Term 1 Week 3

It has been another fantastic week in Elm class this week and the children have really settled into the new routines and expectations.

In Literacy we have been looking at setting descriptions and how we can use similes and carefully chosen vocabulary to set a tone for the atmosphere we are trying to create. We described an underwater park to practice our descriptive skills, then wrote more extensively to describe Robinson Crusoe’s tent and the island he is stranded on.

In Maths we have all continued looking at place value. We have looked at flexible partitioning, Year 3 up to 100, and Year 4 up to 1000. We then used our knowledge of place value to compare and order numbers.

In our Geography learning we looked at major rivers around the world and used atlases to locate and plot them onto maps. In Science we made predictions for what materials would be able to be seen in complete darkness. Many of Elm class believe they can see in the dark and we will be testing this as Mr Saunders thinks they can’t.

Thank you for supporting us with sending children to school in correct PE kit. Remember children should be reading daily and recording this in their reading records. This is in addition to TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed. We would love to win the times table trophy this year!

We hope you have a lovely weekend!

Mr Saunders and Mrs Hendry.
