Yorkshire

Week beginning Monday 21st November 

 

This week, Yorkshire have shown their fantastic listening skills with their talk partners. Their challenge:  'can you recap what your partner said?'. This is a difficult skill and the children are improving all the time. Keep up the great work everyone.

 

In History, we continue to find out more about the invasion of the Vikings and the response of the Anglo-Saxons. The children are comparing the two cultures in different ways. 

 

In Maths, we have been reviewing some learning from last term and this. The children are showing great recall of their multiplication tables; they can always get faster though!

 

This week we have been exploring non-fiction texts and by the end of the week the children will have written their own fact file about beetles. This will show the features of non-fiction writing, such as, sub-headings, a glossary and illustrations.
