This morning our maths meeting was led by Calum. Calum imitated the teacher to deliver a great session. He was amazing at supporting the younger children too.
After that we practiced some maths mastery style questions. There was great reasoning by all.
This morning we explored feelings. How do certain feelings look? What makes us have those feelings?
We then did some drama, we acted out a scene from the Famous Five book (Five go to Treasure Island). We had to use these expressions to show the emotions the characters were feeling throughout the scene.
We really impressed Miss Astle and Miss Wogan with our understanding of place value. We could talk about what each number meant and say which element was the biggest.
This morning we used an inference circle to sort out facts we knew about Kirrin Island (the inner circle) compared to things we can infer (the second circle. We realised that we were really good at using our past experiences to help us think shot what an island looks like and also using clues in the text.
Not only were we fab at this but we were also amazing collaborators working within our team to find the information
Last week we look at what we’d been doing over the summer but we wanted to find out more.
We wanted to know what the most popular activity was during the Summer holidays. After much pondering we remembered we could use a tally and a bar chart.
Here we are recapping how to draw a tally and a bar chart.
This morning we started reading about the famous five and their adventures to Kirrin island. We noticed the author used lots of great adjectives to describe the characters but had to use clues to figure out why this told us about their personalities.
We started off by predicting what the book was about.
