This week in English we have been reading the story The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr. The children have been recapping on what a verb is – a verb is simply a doing or action word. They were able to identify lots of verbs in the story and also think of different verbs that could be used. We have also been learning about expanded noun phrases- here is a great video you can watch. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/articles/z3nfw6f Next week the children will be writing their own version of the story!
In maths we have been thinking about place value. We have been using tens and ones, numicon and arrow cards to create 2 digit numbers. We know that the different digits have different values- for example the number 12 is made up of the digits 1 and 2 but we know that the 1 is worth 10 and the 2 is worth 2.
We have been busy in ICT creating artwork for our topic books. We have been using a program on Purple Mash.
This term PE will usually be on Mondays for Mrs Ellis’s class and Tuesdays for Mrs Prophet’s class. We will be learning some animals inspired dance to go alongside our topic Carnival of the Animals.
