Our Learning Challenge for this half term will be:
What makes West Drayton a good place to live?
Highlights Last Week:
English: We started looking at our new text. We responded to an illustration and also made predictions about what we thought might happen in the text. We started to learn about where Belle, a character in the text, lives.
Maths: We learned about place value and splitting 2-digit numbers into the tens and ones. We wrote number sentences to represent our partitioning. We then used our knowledge of place value to help us to add 9, 10 and 11.
Topic: We introduced our new learning challenge question ‘Why is West Drayton a good place to live?’ We started to learn about human and physical features and sorted some features accordingly. We also started to learn about using online photos and looked at photos of West Drayton on Flickr.
English: This week we will be learning about fact files. We will be starting to write our own fact file linked to our text.
Maths: This week we will be learning about mental addition and subtraction. We will be using our bonds to subtract from 10 and 20 and also finding the difference by counting on.
Topic: This week we will be learning about habitats in order to help us to write our fact files. We will be starting to look at landscapes in art. We will also be learning about the camera and taking photos in computing.
