English

Following our trip to Marwell Zoo the children have written lots of descriptive pieces about different animals and a recount of their trip.

We have read Handa’s Hen and written our own counting sentences using a the simple three word format: number/adjective/noun e.g. one fat hippo, two tall giraffes, three climbing monkeys….

Maths

During week one we looked at the fractions half and quarter. We had to remember the very important fact that each part had to be equal especially if we share cake or chocolate!

This week we have been using addition partition facts e.g. 5+2=7, 3+4=7 and then using these facts to write subtraction sentences i.e if 2+5=7 then 7-2=5 and 7-5=2. We have done this practically and then recorded.
