We have been enjoying continuing with our Learning Theme: The Variety of Life.
In English, we have invented our own animal species, planned details about our animal using expanded noun phrases, varied pronouns and scientific words for classification. We used our plans to write non-chronological reports about our invented animal species, making sure they were organised in sections using paragraphs and sub-headings.
In Maths, we have continued learning about place value for four-digit numbers. We have learned how to compare numbers up to 10,000 and place them on a number line.
In Science, we have learned how to classify animals using classification keys. We sorted animals and identified them using classification keys. Then we created our own classification keys for animals to sort and identify them, by creating our own questions using the characteristics of the animals.
In PSHE, we have learned about unhelpful thoughts and thinking styles and the different parts of the brain. We sorted scenarios into different unhelpful thinking styles and learned how to re-frame out thoughts into more helpful thinking styles.
