This Week’s Learning – wb 19.09.22

 

In topic, we learnt about famous Arctic explorers Robert Falcon-Scott and Roald Amundsen who raced to get to the South Pole first. Children watched a video and read information about them and used what they had learnt to create story map about their expeditions, focussing on how one of the team members sacrificed himself to the cold in order not to slow the others down. We then used this as inspiration to plan a persuasive letter pretending we were Falcon-Scott, writing to our team mate to not sacrifice himself. We will be writing these next week so keep an eye out for work in our gallery.

 

We started the week completing baseline assessments. Towards the end of the week, in maths, we continued with multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 before moving on to calculating the difference between negative numbers.

 

 We didn’t have a music session this week because of the Bank Holiday but are looking forward to it next week.

 

In French, this week we have been learning how to use the verb faire with different pronouns.  It’s a tricky verb because it is irregular.  To practice go to: 

Faire (to do/make) — Present Tense (French verbs conjugated by Learn French With Alexa) up to 3.20 but you can go on and listen to the many ways you can use faire. 

 

 

Next Week’s Learning – wb 26.09.22

 

Next week in topic, we will be comparing past and present Arctic explorers and expeditions and using this to plan and write an explanation text about how humans can survive in the Arctic.

 

In maths, we will be using the column method to add and subtract numbers, including ones with exchanging as well as moving on to multiplying by a one digit number.

 

In music, we will be continuing to use Soundtrap to create our own online music piece.

 

Next week in French, we will be writing about what our friends are doing using different pronouns.

In topic, we have been learning about the similarities and differences between the polar regions. Children used their Winbooks and ipads to do their research and then wrote comparative information reports to present what they had found out. We then learnt about how animals have adapted to live in their environment and compared animals in the polar regions with animals in the desert.  

  

In maths, we have been continuing with place value and used greater than and less than to compare numbers. We then used this knowledge to solve problems in partners using counters. We will continue to focus on place value next week, looking at Roman numerals and rounding. 

  

 

Bonjour! This half term we will be learning about how to say what hobbies we like and revising how to talk about ourselves.  This week, we have been saying positive adjectives to describe ourselves and our friends.  You could ask your child to recall some of the adjectives and how they might describe you and other members of the family.
