Diving into the depths of ‘Manfish’
This week Sycamore class have used their inference and prediction skills to unpick key ideas from our vehicle text for this half term. The children were very excited and eager to discover the classroom transformed into an aqua paradise for them to explore. The children were full of questions and ideas and used their own experiences to inform their predictions. From this, the children have created beautiful poems as an incidental write based on pollution in the ocean. The children really focused on their use of metaphors, similes and emotive language to make an impact on the reader. The children are very excited to discover more of our English unit as we progress through the coming weeks!
In maths the children have persevered with challenging equations and word problems involving multiplication and division. The children have had lots of opportunities to discuss and explore a variety of methods to inform their independent practice.
Well done Sycamore class! ???? ????
