Another super week of learning! Well done, Owls.
In maths, we have been using pictures to help us write multiplication sentences. Show someone at home what you can do:
We have also been using arrays to help us write multiplication sentences. Can you show someone at home which way we look when we are looking at the 'rows'? Which way do we look when we are counting the 'columns'? Look at the example below to help you...
This array has 5 rows with 3 counters in each. Therefore, the multiplication sentence is 5 x 3.
Can you tell someone at home what the multiplication sentence would be if you were looking at the columns? What do you notice about your two calculations? What's the same and what is different?
Now try these:
In English, we have been boxing up our model text, The Koala and the Crocodile. Our model text has five sections:
1. Introduction - Who is the main character? Where do they live? What have they been warned not to do?
2. Build up - The main character decides to do what they have been warned not to do.
3. Problem - The main character is in trouble and needs saving.
4. Resolution - The main character is saved.
5. Ending - The main character is in trouble.
Using these sections, can you tell someone at home what happens in each part of our story?
This week, we have also innovated our model text. We each chose two new main characters. Tell someone at home who your new main characters were. What were they warned not to do?
Next week, we will be writing our own warning tale.
In topic, we have been learning about the 7 continents and 5 oceans of the world. Can you tell someone at home what they are? We have really enjoyed singing along to these songs to help us remember:
Can you tell someone about our journey to Australia? Which continents did we fly over?
Have a great weekend, Owls!
