To begin our learning in HISTORY we were given the tricky task of sorting a variety of communication inventions from the past and present into correct groups. It was hard to tell what some of the inventions were supposed to be - they look a lot different today from how they used to look. We then learnt more about chronological order and how to sequence objects on a timeline. We looked for clues to help us ...what materials is it made from?? Have you seen one of these before??
In LITERACY we finished writing our nonsense poems based on the Ning, Nang, Nong. We had great fun in our teams making up our own nonsense verses. We tried to include all the features in our toolkit.
Next week we will be practising our grammar skills; changing words to the past tense using 'ed'. Can you think of any words which don't follow this rule e.g run/ran.
In Maths we practised finding 10 more or 10 less than a given number. We looked for patterns to help us. This also helped us when solving addition problems using three small numbers. First we had to find the matching number bonds to 10. Then add the final number. We then showed our understanding by making our own problems using 3 numbers.
Next week we will be learning about doubling and halving.
In LITERACY we have finished our film reviews. We learned how to write a synopsis; the story of the film in short descriptions. We also learned how to write down our opinion about the film and to give reasons why we like or don’t like something using the word ‘because’.
Next week we will learn about some traditional tales and start writing our own versions.
In MATHS we've been learning about adding 11, 12, 13, 21, 22, 23, 31, 32 and 33 to two-digit numbers.
We also learned how to add 2-digit numbers by counting on in tens and ones, add near multiples of 10 by adding tens and adjusting; identify and test patterns. We practised some mental addition by partitioning and adding near multiples through games.
