In English, we have been reading ‘Leon and the Place Between’. It is an amazing book about a circus, but we don’t know what is going to happen yet…!
We looked at the golden tent picture in the book, and described it with lots of powerful adjectives, such as: shiny, impeccable, glamourous, pearlescent, grimy and glossy.
We have also been learning about clauses and ways to join them using subordinating and coordinating conjunctions (FANBOYS). We looked in the story to see what different types of sentences the author has used.
We have been learning about what the value is of each digit in a 3 digit number. We have used place value columns and Dienes equipment to show the value, like this:
||= 364 (Three hundred and sixty four)
We have had two PE sessions this week, one with Mr Aplin, and one with Mrs. Barlow, where we were practising hurdles of different heights and challenging ourselves to jump higher.
We haven’t done much topic learning yet, but we have been reading ‘Around the World in 80 Days’ and tracking Phileas Fogg’s travels around the world on our world map. We now know where Africa, Europe and India are!
We have been writing about helpful and unhelpful talk. We have also been discussing our ambitions and what jobs we would like to do when we grow up. We had to think carefully about what skills we needed to learn, and what type of person we need to be in order to achieve our ambitions.
On Tuesday we had our first French lesson with Mrs. Dark. Now we know how to answer the register in French!
We are very excited about starting violins and cellos on Tuesday next week!
What a fantastic first week back! I hope you have a restful weekend, and come back refreshed on Monday for another busy week!
