Maths

In maths, we have been learning how to round numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. We have also learnt how to multiply a 2 digit number by 1 digit. We can also add and subtract 4 and 5 digit numbers!

We love practicing our times tables and complete daily challenges. We have a weekly competition called ‘Time tables Olympics’ where we complete different questions within a time limit. We have all worked extremely hard and are on the times tables Olympians chart!

We have also been practicing our 6,7, 8 and 9 times tables.

Watch us practicing our 6 times tables!

Rounding to 10

English

Writing

We have developed and learnt new skills to strengthen our writing. We have been looking at lots of different short stories and discussed language techniques which make them really interesting. From this, we have then learnt how to use direct speech, paragraphs and explore our vocabulary through synonyms and antonyms. Developing these skills has made our writing more exciting.

We have also been developing our drama skills in our English lessons and have learnt new strategies that help to strengthen our understanding of a text or character.

Here we are using the ‘hot seating’ technique.

We have to be in role as the characters in our story. Other children then ask us questions and we have to answer as if we were the character from the text.

Take a look at our work.

Science

We have been identifying bones, muscles and joints in the human body and discussing their importance. We have then used this knowledge to help us identify the bones of an animal skeleton. Please ask us some questions at home as we would love to share our knowledge!

We have also been exploring plants and the pollination process.

Take a look at our work!

Tribal Tales

We’ve been on a journey from the ‘Stone age’ through to the ‘Iron age’
