After the holiday our next Talk Topic will be: Pirates
IPC Learning Journey
This week in GEOGRAPHY we have made links between night and day, and the position of the Earth to the Sun. We have developed our understanding that it can be day in one part of the world and night in another due to the Earth’s rotation. We demonstrated this using globes and torches to represent the sun.
In LITERACY we have been learning about shape poems. First we worked in teams to describe our shape using wow words. We also tried to use similes by comparing our object using the key words ‘as’ or ‘like’. We then wrote our own shape poems relating to our unit Seeing the Light.
In MATHS this week we have been finding out all about 2D shapes and their properties. We even went on a shape hunt and found lots of different shapes around the school. What shapes can you find?
Please follow the link below and have a go at our shape splat game.
In Literacy we had a grammar week and we learned all about past tense verbs. First, we looked at the differences between present and past tense and found out that many past tense verbs end with –ed. We practised writing those in our teams, but not all of them end with –ed!
Some verbs are irregular and we need to learn them; there is no –ed rule for these! Like sing/sang or fly/flew. We played many different games to help our brains remember these tricky verbs.
In MATHS we have been using pairs to ten to find the complement to the next multiple of ten. We have been practising using pairs to 10 with the image of the 1-100 grid and the 100 beaded string to support their knowledge. We have also been practising some mental addition using near multiples and partitioning.
