This week in Maths we have been learning about multiplication and division. We have been working on multiples, factors, factor pairs, common factors and square numbers. We are going to do a little bit more learning on square numbers next week as we got a little bit confused with multiplying by 2 whilst we were working with higher numbers.
In English we have done some really fantastic work. We have been learning about cinquain poems and we have worked hard to count the syllables to fit in the structure of the poem. We have been experimenting with words and phrases thinking carefully about how we can help the reader to visualise. We have thought about metaphors, personification and we have looked to find synonyms to help us edit our phrases so that they fit in the poem. We also thought about how cinquains, although short, can tell a story.
In topic we have continued our learning on WW1. We have learnt about the trenches and created some lovely bunting to show case our cinquain poems.
