Horse Chestnut 2nd – 6th October

Next Week’s Learning:

English – Diary Writing 
Maths – Addition and subtraction – column method subtraction.
Big Question – Why am I here?



This week, we explored the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in the story. We used a parachute to help with our description. We thought about the rippling tremors on the ground and created a mushroom cloud of ash that we sat underneath. This helped us imagine the heaviness of the ash. We then planned our own versions of Escape from Pompeii. 


We began our new topic of Addition and Subtraction! We started by adding and subtracting 1s, 10s, 100s and 1,000s. We used a place value chart and counters to support our learning. We then looked at adding and subtracting with and without exchanges. We used the column method as our chosen method.


This week we practised our tackling and tracking skills in hockey. We then played a 2v2 game. 



This week, we looked at classifying plants. We looked at both flowering and non-flowering plants. We went on a scavenger  hunt, looking for different flowering and non flowering plants as well as conkers.
