In Maths we have been learning how to solve multiplication problems using 'repeated addition' and our learning wall helps remind us of the methods we can use, concrete (with apparatus) pictorial (using drawings) and abstract (with numerals).
This week in maths we have been learning to divide using repeated subtraction. Counting back in 2's, 3's and 4's has been tricky but we know that the more we practise the better we get. We have also been using RUCSAC to help us solve division word problems. This is a picture of our working wall and we use it in our lessons to support our learning.
In Literacy we have been using sentence openers, similes and conjunctions (joining words for us oldies!) to make our writing more interesting. The Twits have been great fun to describe as they are utterly revolting!
We started our Literacy learning at the beginning of week 3 by making wormy spaghetti. We mixed, squished, squashed, stirred, smelled, touched and even tasted the revolting recipe that Mrs Twit used in the story. Our experiences helped us generate adjectives for our instruction writing. Look at our faces in the photos, it was just like Marmite, you either loved it or hated it!
In Literacy this week we have been using adverbs and imperative (bossy) verbs to write instructions to make wormy spaghetti. It was fun imagining we were Mrs Twit!
We have started our Science topic - Living Things & Their Habitats and comparing where different living creatures live and what they do there. Next week we will be finding out about what all living things need to survive and grow.
We have carried on our science learning by thinking about what plants need in their habitat to grow and survive. This is going to help us next term when we start growing our own plants.
