IPC Learning Journey
In HISTORY we have continued our learning on inventions which help us to communicate. We have been great enquirers, finding out lots of fascinating facts about certain inventions, like the television and the telephone. Do you know who invented the telephone? What inventions do you know? Maybe you can do some of your own research at home.
In LITERACY we have been practising speaking and writing in the past tense. We listened carefully to the different sounds that are made when we change a present tense verb to the past tense. Next, we looked at some of the rules for writing in the past tense. Some words just need you to add ed e.g. jump/jumped but for others we need to do something different e.g. run/ran. We enjoyed sorting these words into the correct groups. Finally, we practised changing present tense sentences to the past tense.
In MATHS we have been busy sequencing numbers in 2s, 5s and 10s. We sorted these numbers into groups using venn and carroll diagrams.
Next week we are going to be practising doubling and halving numbers.
In LITERACY we have started a new unit about traditional stories.
We read and looked at different fairy tales; for example the Ugly Duckling, Jack and the Beanstalk and Cinderella. We acted out Little Red Riding Hood with finger puppets and we sequenced the story. We learnt about the different senses and how Little Red Riding Hood would feel in the forest. Can you think about how she would feel? What can you hear in the forest? What can you see around you?
Next week we will practise with some tools to improve our writing and change the ending of the story!
In MATHS we continued with addition and introduced bridging through 10. We were shown how "to bridge" through ten (add enough to make ten and then add the rest) to find the answer. We learnt how to round up to the nearest ten as a quick strategy of addition instead of counting on.
