Things to celebrate
Last term we enjoyed learning about Neil Armstrong and trying to decide whether he was the most significant astronaut.
In English the children finished the term by writing a non-chronological report about the Moon. We were really impressed with the facts they managed to learn about this.
The children were introduced to column addition and subtraction in Maths; this was tricky to begin with but they are getting better and better all the time. They enjoy the idea of having to ‘steal’ a ten in some of the subtractions!
We also spent a lot of time rehearsing our nativity and we are so proud of the children; they worked so hard learning their lines and projecting their voices!
In English this term we are beginning with instructions. The children made their own sandwiches and wrote their own set of instructions to go with them.
We will be focusing on Multiplication and Division in Maths this term. Here is an example of an array, we use these to help the children understand the concept of multiplication.
In Science we will be finding out about animals and in computing we will be learning how to write algorithms to learn some simple programming.
