4th February 2019

Another week has whizzed by, and we have been busy learning lots of new things. We continued to develop our eight times table recall in maths. We used base 10 to help us to visualise multiplication and division facts, while also memorising our times tables. By the end of the week we were ready to test our progression by taking a ‘Hot task test’. With all the hard work and effort we put in, we are sure we will have improved our scores.

In English we refreshed our memories of the previous punctuation and grammar, including: expanded noun phrases, speech, prepositions and fronted adverbials. We also planned our sequel to ’Winters child’ and began our ’Hot write’, our aim was to try to include all of the grammar terms we have been looking at.

This week in topic we used Atlases to help us to label which parts of the world the Vikings invaded. We had fun looking at the various countries flags, and grouping them into countries the Vikings invaded and where the Vikings came from.
