In Maths we are continuing to learn about measurement and are focusing upon units of length. We are practising converting lengths using different units, for example centimetres into metres and vice versa. We have to use our knowledge of how to multiply or divide by 100.
In English we have been looking at the images in the story, ‘The Zoo’, and using inference skills to answer questions about them. We noticed that the gorilla had the same sort of eyes as the mum, as they both felt sad at that point in the story. We studied the picture of the orang-utan in its cage and thought about how it must of felt, then we wrote as we were the orang-utan. The written work produced was so good we have filmed a selection of children reading their work out loud.
