Sorry this is latter than normal, I have had computer issues over the last few days.
It has been another busy week in Squirrels. We have done some location spotting, lots of Historical writing and thought about how Hindus pray on a daily basis. Read on to find out more…
In English this week we have created a double page spread thinking in detail about the Vikings and how they lived. We have also thought about a story mountain for our Historical Narrative story which helped u finalise our own story and box it up. The children have really thought about the feelings of their character, what they would experience with their five senses in the world of the Vikings and how they might get back home. They have already made a great start on the opening paragraph that really makes you want to read on!
In Maths this week Year 3 have been thinking about scaling, how they can use multiplication to work out combinations and how they can discover how calculations are related to each other.
Year 4 have been learning how to multiply and divide by 100, and how numbers that are multiplied by 10 link to numbers multiplied by 100 as well.
This week in RE we thought about Hindu’s and their daily prayer rituals. We thought about the Puja tray, all of its different components and their significance. Can you explain any of the things on a Puja tray to your grown up?
In our topic work, we have found out about the location of Iceland and used geographical vocabulary to describe this eg.in the Northern hemisphere, Iceland is to the North West of the UK and part of the continent of Europe. Next week we will be learning about the physical geography of the county which will explain why it is often known as the land of ice and fire!
