What Have We Achieved This Week?
This week, we started our new topic: ' Inside the Big Top! ' We kicked off with a circus sensory experience- what could we smell, hear, see and taste? There was popcorn included! We gathered vocabulary and began describing these things to help us write our own amazing setting description for the fun fair and circus on Tuesday. We then started to read Leon and the Place Between, studying the pictures and the language to infer about the characters. Later on in the week, we put on a Readers Theatre Performance of a section of the book, using expression, volume and speed to create atmosphere.
In Science, we have started our new topic - Light. In PE, we learnt the key skills for throwing under arm in Cricket.
In maths, we have been learning column method for multiplication and we have been solving multiplication and division problems.
