Friday 8th May |
This week in numeracy, we have been recapping division and multiplication. The children have been answering questions using number lines with the knowledge that multiplication is repeated addition and division is repeated subtraction.
The children have been practising the strategies they have been taught and have been applying them to worded problems.
In literacy, we have continued the work on report writing. The children have been researching Zoo animals and have planned and written a report. I have been very impressed with the children’s writing. They are explaining the information, organising sections of writing into paragraphs and really thinking about the audience they are writing too.
In science, we have been classifying animals. The five groups we have been learning about are mammals, reptiles, fish, amphibians and birds. The children had to classify Nocturnal animals and some children were able to explain why they belonged to each group.
Next week, the children are going to be learning lots of facts about Nocturnal animals. There are some useful websites below.
Enjoy the weekend!
