This Week's Learning



This week we have started to learn the tale of fear story Zelda Claw. We started by 'story mapping' the story and learnt actions to help us recall the text. Can you practise recalling the story using the story map below:


Also this week, we learnt how to use commas to separate clauses, in lists, in expanded noun phrases and after fronted adverbials. We also learnt how to use speech to show character's thoughts whilst learning how to punctuate speech correctly. Furthermore, we learnt how to add more detail to nouns using ambitious vocabulary in expanded noun phrases.


Teaching of Reading

In our Teaching of Reading lessons, we read more of the book 'There's A Boy In The Girls' Bathroom'. We explored the impact of language and discussed how author's use particular words or phrases to have an impact on the reader. We also explored character's motives and inferred their reasons for their actions.



In maths this week, we continued to learn more about place value and focused our learning on rounding and negative numbers.

Can you try and solve the complex negative problem that we found difficult this week?

We finished the week by revisiting our Place Value elicitation task to show how our learning progressed, and completed another elicitation task on the four operations.
