Reading Maths Writing

In reading, we are reading Cogheart by Peter Bunzl. After we have read each chapter, we are practising our comprehension skills by developing our retrieval, inference and summarising skills, in particular, this term. We will also be looking at how vocabulary choice affects meaning and how the choice can show how effective a writer the author is.

In maths, we are developing our understanding of place value and the four rules. We have mastered addition, subtraction and multiplication and we are now focussing on division over the next few weeks before looking at fractions before Christmas.

 

In order to solve multiplication and division calculations more fluently, keep practising your times tables on TT Rockstars.

In writing, we are currently working on writing a diary entry from the point of view of Lilly, one of the main characters in Cogheart.

 

We are looking at some specific writing skills such as main and subordinate clauses. We will then look in depth at subordinate clauses, learning about embedded and relative clauses.
