Term 1 week 3

Hello :) 

What an amazing week we have had completing some outstanding learning!

Literacy

This week we have been building on our knowledge from last week and have begun to look at diary entries. We have read a story all about Oliver Twist, an orphaned child during Victorian England and started to think about how we would write in the past tense. We wrote our own diary entries about things we did over the weekend to practice and then learned about using adjectives to extend and add detail to our writing. 

Maths 

This week we have continued to look at place value. We have been partitioning numbers into tens and ones and then challenging ourselves to see how many different ways we can partition numbers! We have also started to look at reading and writing numbers both numerically and in the written form up to 100. Oak Class have focused on their 5 times table this week, learning fun songs, games and patterns when recording our learning. 

Afternoon 

In the afternoon we have been just as busy. In History we looked at the life of a significant person - Queen Victoria. We looked at the key parts of her life, created a timeline and then discussed why she was significant to us. In DT, we have been looking at the suitability of materials that we have selected when designing our own Victorian toys. We discussed why some materials were used and why others weren't. We have also completed a science lesson on oral hygiene, discussing the importance of cleaning our teeth and all the class were able to take home their own tooth brush and toothpaste as part of the lesson! 

Reminders: 

Home learning is set via Microsoft Teams every Friday and is due back the following Thursday. This week's home learning is due back by Thursday 29th September 2022.
