Week Beginning 1st February 2016
Date: 7th Feb 2016 @ 6:02pm
In our literacy this week we have been working on simple past and perfect present verb tenses. We have been using those in our writing to create a newspaper report about a story that started in the past but is continuing to affect the characters in the present tense! It has been quite tricky but we have worked hard to try and use the correct tense in our writing.
In Maths this week we have been using mental and written methods to multiply 2- and 3-digit numbers by single digits. We have then started to use these methods to help us to solve problems using multiplication.
We have been learning about the Jewish festival of light and the games that they play during the celebration. We have created our own Dreidel and have learnt the rules of how to play the game. It was lots of fun!
In our topic work this week we have been learning about the different types of volcanoes and how they are formed from the tectonic plates in the Earth's crust. We have also learnt about the Earth and it's layers.
