This week in maths we have been sorting out measurements in metres and kilometres. We are brilliant at converting from kilometres to metres. We have used bar models to solve word problems and looked for connections between our kilometres and number bonds work.
Our persuasive writing has continued to develop through our Talk 4 Writing work – we have learned a persuasive leaflet about Yorkshire Wildlife Park, some of which is attached to this blog. We designed our own actions and had to create our own story map for different paragraphs. We are hoping that this will really help us to write our own persuasive leaflets for Beaumanor.
This week was anti-bullying week with the message “All different, all equal”. For this we watched the film Daisy Chain and thought about what strategies Buttercup Brie (the main character) used to stand up to the bullies. We then created our own daisy images to show the things we can do to stand up to bullies – some of our suggestions included being kind to them, sorting things out with the help of an adult and speaking out if you have a problem.
Our Star of the Week this week is Gracie for the consistent effort and hard work that she puts in to all aspects of her work. She has enthusiastically joined in with the Walk on the Wildside persuasive leaflet and persisted in maths to really improve her skills. Fantastic efforts – keep it up!
We received a disappointing 3 handshakes this week.
