Week commencing 4th Nov 2019
This week we have started our unit of work on writing recounts. We explored lots of different types of recounts such as, Newspapers, Biographies and Diary entries. We discussed and identified different features of a recount and began to verbally recount our day at school in chronological order using the past tense.
This week Number bonds to ten have been our focus. Children having been using various methods and manipulatives. A favourite was using the tens frame. The children worked in pairs - one child placed x amount of counters in the tens frame and the other filled in the gaps. They then wrote the number sentences and repeated until they found all their number bonds to 10.
As it was fireworks night this week, we have been learning about the Gunpowder plot and why we celebrate using fireworks. We then used all the beautiful fireworks we had seen to create these amazing pictures.
