Maths and Numeracy
We have been revising our Maths topics so far…addition and subtraction, tessellation and shape. We had to use the most efficient strategy when adding and subtracting, we had to tessellate three shapes and name 3D objects. We enjoyed making a Christmas jumper out of three shapes but did find this tricky. We also continued to study symmetry. We were able to complete symmetrical pictures and know they must be the same on both sides.
Next week we would like to continue with symmetry and maybe even do some Christmas Puzzles.
This week our spelling pattern was “ea”. We know this makes the E sound. Examples of “ea” words are eat, cheat and screaming.
In Writing, we wrote our own newspaper articles. We thought of our own story and had to include certain features of newspaper articles – headline, caption and we even started using phrases like “it was reported that”. We would like to continue to develop this next week.
Other areas of the curriculum
- gods. We wrote our own names which was fun. We also made “Top Trump” cards for the gods.
- In P.E. we learnt how to play in a team. We know we have to follow the rules.
