Week beginning 14th September 2020
This week in English, we have begun to read our new topic text of ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ by Michael Morpurgo. We have explored getting know the main character of Michael through describing his personality and appearance. Furthermore, we have been developing our knowledge of upskilling our writing. We have been learning about relative clause and how they add more detail to our sentences as well as understanding the difference between subordinating and coordinating conjunctions.
This week in maths, we have been developing our confidence rounding to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. We learnt the helpful rhyme of, ‘Zero to four slide to the floor, five to nine climb the vine’. In addition, we have been practicing our skill of counting in multiples of 10 and 100 as well as learning how to count and use numbers over 1000.
We have started our new topic of ‘SPLASH!’, this is a topic all about water. This week, we have focused on developing our scientific knowledge of states of matter. We explored properties of solids, liquids and gases, investigated how temperature can effect and change a state of matter and recognised what objects and materials can be categorised into these three states of matter.
