Next week’s learning:
Maths – continuing our fractions unit.
English – We will begin our new topic of writing with suspense.
In Maths, we have been looking at mixed numbers and improper fractions. We really got to understand what this meant. We moved our learning on to converting between the two. We used our skills of multiplication and division to help us. We ended the week by looking at equivalent fractions.
In English, we continued looking at Greta and comparing her with the Giants. We used antonyms and synonyms along with adjectives and similes. Then we looked at comparative conjunctions such as however, but and whereas to join our comparative sentences together.
In Geography, we looked at climates around the world. Using maps, we were able to see which countries had tropical, temperate, equatorial, polar and warm climates. We used this knowledge to colour in our own maps!
