This week we have continued our writing based on The True Story of the Three Little Pigs by Jon Scieszka. We have thought about how we can use questions in our writing to keep the reader interested and we have also been practising how to use inverted commas for dialogue.
We have been focusing on Place Value in our maths lessons so far this year and have learnt more about 3-digit numbers. This week, we have been adding and subtracting 1, 10 or 100 from 3-digit numbers and we have used the greater/less than symbols to compare numbers. On Friday we played a maths-version of the game ‘Connect 4’ to help us revise our learning so far.
In our History lesson, we learnt about how people in the Stone Age found their food. We learnt about hunting techniques, how they made weapons as well as the things that they were able to gather. We found out lots of interesting and surprising facts, such as the glue they used was made from resin, beeswax and charcoal. The children made fantastic fact files about Stone Age Hunter-Gatherers.
On Friday morning we celebrated the Harvest Festival. We talked about what Harvest means to us and how Christians celebrate Harvest. We then created some Harvest artwork, inspired by the fruit and vegetables that are gathered. We drew cross-sections of different fruits and then painted them using water colours.
