We hope you have all been having a good week and that you have enjoyed the Summer sun so far.
This week, the children have started their new unit of learning, ‘Cracking Contraptions’. As part of their learning on explanation texts, Year Three watched short video clips of the machines from Wallace and Gromit and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. We then used Pie Corbett actions to rehearse the key vocabulary of an explanation text before designing our very own machines and labelling them with a variety of technical vocabulary. Well done Year Three! Next week, we look forward to orally rehearsing our explanation texts when using conjunctions for cause and effect.
In Maths, the children have been working hard on using a variety of written and mental strategies in order to solve a range of tricky challenge problems. In particular, we discussed which methods would be the most relevant, efficient and suitable to use, for a series of number sentences. Please refer to the activity sheet provided, for the children’s Maths home learning this week. As ever, we look forward to seeing the children’s participation and progress on Sumdog Maths.
We hope you all have a pleasant weekend in the sunshine,
Miss Honeywell, Mrs Luter and Mrs Stewart.
