This week in English, we focused on compound sentences and using conjunctions to put together two simple sentences. We also explored non chronological reports and what features they have. Together we identified that they have a title, subheadings, and introduction, images, captions and technical language. To end the week we drafted the introduction to our own non chronological reports about Tutankhamun.
In maths, continued to look at number and place value. We explored how to compare three digit numbers using the < > = signs. We also looked at multiples of ten and how to identify the next and previous multiple of 10 from any given number up to three digits. If you would like to consolidate any maths learning from this week, the worksheets can be found here:
In geography, we learnt about the River Nile and how important it was for the Anicent Egyptians. We found out that they Egyptians created an irrigation system for when the Nile flooded to water their plants, as well as how the river was used for washing and transportation. We then went on in groups to act out how the Nile was used. In history we explored what the Ancient Egyptians believed. We explored their belief in gods and learnt about five gods and what the Egyptians believed they did.
In science, we discussed fair testing and created our own fair test to find out the hardness of different rocks.
In guided reading, we continued our book, ‘I Was There… Tutankhamun’s Tomb’ by Sue Reid. We explored character this week picking out how the writer uses language to portray the characters in different ways.
In PE, we did gymnastics on Thursday and continued to focus on footwork skills on Friday.
Wishing you all a restful weekend.
