Week commencing 13th Jan 2020

English

This week we have been imitating and writing the story of Augustus and his smile. As we have learnt the story using Talk for Writing actions, it has really helped us to know exactly what to write. As we are now such brilliant writers we have been using different adjectives and verbs to make the story even more interesting.

Maths

We have still been focusing on multiplication this week, moving onto looking at arrays and doubling numbers. Within our work on arrays we looked at the number of rows and columns and how we can use this to help us to work out the answer. Our doubling work allowed us to become more confident with doubling numbers and can now confidently double numbers up to 20. 

Topic

This week we have learnt about "REDUCE". The children learnt about different things they can stop doing or reduce doing in order to help save our planet from pollution and destruction. We learnt interesting facts such as leaving a TV on standby mode still uses electricity which is harmful for our environment & planet. We can reduce the use of electricity by switching the TV off at the main plug.
