A huge thank you to all the parents/carers that attended our Welcome Meeting on Wednesday afternoon. We hope that you found the meeting informative and know that if you should have any questions who you can contact.
This week we published our first piece of writing in our Creative Curriculum book, each child tried extremely hard to improve their presentation and we are very proud of them. They have set themselves some great targets for the year ahead. We have began the first genre (description) which has been based on a WWI Battlefield. We have looked at photographs and videos to help uncover some key vocabulary required to produce our description. In lessons, we have looked at a variety of sentence types and figurative language techniques to ensure we create imagery for the reader in our chosen words. Today, we have began to draft this piece which we will be continuing next week.
In Maths, we have continued our journey with Place Value and studied number lines, comparing integers, rounding and negative numbers. We have looked at reasoning questions to deepen our understanding and enable us to explain our knowledge clearly to our peers and the teacher.
In Science, we continued to delve into the human body. We have focused on the circulatory system this week and became different body parts to help explain the process that occurs in our body to help transport oxygenated blood to each body part. We looked at an amazing website to help build our knowledge and understanding – please continue to explore at home (https://thehumanbodygame.co.uk).
