W/C 18th September 2017
In English, our focus has been fronted adverbials and how to use them in our writing. We looked at fronted adverbials of time and how they can make our writing more interesting by starting our sentences in different ways. We then used these to help us write a diary about a day in the Stone Age.
In Maths, we continued to look at place value for 3-digit numbers and comparing them. We then looked at different ways to partition 3-digit numbers and answered word problems using our place value knowledge.
During our Topic lessons, we looked at different Stone Age tools. We looked at different artefacts and put on our archaeologist hats to look at the clues to decide what the artefacts could have been used for.
For science we looked at sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks and how we can identify them. We then used chocolate to help us identify and describe these rocks. It was a very memorable lesson!
In PE we continued to develop and improve our catching and throwing skills by thinking about making a target with our hands for our partner to throw to.
