Our Busy week 15.11.19
This week's vocabulary: cramped, compressed, radiant, reflect
We have continued our work on Moon Man in Literacy and written some good diary extracts, imagining ourselves as Moon Man escaping from the Moon! This was aided by some drama work- Holly-Ann became Moon Man for the session and answered questions from the children. (see photos. In Maths, we have continued work on calculations- we have looked at multiplying whole numbers by 10 and dividing multiples of 10 by 10. We also learnt the "finger trick" to solve 9 times table questions. Ask your child to show you it!
In Science, we had good fun using torches to choose a material that would be the most reflective. We imagined we were going to design new book bags. A huge thank you to all the parents and carers at home who donated money for Children in Need and something for the Selby Food Bank.
Our Busy Week 8.11.19
This week's vocabulary: dormant, extinct, active, volcano, shingly, cloudy,estimate, inverse, light source
Welcome back everyone! What a busy first week ! Not only has it been Assessment week, but we've also found time in Literacy to begin work on a text by Tomi Ungerer "Moon Man". We've only read one page , which only had one sentence on it, so far but we've done lots of work around who this character could be, what it's like on the moon and even performed some poems about the moon. Please look at the photos and read the children's poems. (see below).
In Maths, we worked on checking our answers to calculations by estimating the answer first and also by doing the inverse (opposite) operation. So for example if 35+17 = 52 , 52- 17= 35 and 52-35=17.
In Science we started work on a new unit- Light. We sorted cards into light sources and non-light sources. We also had good fun with some feely bags, trying to work out what was inside. we had some very strange ideas! We also started building our group volcanoes- see the photos below. Each week will show a new stage in their development until the final eruption!
