We have had another great week in our learning this week and we have started work on our Christmas nativity this week!
In our English learning this week, we have been learning a story by Steve Antony called "The Queen's Hat". In this story, the Queen loses her hat and she has to travel all around London in search of the hat. We have turned the text into a recount and made the story into a newspaper article to make it even more exciting! We have been learning the text through story mapping the recount and through sequencing the story map. We also learnt actions to go with the text. Here is our text that we have been learning. Can you tell a grown up about the different London landmarks that the Queen goes to retrieve her hat? Maybe you could draw a story map of the model text?
In Maths this week, we have been looking at number bonds. Number bonds are two numbers that add to make another number. We learnt how to systematically find number bonds to a number. Being systematic is when we go in order. Here is an example of finding number bonds systematically. Can you write all the number bonds to 6? How many are there?
We also looked at number bonds to 10 and how number bonds to 10 come in pairs. We learnt it using a song to the tune of "I can see a rainbow".
"10 and 0 and 9 and 1. 8 and 2 make 10. 7 and 3, 6 and 4, 5 and 5 make ten."
Can you write down all the number bonds to 10? Or create your own song to find all the number bonds to 10?
In Topic this week, we are finishing our work on Oi! Get off our train! by looking at trains itself and how the steam train was invented. We looked into the life of George Stephenson, the "Father of Railways" and how he came to invent the steam train. We created story maps of his life and wrote about how people at the time felt about his steam trains.
This week, I awarded a PRIDE certificate and 2 leaves this week. Who will it be next week?
A great week Hedgehogs, 3 more weeks till we finish this term!
