Our Learning Last Week

Week Commencing 10th June 2024


Guided Reading

This term's guided reading focuses on the Victorians. We will be studying a variety of texts linked to this topic including non-fiction, poetry and fiction. This week we have been reading a non-fiction text about the Victorian era and learning what life was like as a Victorian child. We have used our skills of scanning the text to find key vocab which will help us have a deeper understanding of the text, information retrieval skills to answer questions, and we made comparisons between what we had read and our own experiences of life.



We have begun a new writing unit focusing on explanation texts this week. The children have been asked to write an explanation text about the Ancient Mayan game pok-a-tok. They have analysed the example text to create a list of writing skills they will need to ensure they produce a good piece of writing, they have written instructions for how to play pok-a-tok to ensure they had a good understanding of the game and they have drawn together their own knowledge of the game from their topic lessons as well as doing some additional research online so that they are able to create a plan for their writing next week.



This week we have finished a unit on decimals, where the children used everything they have learnt in this unit to answer a variety of questions efficiently. They also completed the end of unit assessment before moving on to our next unit, negative numbers. The children have whizzed through this topic, completing work on understanding negative numbers and counting through zero in both ones and multiples. 

This term's Christian value

This term's Christian value is justice. We will be exploring this topic throughout our collective worship this term, as well as discussing in class what is meant by justice and what justice looks like in our every day life.
