In literacy we have been thinking about appropriate adjectives and how to choose words which are relevant to each character or setting. We used Venn diagrams to think about how some adjectives can be used to describe multiple things but others are more specific. Which adjectives would you use to describe these two people below?
This week in maths we have been finding fractions of amounts in preparation for Maths Day! We used colour to show each fraction, which helped us to understand how much of the whole was represented. If the whole was 7 squares, and 3 of the 7 were red, then we knew that this would be shown as 3/7 and that we should show the blue as 4/7.
In literacy this week we have been continuing to look at the story The Tunnel. The start of the week began by us making our very own tunnel to see what it would feel like to be in such a confined environment. We then discussed whether two people could be friends if they were very different and thought about how differences could be positive within a friendship. Towards the end of the week, we wrote a book review which summarised ours opinions about the story.
