In English, this week we focused on using adverbs in our writing while using the content of our Ancient Egypt topic. We have now begun to draft our non-chronological reports on Tutankhamun and practiced responding to teacher feedback and editing our writing to help us improve.
In maths, we have been exploring number lines that represent a variety of different numbers; we have even looked at number lines up to 1000! We have been looking at how we can identify a numbers place on a number line even when it is not demarcated. This has been a little tricky. However, we have been practicing our estimation to help us make an educated guess as to what the number could be. Please find the maths sheets attached here if you wish to consolidate any learning with your child. Au1 W4 Maths Worksheets
In science, we have been exploring the rock cycle and how three different types of rock fit into it. In RE, our Sikhism topic continued with us looking at the 5 Ks and why they are important to Sikhs. In PSHE we discussed consequences and what that means. We then explored scenarios, and thought about what we thought the consequences of those things happening would be. We also spoke about whether all actions created consequences. In TasteEd we explored the language of food and how using certain adjectives to describe our food can either make them sound more or less appetizing. We also tried a variety of vegetables, including radishes, beansprouts, spring onion and raw broccoli.
This week in Physical Education, we continued to focus on footwork and coordination skills.
You can practice these by logging into your REAL PE at home class account https://real.jasmineactive.com/login and trying out the footwork and coordination (skill) challenges.
In English, we will be writing up our non-chronological reports, with a grammar focus on conjunctions.
In maths, we move on to apply our knowledge of number lines to the context of measurement (capacity).
Have a great weekend!
