We have had another brilliant week in Seals class! It has involved feature finding, fractions and food tasting!
This week, we started our new writing unit, non-chronological reports. So far it has involved exploring a variety of non-chronological reports, finding structural and language features used in our example non-chronological report and writing sentences which use parenthesis.
We have continued our fractions work this week which has included partitioning a mixed number, representing mixed numbers on a number line, comparing mixed numbers, ordering mixed numbers and understanding improper fractions.
Iceland Day –
On Tuesday, we dedicated the day to Geography, learning more about the wonderful country of Iceland. To kickstart the day, children shared the fun facts they had found for their homework. We then looked at the history of Iceland. Each group produced a timeline for a period of history and we then put these together to create one big timeline of historical events in Iceland. After this, the children learnt about the myths and legends that Icelandic people believe in. The children produced comic strips or used drama to recreate once of the myths/legends we had spoken about. The next part of the day involved food tasting, which in this case was some Icelandic yoghurt! To round off our ‘Iceland Day’, the children used chalk to produce a piece of Northern Lights artwork! I hope that the children all enjoyed the day 😊
Children have been given some Maths homework this week. The task has been explained in class, but if you have any questions about this, please do get in touch.
