Maths-

We had a visit from Ms Walker who work in Boroughmuir High School and she began to teach us algebra, starting with number machines. We had to use our knowledge of the four operations to find our end product.

In the latter part of the week we created time board games, which we hope to share with our younger years.

Literacy- 

To practice our spelling this week, we have been making our own Active Spelling Cards, which worked on our imagination skills. As well as allowing us to spell in a fun way.

We have been working on our picture books, by writing our own Newspaper articles and diary entries.

Other Curriculum Areas-

We have been practicing our capital cities in Europe in preparation for the Euro Quiz 2020.

In Drama, we have been working on our improvising skills, by using a stimulus to create a piece of drama.

We have also had a German visitor who taught us numbers and greetings which we used for a game of bingo.

Numeracy:

We have been learning time this week, where we revised using 12-hour and 24-hour time. Then we moved on to finding time intervals, where we used our conversion skills of 12 and 24 hour time where worked with number lines to show how we count on.

In the latter part of the week, we have used Sumdog to help improve our mental maths.

Literacy:

In literacy, this week we have started planning our monster stories, which we are going to give to our buddies. In order to do this, we have been looking at a variety of different picture books, to help inspire ideas for our own picture books.

For spelling we have been working on our common words, which will help to improve our writing.

We have also had our regular literacy circle meeting where we have been able to discuss the task we have worked on at home and plan the next task we will do. Additionally, to help improve our listening skills, we also carried out a listening comprehension. This involved us working on our listening as well as multitasking skills.

Home Learning Options:

-Play Sumdog

-Practice spelling our common words

-Read a selection of other picture books to get more ideas for our own monster stories.

-Continue practicing our timetables.
