What a busy and exciting first week back!
In maths, we have continued with our multiplication and division work. At the start of the week, we were learning to recognise and make arrays. These can help us to recognise and make multiplication sentences.
Show someone at home what to do. Complete the sentence to describe the arrays shown below:
Now can you make your own arrays using these multiplication sentences?
We have started to look at 'division' this week. We have been doing this through 'grouping'. We have been putting items into equal groups and calculating how many groups we have made. We then used this information to write a division sentence. Have a go at the example below:
We have been using this method to solve worded problems. Try these below:
This week it has been 'World Book Week'. We have done lots of exciting and creative activities around our class book: Mac B. Kid Spy. We planned and wrote our own descriptive posters about the missing crown jewels! On Thursday, we all dressed as a 'word'. We created our own 'book of words' as we found new words around the classroom to draw and write about. We also reviewed our own books from home!
Take a look at our pictures below:
In topic, we have been exploring why the Great Barrier Reef is important and how pollution affects it. Can you tell someone at home a fact you learnt about the Great Barrier Reef? Why is it important to look after it?
