We have dived straight in with our new topic of Roald Dahl and 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'. Lots of us have already read the book or watched the film and have a great understanding. Some of us are enjoying experiencing it for the first time!
In Literacy we spent Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday preparing for our setting description of Charlie's house by reading Roald Dahl's own description, adding in our own adjectives with a partner and considering how the Bucket family would have felt when living in that house. We focused on our use of question marks and using subordinating conjunctions as sentence starters.
In Maths we have been building upon our number facts and figuring out how we can use these to help us solve trickier questions. For example 24 + 46, we know that 4 and 6 make a new 10 so we can add 2 tens, 4 tens and the new ten. We have given some fantastic explanations this week and it has been interesting to see the different ways we can work it out mentally.
In Science we are learning about plants and growth. We have each planted our own bean seed and are watching them grow from the windowsill. We have also planted some class potatoes. Every week we will write about the changes we have observed and what we think will happen next.
In History we learnt all about the life of Roald Dahl and then had a go at making our own timeline of some of his famous books.
