Our Learning Challenge for this half term will be:
What makes Africa a special place?
Highlights Last Week:
English: We started looking at our new text. We made inferences from illustrations and also about how characters felt. We described a setting and justified our opinions.
Maths: We continued to learn about place value. We learned about the 10s and 1s in 2-digit numbers and continued to find 10 more and 10 less. We related this to money by finding 10p more and 10p less.
Topic: We introduced our new learning challenge question ‘What makes Africa a special place?’ We classified objects into living, non-living and has never lived and also started to look at abstract art.
English: This week we will be learning about using exclamation marks in our writing. We will continue to work on our new text ‘Lila and the Secret of the Rain’. We will complete some story mapping, retelling and sequencing activities based on the story. We will then be retelling the story in our own words. In preparation for this please discuss the story with your children. You could ask them to tell you about the setting, the characters and what happens in the story.
Maths: This week we will be learning about adding and subtracting. We will add and subtract multiples of ten and near multiples of 10. We will also look at solving addition and subtraction problems and making amounts of money.
Topic: This week we will be continuing to classify animals in different ways. We will also continue to look at abstract art and start to learn about the seven continents.
