Term 1, week 2

Another brilliant week this week!  We have been looking at a folk tale - the Stone Trolls - in our Literacy learning. This story inspired us to write character descriptions of mythical beasts. We also challenged ourselves to use similes in our writing.

In Maths we have been continuing our learning on place value. Year 4 have been rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and 100, and counting in multiples of 1000. Year 3 have been ordering and representing numbers. 

In our Topic learning we have been looking at islands around the world and started some research about physical and human features of islands around the world. In science, we have been continuing to look at food groups and healthy diets and we used the school menu to categorise meals into the correct food groups.

Well done for working so hard this week Maple class!
