A very busy (and very warm!) week! 


In maths, we have continued with our measurement work. We started the week by measuring items on weighing scales. We learnt about measuring in 'grams'. We made estimates based on our knowledge of previous items we had weighed. We also learnt to read measurements on weighing scales that measure in 1s, 2s, 5s and 10s. Later in the week, we learnt about 'kilograms'. Can you tell someone at home how many grams are in 1kg? We then looked at objects and decided if we would measure them in 'grams' or 'kilograms'. Have a go at the picture below:


On Friday, we used our four operations in maths (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) to solve mathematical problems involving measurement (grams and kilograms). 


In English, we have been recapping our learning on 'past tense' and 'first person'. Show someone at home what you can do:


Rewrite the sentences so they are in the first person.

E.g. Henry played with his dinosaur in his bedroom.

I played with my dinosaur in my bedroom.


1. Tom went to his maths lesson.


2. ‘’Don’t forget the chocolate!’’ Tilly shouted to her Dad.


We have also innovated our letter and rewrote the introduction by including something we have done e.g. going to Alton Towers, going on holiday, going camping. Can you remember what you wrote about?


In science, we have started our new unit of work: Animals and humans. We started the unit off by thinking about the basic needs of an animal and humans. Can you remember the three things all living things need to survive? We then wrote some instructions on how to look after a pet. We then looked at animal offspring. Can you remember the name of the offspring for these animals: horse, duck, sheep, goat? Finally, we looked at the life cycle of humans. Using these keywords, can you name the life cycle of a human: adult, elderly, teenager, baby, child:
