Following on from last week, the children have brought their passion for justice and animal welfare into week 2 of our conservation project. Some meaningful conversations and discussions have been had, alongside deep concentration on their work.
Particularly in English, the children have thought about animal descriptions using expanded noun phrases and applied it to poetry. They have practiced drafting their poems and then publishing them alongside beautiful paintings. We have been really impressed with their final product!
During Maths we have considered addition and subtraction maths stories, breaking down word problems to figure out exactly what it is a question is asking us to do – whether it’s difference or augmentation. We also had a lot of fun imagining maths stories with each other’s names in them!
English: we will be looking at narrative with a focus on writing from different perspectives and using rhetorical questions.
Phonics: we will be exploring the sound <or> and its many different spellings (/or/ for, /aw/ jaw, /ore/ more, /ar/ warm, /our/ pour, /oar/ roar, /al/ walk, /au/ Paul, /augh/ caught, /ough/ bought, /a/ water)
Maths: we will be using our knowledge of number bonds to 10 to add 1 and 2 digit numbers together.
Science: we will be designing a microhabitat and further learning about climate change.
Geography: we will be mapping out the different climate zones on the Earth.
Gentle reminder: Please can children have season appropriate PE kit as we are outdoors in all weathers.
Thank you for such brilliant learning!
