What another busy week! The children had a few mid-term assessments this week and worked so hard! We definitely learned to read the questions carefully but the children have demonstrated their learning well :) Well done!
We have started learning about Great Yarmouth's tourism history and were amazed at how old some of the buildings and attractions really were after we tried to put them in time order! We also put ourselves in a tourists shoes, writing a postcard as someone from 100 years ago who had never been to the seaside before. We were shocked that men and women couldn't bathe on the beach together as it wasn't seen as appropriate!
This week we have been learning about division and odd and even numbers. We investigated which numbers could be split equally between two groups, spotted a pattern and made a rule. We now know that even numbers are numbers which can be split equally between two groups and the ones digit will always end in a 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8. An odd number cannot be shared equally between two groups and the ones digit will always end in a 1, 3, 5, 7, or 9.
If you would like to bring in your favourite poem on Tuesday, we are looking at different 'sense' poems next week. I love poetry and think it can be a lot of fun, uses great vocabulary and love how it makes me feel! We will be aiming to write to entertain people with our poems too! The secret word is onomatopoeia!
I look forward to seeing you all next week for parents' evening, any questions, just ask!
