Week 2: 9.11.2020

This weeks learning has been:

 

English

-We have been looking at the traditional fable of 'The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse'. 

-Red class re told the story through sequencing pictures and adding captions. 

-We then wrote a persuasive informal letter from Town Mouse to Country Mouse convincing him to come for another visit. 

 

Maths

-We started this week with reviewing repeated addition. 

-We then looked at how we can represent this in groups. We also looked how many groups each number sentence had and how many is in each group.

-We then looked at the multiplication sign and discussed what it means (times, multiply and groups of). 

-We then looked at how 3 x 4 is the same as 3 groups of 4. 

-Red class learnt how to draw an array to help solve their multiplication sums. 

 

Geography

-We started by looking at Devon. We looked at where Devon is on a map, how far it is from London, its landscape, human and physical features. 

-Red class then wrote sentences comparing Devon and London. We spoke about the similarities between an area in the countryside and a city. 

 

Phonics/Spelling:

-This week we have been looking at the letter 'y' and how it can make both an 'ee' or 'igh' sound at the end of a word. 

 

Children in Need

-We started off the day by joining in with the last half an hour of Joe Wicks 24 hour challenge. Red class were very tired after half an hour but AMAZED at his endeavour. 

-In the afternoon we spoke about taking notice of others around us and how we can do things to help those who may be less fortunate than ourselves.

-As part of our take notice lesson we took part in the Malteaser Challenge!!!
