What are we learning?

Friday 22nd September 2023

 In English, we have completed writing our own Greek myths. The children really enjoyed making up their own heroes/heroines, mythical creatures and the quests that they had to complete. The children have had the opportunity to type up their Greek myths onto iPads.

In Maths, we have continued our work with place value, looking at the number line to 10,000 and finding the missing values along the number lines.

In Art, we have begun making our clay pots! Here are some pictures from the week:

This week, we have been looking at features of a Greek myth. We have discussed how Greek myths typically have a god/goddess, magical creatures, and teach us moral lessons. We have begun writing our own Greek myths.

In Maths, we are continuing our work on place value. We have been using place value mats to help us partition numbers to 10,000.

In Science, our topic for this half-term is Sound. Here are some pictures from our first practical:

In English this week, we have started reading our class book, ‘Who let the Gods out?’ We began by focusing on the front cover of the book and discussed the different characters that were displayed and who they might be. Elliot, the main character, has the worries of the world on his shoulder… Will the Greek gods and goddesses be able to help him? The children have made some really thoughtful predictions about how the other characters in the book will help Elliot.

In Maths, we have been learning to represent numbers to 1000 and also partition numbers to 1000. We also moved a step further to identify numbers on a number line and estimate missing values on a number line. The children have been working really hard to ensure the presentation in their maths book is neat and tidy!

In Art, we have started to design our Greek vases, with a twist of our own modern patterns and designs.
