In Maths this week, we have been continuing to learn about place value. We have been ordering numbers and positioning them on blank or landmarked number lines, noticing that thinking about multiples of 10 can help us do this. Later in the week we have been using inequalities to help us order and compare numbers and have been writing numbers in words.

We enjoyed solving some tricky problems too such as these:

In English we have been learning about adjectives. Thomas spotted that adjectives “are describing words”. We then used interesting adjectives to help us describe the appearance and personality of The Enormous Crocodile. Some of these included foolish, idiotic, sly and mean. We have also been learning about homophones – words that sound the same, but have a different spelling and meaning. Some of these included: blue/ blew; to / too; night / knight; whole /hole and bare / bear. We have been learning to retell our version of, The Enormous Crocodile, complete with actions and lots of expression! Watch this space!

This week’s Explorer of the Week is Robbie, who always tries his best and shows excellent behaviour for learning at all times. Keep up the great work Robbie!

We earned 6 handshakes this week!
