Week Beginning: 18.9.23
This week we have been working really hard on developing our descriptive writing skills using fronted adverbials and ambitious vocabulary. We looked carefully at The Great Kapok Tree story and craeted our own characters and dilemma. We are very proud of our work as we have achieved much of our success criteria and next week, we are looking forward to editing and evaluting our final written pieces.
We are also enjoying creating wonderful, colourful and vibrant displays with our homework projects. We look forward to welcoming many more into school.
Week Beginning: 11.9.23
It has been an exciting time settling back into school and continuing our KS2 journey!
This week we have been looking at The Great Kapok Tree book, which is centered around the plight of the Amazon Rainforest. The children wrote detailed descriptions of the story setting and completed story maps to retell the story.
We have also been learning about 'Living Things' in science and started off this week by classifying animals into groups.
In maths, we have been concentrating on place value of numbers up to 10,000, with ordering, comparing and rounding to follow in the coming weeks. All in all, a busy but very productive start to our term!
