Knowing our way around in Kensuke’s Kingdom

November 29, 2019

This week we have really challenged ourselves with our learning!

In Maths, we continued column addition with regrouping and started thinking about the most efficient strategies to solve addition equations.

In English, we started focusing on the book Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. However, halfway through this exciting adventure story, we found a missing part of the book so we have become authors, trying to reconstruct what happened.  We have been learning about the features of a map and how to find our way around using coordinates.

In Science, we have been exploring magnets and their properties.

In Art, we have been making characters to go on a journey, similar to the journey of some of the characters in the books we have read.

Next week:

Family Friday on Friday 6th from 8.35-9.00 AM. We look forward to sharing our learning with you.
