARE TWO ZEROS IN 100 SO EVERY NUMBER MOVES TO THE RIGHT TWO ZEROS AND END UP WITH 32 AS YOUR ANWSER .

IN MATHS WE HAVE ALSO BEEN PRACTISING OUR BEAT THAT’S. WE ARE TRYING TO GET MORE QUESTIONS DONE IN A CERTAIN TIME.
