I hope you are well.
We have been continuing our science and our English by learning about sound and writing about sound. This week, we learnt about frequency and pitch and how they are related. The children investigated sounds and learnt that they can hear sounds with a higher frequency than I can. We are going to start some independent writing in English next week about our sounds learning. We will produce two pages in a similar way to the Marvin and Milo book.
In maths, we are continuing our learning about times and divide. We have focused a lot on looking at real-world problems using times and divide. We have been helping the children to understand which is a times problem and which is a divide problem. You will see some sheets coming home for times table practice. If you can't log on to TTRS at home, please do let me know and I can send a sheet home. The aim is to have completed the 10, 2, 5, 3, 4 and 8 times tables by the end of this year and to be fluent with those facts. I think they are so helpful for life in school but also for well beyond school. Next week, we will start looking at multiplying a two-digit number by a one-digit number.
In computing, we are looking at desktop publishing. We are going to use our learning about laws to make a poster for a new law that the children think is very important. I'm hoping that we can send them to our local MP when they are done.
The spellings for this week are: television, telephone, telescope, submarine, subsoil and submerge.
Hope you have a great week.
