A shorter week this week but Chestnut class have been busy and working hard!
In maths we have continued with our topic of multiplication and division. This week we have been looking at arrays
and the link with repeated addition and/or multiplication. The children have used various mathematical equipment
and objects from around the room to demonstrate their understanding. Next week we will look at methods of
dividing; sharing and grouping, and linking it with what we know about with multiplication.
In English the children had the opportunity for a piece of writing about Barker the dog. Using skills they had learnt;
to construct sentences, include appropriate punctuation, and expanded noun phrases, the children wrote a short report of what Barker had been up to but how he was a hero in the end.
In science, we have been looking at both wild and garden flowers, noting the similarities and differences. The children then produced beautiful watercolour paintings of the flowers. The beans are growing; some more than others. They are being watered and measured. For some some reassuring words to help good growth!
it has been lovely to see how the children have settled into routines and working so hard in their learning.
