A great week of learning in Hawthorn class!
We have begun our new topic ‘Cheshire & a Contrasting European Region’. The children had their place knowledge put to the test when they were tasked with locating Cheshire on a map of the UK and France on a map of Europe. They were then able to use atlases to check if they had identified the correct location. Following this, the children recorded a description of both places, referencing the 8 compass points.
In English, the children have been focussing on different elements of grammar and – practising how to include adverbial phrases, modal verbs and parenthesis into their writing in order to engage the reader. The children are building up a toolkit of effective writing techniques ahead of writing their character description next week.
In Maths, we have been continuing our fractions unit. The children have been comparing and ordering fractions and finding the common denominator in order to add together fractions with different denominators.
