Term 1


We’ve done lots of exciting learning again this week! 

In Maths,  we have been continuing with addition and subtraction; using number lines, place value grids and dienes to help us add and subtract 2 and 3 digit numbers. We have all had to persevere as it has become quite tricky but we are starting to see some well deserved success.

In English, we used conjunctions to links two ideas together and wrote persuasive speeches about why the villagers (in our English text, ‘Quill Soup’) should or should not give Noko food.

In Science, learnt about how fossils are made and even made our own fossils out of plasticine! We continued our learning about Australia in Geography. We looked at what it would be like to live there and how this compares to living in the UK. We all looked wishfully at the sunny pictures of the beach, although we also discussed how careful the Australians have to be to protect themselves from sunburn.

In History, we learnt about the different positive impacts of the Roman Invasion such as, having clean water, street cleaners, straight roads and libraries.

As well as this, we learnt how to introduce ourselves in French! In RE, we thought about the responsibilities God gave us. Finally, in Art we had a lovely session creating African animals using collage. 

We used collage to create our amazing African animals in Art today..
