Week beginning 04/12/2017
Our Learning Challenge:
Why wouldn't a dinosaur make a good pet?
Highlights Last Week:
Last week in English, we looked at the features of an explanation text. Features included a title, steps in order, topic specific vocabulary, adverbs of time and conjunctions to join ideas. On Friday we wrote our own explanation texts about the life cycle of a frog.
In maths we focused on subtracting two digit numbers. We also looked at doubling numbers to 50.
In topic we continued our work on explanation texts from English and looked at the life cycle of a sea turtle.
English: This week we will write an explanation text on the life cycle of sea turtle using all of the skills learnt in both English and topic.
Maths: We will look at sequences and number sequences.
Topic: This week we will finish our work on sea turtle life cycles.

Keep up the great work!
