We have had a lovely first week back, we have settled back in with positive attitudes, ready to learn!
Our new unit in English is focusing on the text ‘Charlottes Web’ by E.B.White. We have focused on the extract where Wilbur escapes, we have put our own actions to the story (see pictures below). We have also been asking questions and making predictions about the story.
In our reading comprehension we are working on using the text to answer questions, and finding quotes to support our answers.
In maths we have continued to learn about multiplication and division, we have moved on from fluency, and are now concentrating on problem solving and reasoning. We have looked at a range of word problems and worked in pairs to solve them.
Our new topic is ‘I am Warrior!’
We will be focusing on the Vikings in Britain for the Spring term.
We have begun by looking at where they came from, and where they invaded. We have been working with a timeline to understand when the events occurred, and are now looking at why they invaded Britain.
Our superstars this week are Mitchell, for his improved concentration in class, and Riley for his improved reading comprehension skills.
