Unit of Inquiry - Where we are in Place and Time
Our central idea for this unit is:
Migration can impact on people and society
This week we have been continuing our UOI arts rotations. The children have been exploring the stages of migration through the following art forms: drama, sculpture, music & dance.
The children are starting to get excited about sharing their learning with you on our sharing day!
Mr Pheasant's group: This week we have been using different methods (traditional, window, lattice and breaking part) to solve multiplication problems involving 2 digit numbers.
Mrs Angell's group: This week we used compatible pairs and place value to multiply 2 and 3 digit numbers.
Mr Dray's group: This week we looked for maths in a real world setting and began multiplication mental strategies.
Ms Burley's group: This week we explored the Napier's bones strips and worked out how to use them to solve multiplication problems. You can review this at home with your child; http://nrich.maths.org/1132
Homework this week
This week's homework:
This week in class we have been focusing on proof reading and self editing our writing. This is something the children have found challenging. The homework this week will practice these skills. Please complete the activity based on a descriptive text passage about the beach.
Please remember to keep uploading content into your Wevideo account. Those children who did not do this last week had issues keeping up with the rest of the class in their ICT lesson.
