In English this week we have started sentence stacking a disaster story. We have based our writing on the book Flood by Alvaro F. Villa; this is a wordless picture book and it has been exciting to put our own story to the illustrations. We have focused on building up the tension as a storm begins and have really worked on using a thesaurus to find lots of powerful and dramatic adjectives to describe the storm.
This week in maths we have started a new unit on Statistics. We have learnt how to interpret pictograms and bar charts, as well as drawing them based on the data we collected as a class. We have used scales of 2, 5 and 10. Next week we will focus more on data represented in tables.
Our play rehearsals are in full swing! We have now had a full read through of the script and I have been really impressed with the effort the children are putting into their performances! We have also been working hard at practising the songs and these are already sounding great!
This week’s spellings have been set on Spelling Shed; we will have a short test next Tuesday.
Spelling Rule: The /l/ sound spelled ‘-al’ at the end of words.
