This Week’s Learning

Topic: We began the week by identifying the features and structure of non-chronological reports and then gathered vocabulary to use in our  own reports. We then planned our own non-chronological reports and wrote a report about an Australian animal of our choice. Finally, we edited our non-chronological reports.

Maths: We started the week by recognising three quarters. We then went on to find a quarter and two quarters of amounts so that we could find three quarters the following day. We finished the week by representing two digit numbers and beginning to understand column addition.

Homework and Spellings

The children have been set a Maths based activity that focuses on finding fractions of amounts and shapes.  Please find this in their homework books and return by Thursday 28th  March at the latest. Children have a new list of spellings to take home this week, which focuses on ‘apostrophes for contractions’. The spelling quiz will be on Friday 29th March. Please keep your spelling sheets at home to practise.
