Highlights Last Week
English: We started to look at our new text 'Chocolate Planet'. We learnt about making predictions, describing a setting and writing in the past. We also asked and answered questions about the text.
Maths: We learnt about multiplication and division. We learnt about how to solve multiplication and division number sentences using counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
Topic: We introduced the new challenge question 'Where does chocolate come from?' We asked the children to think about what they already knew and what they wanted to find out about chocolate.
English: This week we will be continuing our work on Chocolate Planet. We will be planning and retelling the story using what we have already learnt about the story and writing in the past. Please ask your child to tell you about what happens in Chocolate Planet to help them prepare for retelling the story.
Maths: This week we will be return to learning about fractions. We will recap how to find fractions of numbers including finding 2/3 and 3/4 of a number. We will also look at finding fractions of shapes which have been split into many parts and solving problems involving fractions.
Topic: This week we will be following a set of instructions and also writing our own instructions. We will also learn about Fair Trade including what this means.
