We have enjoyed reading about Sir Francis Drake and considering his role as a pirate. This has led on to other research about exploration and life on board sailing ships in these times. The children have started to write their own adventure stories, with a focus on using paragraphs correctly to provide a good structure. Our revision of synonyms and the use of fronted adverbials have brought our descriptions to life, and the openers used aim to capture the interest of our readers.
Our work in maths has been based around measures, starting with estimating and measuring the capacity of different containers, and then moving on to explore and solve different word problems. We have now returned to the topic of time, using AM and PM correctly, as well as learning how the 24 hour clock is used on train and bus timetables. We are moving on to calculating intervals of time, with a focus on showing our working out.
We hope that you are all enjoying the lovely sunshine and hope that it continues for our pirate camp later this week! Arrr!
