P4 – Week 16/11/20

Some highlights from the week.

Developing our knowledge of alphabetical order to, or past, the 2nd letter and using a dictionary to find words.

Whole class reading of our novel “Ottoline and the Yellow Cat”. We read chapters 6 & 7. The e-book can be accessed via your Active Learn log in.

Maths & Numeracy

Adding groups of tens to a 2 digit number with a missing number, e.g. 32 + __ = 72.

Practising our 2, 5 and 3 times tables.

Partitioning larger numbers, e.g. 527 = 500 + 20 + 7. This has helped develop our knowledge of number.

Other areas

Topic – The Jacobite’s and their defeat at The Battle of Culloden. We created our own unique battle pictures.

Art – Continuing drawing realistic people. We began to draw a scene by blocking and sketching people into different positions. It is a work in progress but it will help us learn how detailed pictures are created.
