This week in literacy we started a new unit on different stories by the same author. We will be focusing on Julia Donaldson books over the next few weeks. We read ‘Room on the Broom’ and acted out an alternate ending. We also created story boards of the key parts of the story. Over the next few weeks we will be comparing Julia Donaldson books and writing our own versions of the stories!
This week in maths we have worked on our mental addition and subtraction. We counted back, counted on or partitioned the numbers to subtract. Mental subtraction can be quite difficult so please continue to practice this as much as possible at home.
This week in topic we looked at how long ago dinosaurs lived. We learnt that there were 3 time periods of the dinosaurs; Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. We used the ipads to research dinosaurs and create a timeline of when they were alive.
Well done Oliver and Mia who have their tops and to Vesta who has her certificate.
Molly and Monty had a great time with Grace and Amos. They solved lots of time problems and practiced adding! Molly and Monty have gone home with Noah and Rose this weekend.
