What a fun-filled week LKS2 have had!
In English, we have continued our learning about Ancient Egyptians in preparation for us writing a non-chronological report next week. One of our activities was all about paragraphs. We were given a text which had no paragraphs and the sub-headings removed. We had to break the text up into sections, where we thought a new paragraph should start. This was when the author changed topic and started to speak about a different thing – including tombs and hieroglyphics.
In maths this week, Year 4 (Miss Boyd and Miss Bennett’s maths group) have continued their learning about short multiplication. Activities have included find the missing digit, purple mash and a ‘crack the code’ activity where the children had to find the location of holiday destinations using their short multiplication skills. This morning, a group in Miss Bennett’s class worked together to make a poster with instructions on how to successfully answer a short multiplication question. Year 4 have been fantastic this week, well done!
This week, the Y3s have been learning how to add and subtract amounts of money. Today, some children practised finding change from a £5 note, in our classroom café! They chose which item to buy, then took it to the shopkeeper. Together, they had to subtract the price of the item from £5 to calculate the correct change.
