 Welcome to our class page! Р22.9.17

This week we have started our new topic of fables. We read some of Aesop’s fables and together and acted them out in small groups. We then tried to guess the moral of the story. Towards the end of the week we have been writing a dialogue between two of the characters in the fables.

In maths we have been working on rounding and negative numbers. We have been learning to round to the nearest 10/100/100.

In science we have been learning to collect and record observations accurately. We did two experiments involving two hydropolymers – nappies and hairgel.

Next week we will be:

  • Writing our own fables. Using similes and metaphors for description.
  • Finishing off our topic of negative numbers and moving on to methods of addition and subtraction.

We have had an excellent start to the new term. We have been learning about tenses and working on our understanding of place value in maths.

Next week we will be:

  • Starting a new topic on fables, which will culminate in writing our own versions of the classic Aesop’s fables.
  • Learning to round to the nearest 10 and 100 and continuing with our work on place value.
