Week Beginning 13th January 2020
Happy New year everyone! We had a busy first two weeks back at school. We have begun our new IPC topic called 'From A to B.' The children have loved learning about their new topic and as our entry point we had a fantastic time discussing different types of transport. We then made our own rockets out of junk modelling, before we went onto the playground to mix Coca Cola and mentos sweets to create our own exploding rocket! The children loved doing this!
In the afternoons we have then loved our Geography lessons, going for a walk around Bromley Cross before coming back to class to look on a map at where we have been. We drew symbols on our maps for all the different places that we saw. After this we have looked at Bromley Cross on a map before creating our own maps with a key for the symbols!
In Maths we have been learning all about money. We have learned about all the different coins and their worth. We then looked at a £5, £10 and £20 note and learned how many pound coins they were equal to. We have looked at different amounts and made them using the different coins. It was interesting to learn about how we can make the same amount lots of different ways with lots of different coins! This week we have also been learning about giving change. We have found the difference between two amounts and solved lots of problems. At home can you look at the different coins and notes you can find? Can you practice making different amounts?
In English we have been incredibly busy becoming authors! We made our own story plans to re-write the story of 'The Three Little Pigs.' Instead the children chose different animals to feature in their stories. We then had a go at re-writing the story with our new animals using speech marks, expanded noun phrases and a range of punctuation! In your reading books at home, can you find any speech marks? Can you use expression in your voice to change how the characters speak?
Finally, our spellings this week are:
Have a happy weekend!
