Walnut Class Term 1 Week 5

We have had a busy week of learning this week.

In reading, we have been exploring the meaning of words in context. We have read extracts of texts and a book linked to our IPC learning. We have been discussing what words mean by sharing our understanding and how we can work out meanings by reading the whole sentence and thinking about what we have read.

This week in Literacy, we have been focusing on different biographies of famous people and what their major achievements were. To do this we have used iPads to research a famous person of our choices. We created amazing biographies and used our editing skills to improve the grammar and vocabulary in our writing.

In Maths, we have continued to add and subtract numbers up to 1000, using formal written methods.

In Science, we concluded our scientific enquiry by recording and presenting our results of how the digestive system works. We drew diagrams of the digestive system and labelled it. We wrote what the functions of the different parts of the digestive system are.

In Art, we completed our cave painting and displayed it in class, which we are all very proud of.

In our topic learning, we looked at the local area to understand geographical similarities and differences through the study of human and physical geography. We looked at pictures of Stone Age settlements and created and labelled our own settings. We also discussed trade; what was traded, how people travelled to trade their products, the transport that was used and the materials used for the transport vehicles. The children were fascinated to discover some of the similarities and some of the differences between the Stone Age and today.
