In English we have been looking at using adjectives to describe. We have started to understand that an adjective, coupled with a noun is called an expanded noun phrase (big, blue butterfly) and have been trying to write our own. We will be starting the latest Scratchy Rabbit challenge next week and using noun phrases to help add detail and interest to our writing.
We have been looking at partitioning two digit numbers in various ways this week. We have used the part whole model and classroom resources to support our learning. Children are starting to understand that 2-digit numbers can be partitioned into various way (24 – 20 + 4, 10 + 14) and we will be looking at writing number sentences to support what we know. Any extra work on partitining would be really useful for the children going into next week.
We started our science topic on materials this week. We were looking at natural materials in Forest school and focused on the difference between man made and natural materials in the classroom. Children have been encouraged to describe the properties of materials and there are some really useful games on purple mash to support children’s understanding if you would like to have a go at home.
Spelling investigations went home home today and don’t forget to be starting to look at some of the homework tasks on the homework menu.
Have a lovely weekend,
