Week 4

This week it has certainly felt like Autumn, however we have managed to get outside as much as possible. 


For English we have been writing our own version of "The pebble in my pocket" including a variety of prepositions, verbs and adjectives. We finished the week by publishing these ready for our writing wall. Before we wrote them up in neat we did some hand, arm and shoulder exercises to get our bodies ready.


In Maths we have been continuing to look at place value by rounding numbers to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000 as well as comparing number using the more than and less than symbols. In arithmetic this week, we recapped different methods for multiplying and will continue with this next week. 


Our Quest journey took us inside a volcano this week where were learnt how volcanoes are formed as well as the different parts of a volcano. We have then moved on to looking at the 3 classifications of rocks: sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic. Eagle class became geologists where they went exploring in our glade for different rocks to classify. 


In French we have been learning how to say goodbye both formally and informally. See below for the learning that we have completed with Mrs Akhurst in our computing lesson.


Next week we look forward to our visitors coming into school where we will be further looking at different rock types as well as fossils. 

To begin our Computing project based on Volcanoes, we looked at uploading images, resizing them and choosing an order. We will be using these as our backgrounds next week.
