We have had a very enjoyable Book Week! We have been reading the story 'We're Going To Find A Monster'. It's about a brother and sister who turn waking their older brother up for breakfast into an exciting adventure to find a monster. On their journey they passed a 'fearsome, fierce tiger' and they sailed a 'shimmering ocean'. We thought of our own adjectives to describe settings to make our own adventure map. We concentrated on our handwriting while creating the maps and some of us used the best handwriting we had ever done! Next week we will be researching the myth of the Loch Ness Monster. This might be a good thing to learn about for our Home Learning Journals this weekend. We have also been turning real and fake words into split digraph words by adding the magic 'e'. E.g. pin -> pine, hop -> hope and chin -> chine. Miss White has challenged us to create our own lists in our journals this weekend.
In Maths we have been persevering with the column method. Most of us are now able to use it to work out simple addition and subtraction of 2 digit numbers. Some of us have even begun to understand how to carry a 10 for addition and exchange a 10 for subtraction. We have spent time ensuring we know how to lay out the column method clearly to help us solve the question.
Our Topic this week has been Geography. We have enjoyed learning all about swamps and marshes, rivers and streams and lochs and lakes, ready for our learning of the Loch Ness Monster next week. We used Google Earth to find the Scottish lochs and to find the River Nile, the longest river in the world. Next week we'll be focusing on R.E.
We hope you have a lovely weekend.
