Week Ending: Friday 22.09.17

In English:  This week we have been learning about dilemmas. The children have looked at the dilemma in ‘The Stone Age Boy’ and they have then written their own dilemma using descriptive language.
Next week:  We will be looking at a range of sentence structures.

In Maths: The children worked on doubling and halving. We found our answers by partitioning the numbers and using our prior knowledge of doubles and halves.
Next week:  The children will be looking at written methods for addition.

 Also this week: This week we have looked at the suffixes ed and ing. The children also used timelines to order events in History. We were able to see when the Stone Age happened and the children were introduced to BC and AD.
