We’ve had a great first week back in school and we have been busy learning lots of new skills. In Maths we have been learning all about place value. We have started to develop our knowledge of numbers up to 1000 and used base 10 equipment to help us gain a visual representation of the numbers. We have also gained confidence in reading, and writing numbers in words and digits. Cameron was eager to show off his skills below.
In English we have been learning the story ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’, our aim is to re-write the story using the same theme, but adapting the characters and events. We will be learning lots of writing techniques over the coming weeks to help us write to entertain.
Our topic in science is forces and magnets. In P.E we had the opportunity to use our knowledge of forces to create different dance routines involving pushing and pulling. We also used the theme of ‘strong’ forces, which meant we had to create a strong pose.
