Autumn Term 1 Week 2 - 17th September

This week, we have continued to write our stories based on 'The Stone Age Boy'. We have continued to practise using adverbs while also including similes, repetition and onomatopoeia. 

In maths, we have been adding and subtracting 1s, 10s and 100s while continuing to build our confidence with place value. We have also begun to learn our three times table. 

In history this week, we have written some fantastic diary entries as Stone Age children. We have written about what life was like living in caves, and hunting and gathering to get food.

In science, we applied the knowledge we gained last week to complete a 'Which is best?' investigation, controlling variables to ensure it was a fair test. We used Newton meters to measure the force required to move a shoe along different surfaces.

Autumn Term 1 Week 1 - 10th September

We have had a busy first week back at school this week! In English, we have started writing a story about a boy who falls and ends up in a strange place. We have been using 'The Stone Age Boy' as inspiration for our writing and have so far used many features to make our writing amazing including: direct speech, adverbs and prepositions. 

In maths, we have been working on developing our place value knowledge with numbers all the way up to 1,000. We have also been practising our 5 times tables.

In our topic work this week, we have begun learning about the Stong Age in history, completed some pattern-finding investigations in science (where we found out smooth, shiny surfaces had the least friction) and tried our first French lesson!
