We have been reading our class book ‘The Spiderwick Chronicles’ and thinking about the characters’ emotions. In writing, we have been practising using different kinds of openers in our sentences, for example, starting our sentences with a place, a time, an emotion, a sound effect, or an action.
Home learning activity: When you are reading at home, talk about what you think the character might be thinking and feeling. How do you know? Is there ever a time that you have felt the same way?
Maths and numeracy:
We have been learning about place value in five-digit numbers. We learned to order five-digit numbers and break them down into tens of thousands, thousands, hundreds, tens and units. We have started looking at the four operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We have also been talking the language of 2D and 3D shapes.
Home learning activity: Look around your house. How many different shapes can you see? Can you find any objects made up of more than shape?
Other areas of the curriculum:
In P.E. we have been practising our football and kicking skills, like dribbling, passing and shooting. We have also been doing activities to practise our teamwork skills.
