In Maths this week, the children have been recapping subtraction and using the inverse operation to work out mystery numbers.
In English this week, we have been focussed on collecting effective vocabulary from the model text to use in our own cliffhanger narratives. We also experimented with semi colons to link together related clauses.
It was an exciting week in reading this week as we celebrated World Book Day 2021. The children had a virtual visit from children’s author, Struan Murray, who talked to them about the power of doodling and word building. They then used his tips to create a map of an imaginary island for our own fantasy story.
Some children were so inspired that they have set to work on writing the chapters of their own fantasy stories!
We look forward to welcoming you back to school on Monday morning!
