Week commencing 20th Jan 2020
Maths: This was our final week in our Multiplication and Division unit. After using a number line to divide, we moved on to using the chunking method of written division. Although we found this a little tricky, everyone worked really hard and persevered! Using the example below as a guide, can you practise this method at home?
English: This week saw the start of a new unit in English: we will be writing warning stories and looking at how to create suspense in our writing. Look at our “suspense writing toolkit” below. Pick a book from home - can you find any examples of where an author has used these tools?
Topic: This week, we learnt all about the gruesome Anglo Saxon tale of Beowulf. After reading the story and discussing the characters, we wrote character descriptions about Beowulf and Grendel.
