20/09/2017 - Inset day
We have watched two very emotive videos about how a small act of kindness can give huge rewards . We thought about careers we may choose and how we could make a difference .
What came first ?
Can you answer this time old question , as we set off on our journey through EVOLUTION.
The questions we are investigating are :
1. Who is Charles Darwin and why is he so famous ?
2. Can fish really fly ?
3. Which birds beak is the best?
4. What do we know about evolution ?
5. Why are the Galapogus Islands so important?
In Numeracy we will be consolidating your place value knowledge (up to 1,000,000) and closing those gaps on the four operations (+ - x /) , ironing out any misconceptions you may have . Looking at the connections between % , decimals and fractions and how to convert these .We will also be ordering numbers up to 1000000 and decimals to 3dp .
In Literacy we will be looking at the different word classes as part of our GPS learning . Learning about different genres and how to identify them and writing our own stories based on our favourite genre .
