Maths- This week we finished our block of learning about multiplication and division. At the end of the week we completed a ‘hot task’ to show Mrs Beardsall and Mrs Robinson everything we have learnt about multiplication and division over the past few weeks. On Wednesday, we started our work on fractions. We started learning about halves. We folded pieces of paper in lots of different ways to make two equal groups - it was lots of fun! On Thursday, we revised ‘place value’ with Mrs Robinson. We had a practical lesson making 2 digit numbers using equipment such as coins, straws, numicon, place value cards and counters. On Friday, we drew pictures to help us add two or three numbers together.
English- In English, we used our text maps which we drew last week with Mrs Robinson to write our non fiction report about the ‘Retford Ridgeback Dragon. We used our maps to help us remember the heading names and important spellings we might need.
We really enjoyed our music this week with Mrs Horner by making music to accompany the theme tune to ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ .
