Reading and writing
We have been creating our own magical creature poems based on the poem ‘Dragons’ Wood’ by Brian Moses. The children used a range of mythical creatures in their poems, with suggestions that they may really exist!
The children have been using the book ‘The Tunnel’ by Anthony Browne to understand how grammar features can help to make a good opening and build up to a story. The children are looking at the use personification, alliteration and similes to improve their openings and build up.
This half term, we have been reading the book ‘The Wolf’s Footprint’ by Susan Price. The children have been developing their inference skills, linking experiences to a text, making predictions about the text, and focusing on fluency skills to improve their reading.
Children have continued to work on multiplication and division. They have been understanding how to multiply efficiently, divide 2-digits and 3-digits by 1-digit and understand what happens when we have remainders.
Please continue to work with your child on learning their times-tables.
The children will be starting their new topic of area and measurement, they will be measuring the area of different shapes using squares and comparing the different areas of shapes.
Children have been learning about the properties of solids, liquids and gas. They have looked at a range of objects to sort according to their state. To explore the properties of gas, the children completed an experiment with balloons, bicarbonate of soda and vinegar.
Children have been exploring data in spreadsheets and making tables.
Thanks everyone for you continued support.
