This week we our writing was stimulated by the story book 'The Owl who was Afraid of the Dark'. We focused on the character of 'Plop' and initially found appropriate adjectives to describe him, then used these adjectives to extend some given sentences. Finally we wrote our own character description of his appearance and personality.
In maths we returned to division (through sharing), and considered the meanings of part and whole. This then led on to dividing by two (half) and dividing by four (quarter) and learnt how to show these as equal parts which were called 'fractions'.
In other learning this week we wrote a postcard describing what we would see and do in Morocco (following on from last weeks learning), we practised balancing different size balls on different parts of our bodies and we looked at safety in the home.
Next Tuesday we will be having our 'Nightime Adventure' and I look forward to seeing many of you for what is a very exciting evening.
I look forward to seeing the Home Learning Journals on Friday.
