Wow! What a fantastic week back in school with Sycamore class. The children have adapted well to the new routines and have been fantastically engaged with their learning!
In maths this week we have been recapping our knowledge on Multiplication methods. The children used lots of manipulatives to look at multiplication by grouping. The children have also looked at written methods of multiplication and they have given their reasoning for their preferred method. Next week we will be recapping the key concepts of division!
In English this week we have been continuing with our mythical narrative unit! The children have been exploring lots of different writing techniques such as similes, fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases. We began to plan our myth narratives based on Arthur and the Golden rope.
In our science lesson this week we implemented our zoom learning into practical experiments. The children created a simple series circuit. We spoke about the way that electricity flows and discussed how to draw a circuit using the scientific symbols.
