Chain reactions

After making chain reactions last week, this week we wrote some short explanations to explain how they work. We were thinking about the conjunctions we were going to use and choosing the appropriate verbs when writing them. 

Chain reaction

We really enjoyed making these ‘chains reactions’ in English this week. We used conjunctions and lots of impressive verbs to explain how our chain reactions worked. If you have any chain reaction games at home (like mousetrap) it would be great to play them and practise explaining how they work!

Lots of maths

This week we revisited the learning we did over lockdown about multiplication before moving on to learning about division next week. We used cubes to build arrays before drawing them and writing the multiplication sentences to go with them! In English we’re reading a fun book called ‘Monsters – an owner’s guide’ and we’ll be …

We used instructions like ‘half turn clockwise’ and ‘move forwards 3 squares’ to move our objects to a chosen position on a grid. We’ll be practising this more over the weekend …

Sewing

This week we practised our sewing skills in preparation for making finger puppets. You can see how hard we had to concentrate! We would love it if you could practise this skill at home as well – it’s a difficult skill to master so the more practice the better! We were using running stitch.

Science

This week in science we went outside and observed some plants and trees. We used magnifying glasses so we could look closely at the different parts. 

Back to school

We’ve had a good first week back at school. In maths we’ve been recapping the mental strategies we can use for addition as well as using concrete resources to add two 2-digit numbers together. In English we’re using non-fiction texts to research sharks so that we can write non-chronological reports about them! 

Red Nose Day

We had lots of fun on Red Nose Day and enjoyed wearing our red clothes to raise money for charity!
