We have had a great start to the new half term and have already learnt so many new things. We cannot wait to get stuck into our new topics (and Christmas celebrations of course)!
In Maths, we have been exploring the different methods we could use when adding and subtracting 3-digit numbers. We then had a go at using these methods to solve some tricky problems. Maths homework this week is a recap of 1, 10 and 100 more/less than a given number. Please try to complete this independently but do ask for help if you get stuck!
We have enjoyed reading a very unusual traditional tale in English – The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. We were given the pictures from the story (with no words) to order. It was very tricky as the story seemed to differ greatly from the tale we were used to so we had to carefully infer from the clues that were there. We then read the story – we couldn’t believe that the wolf turned out to be friendly character with good intentions! We are looking forward to writing our own alternative traditional tales from a different point of view. We have also been looking at spellings that use the prefix ‘sub’. A spelling activity linking to this has also been set for homework.
We have begun our geography topic on Europe by recapping the world’s continents and oceans, using an atlas to remind ourselves of where each continent is located. We then looked at the different countries within Europe and had a competition to see how many we could name. We were so impressed that Fabio could also name the capital cities of each European country!
In Science, we have been discussing what light is and where it comes from. We shared our initial thoughts and discussed the questions we want to find out over the next 6 weeks. Here are our ideas…
Special mentions this week go to Patrick, Fabio, and Holly.
If you took part in the cross country this week, please return your running vest by Monday.
Have a lovely weekend!
