Reminder: Come and join MP1 for our Family Learning Day Monday 3rd April.
There are sooooo many different types of transport all over the world. This week we have been busy finding and sorting different types of transport. We were amazed at some of the inventions out there, like the bamboo train, airbus, tuk-tuk, bullet train and loads more! We started by sorting transport into groups e.g. land, water or air. In HISTORY we then began to look at how transport has changed over time and found out some fascinating facts along the way.
In LITERACY we have been learning our poetry. We listened to Michael Rosen's Chocolate Cake. It was so funny! We tried to use all our senses to help us think of different wow words to describe chocolate. It made us very hungry. Next week we will be writing our own versions of a chocolate poem, it will be delicious!
In MATHS we consolidated our learning on fractions 1/2 and 1/4. We also learnt about 1/2 and 1/4 turns. We had lots of fun playing 'Simon Says...' using the vocabulary half, quarter and whole turns. Do you know you can even find halves and quarters on the clock!? Fractions are everywhere!
In MATHS, we continued working on subtraction with and without re-grouping. We also worked in our groups to consolidate our understanding of addition, subtraction and multiplication. New knowledge for us this week was division. We used division boards and bank stamp tiles to help us learn the concept of division.
In LITERACY we continued our work about Rumplestiltskin. We wrote about the setting of the story and we described the characters. We have improved so much talking about characters and settings of stories!
We also wrote questions to asked the different characters of the story, we had to remember to use question marks.
After we looked at the different sentence openers, for example; Suddenly, After, The next day, etc. to make our writing more interesting.
Next week we start writing the story using everything we collected in our toolkit. How exciting!
