This week Sycamore class have been looking at the local area in more detail. We explored the ordnance survey map of the local area. The class were very excited and could even see our school on the official map! We looked at all of the different symbols on maps and spoke about how a cartographer (A map designer) has to use these to show what the parts of the map show.
The children have demonstrated excellent skills in their mathematics! We have been focusing on equivalent fractions and demonstrating their understanding through the use of bar models and numicon.
In English this week we have started to look at an information report and comparing the language in a non-fiction text to a narrative or fiction text. We have focused on understanding the model text. Next week we will begin to gather our own research contributing to our own Information report!
