In guided reading we have finished reading The Iron Man. We really enjoyed all of the fantastic descriptions of the Space-Bat-Angel-Dragon and of the Iron Man's challenge. We compared the text with The Paper Bag Princess (one of my all time favourites) to discuss the similarities and differences between the challenges set in the book.

Thank you to the children that have been bringing in fossils and other types of rocks to support our learning. We have loved hearing you talk about them!

In Geography we have been learning about techtonic plates. We created a tectonic plate jigsaw and placed it on water to show how the plates can shift and rub together, causing Earthquakes. Check out this link to learn more. 

In maths this week, we have been learning about money. We have made amounts in different ways and coverted pounds and pence. 

In Citizenship, we have been celebrating Pride  Month by celebrating our differences and the things that make us who we are. We read the book Llama Glamarama and then drew pictures in our heart maps of the things that are significant and help to make us who we are. 

The Borrowers celebrated achieving another Class Wide Reward party by using the PE equipment in the hall. We had a great time climbing and traversing!

We have been doing some amazing coding using Scratch in computing. We have learned how to program a sprite to change it's costume, move and play sounds.

In English, we have been learning how to use subordinating conjunctions to help us write clear sentences about Mary Anning. We used scrambled sentences and worked together to join a main clause and a subordinate clause using a conjunction.

In reading this week, we have been thinking about how to be successful practice partners. We developed rules for us to follow and started working on shared reading.

In English, we have started learning about Mary Anning, using the brilliant book Stone Girl, Bone Girl. We used drama to create freeze frames to infer how she might have felt when she first discovered fossils.

In maths, we have been learning to add fractions. We split whole objects apart and then added the numerators to give us different amounts.
