Week commencing 6th Jan 2020
It was fantastic to see all the children on Monday and hear about their holidays. We have had a busy week culminating in a writing workshop with Michael Rosen which focussed on poetry writing.
Maths - our focus at the start of this term is multiplication and division. This week we have been practising multiplication, starting with multiplying increasingly large numbers by a single digit. We have revised known methods, such as the grid method and short multiplication.
English - we are focussing on diary writing, this week learning about how we can vary sentence structures to sustain our reader's interest. In grammar, we have been learning about all the different ways that we use apostrophes to join two words together and how this can give our writing a more informal tone.
Art - we have been experimenting with oil pastels and the various techniques we can use to create different effects with them. We will be using what we have learnt to create images of space.
