Are you going back to your home country for the summer?
Are you going to a new country/place?
Will you be visiting family/friends?
In our Learning Journey we moved on to International Mindedness. We spoke about stories from different countries. We know some of the stories are based in different places, but we didn't exactly know where about. We did research about the pictures and the setting to find out where the stories are from. In the end we've used our geography skills and plotted those pictures on the world map.
In Year 1 we had a try at division in mathematics. We tried division through sharing. Some of us could do this already mentally, some of us shared real objects or drew the division on a white board. We also tried to do division with remainders! This was quite tricky, we'll do some more work on this next week!
In literacy we learned a new type of word: adverb. Those words tell us mostly about how something is done. Everyone knew so many examples! Nicely, quickly, carefully, etc! We drafted our recipe about how to make gingerbread men. Hopefully we can add in some adverbs soon!
Year 2 has been inventors this week in literacy. We have been inventing new ways to transport Zeraffa Giraffa from Marseille to Paris. We wrote explanation texts explaining how these modes of transport work. We also included annotated diagrams of our designs.
In maths we have been revising our understanding of place value. We made some great connections with our learning and some of us even started to use column addition. When solving word problems we looked for clues and drew pictures to help us understand and solve the problem.
