Reading Maths Writing

We are reading The Explorer by Katherine Rundell at the moment. We are also looking at non-fiction texts such as "Planet Earth: as you've never seen it before" and other selected texts in order to develop our knowledge of text types. We are practising our ability to make and justify inferences while using the text to evidence our written and spoken answers. Just giving an answer is not enough at Eaves - we must explain how and why we know it to show Excellence in Everything!

In maths, we have looked at geometry in more detail, exploring angles and shape. Over the next few weeks, we will look into reflection and translation before re-visiting addition, subtraction, multiplication and division in more detail including decimals and multi-step word problems. 

 

In order to solve multiplication and division calculations more fluently, keep practising your times tables on TT Rockstars. We, as a school, are currently #1 in the local area!

In writing, we are currently working on non-fiction writing about rainforests. By writing a non-chronological report, we can inform our readers of the facts about the habitat. While we are exploring the effects of deforestation and other environmental challenges on the rainforest, we will develop our persuasive writing in order to share a point of view.

 

We are re-visiting our work on clauses from Autumn term, learning about embedded and relative clauses and how to apply them to our writing consistently.
