Horse Chestnut 29th January – 2nd February

Next week’s learning:

English – Continuing suspense writing
Maths – Dividing with remainders and 3 digits. 

Maths:

This week, we have been focusing on different methods for dividing. We discussed how we used place value counters and we extended this by looking at bus stop method. We then went back to the pace value counters when it came to questions that used remainders in the answer. 

English:

We continued looking at the story of Wolves in the Walls. We focused on the wolf party – so we had our own! We created wolf masks to get into character and then danced to wolfish music!

PE:

This week, we continued focusing on yoga. We looked at the downward dog, cobra and mountain pose. We practiced these in pairs and focused on our breathing remembering what part of the pose we breathed in and out.
