Week 5: 4th October 2019

This Week in Dolphins we have been learning...


Maths: In maths we started to look at halving and used a speaking frame to practice our understanding of what a half means. We then started looking at subtracting two digit numbers and had a go at some ourselves drawing our tens and ones to help us. 


Literacy: In literacy we looked at the features of a formal letter and had a go at writing one of our own from the viewpoint of Thomas Farriner. We had a great time and remembered so much about how the fire of London started to include in our letter!


Topic: In art we used chalk pastels to create dramatic and stand out Fire of London scenes. We had a go at blending the colours and layering colours on top of others. We also had a fun music session were we looked at the different churches of London through song (oranges and lemons).


Next week we will be looking at the fire of London in more detail and continuing to practice subtraction.
