What great writers we are!

In this section...

We are now experts at question and exclamation sentences!

How many words do we use to start questions? There are lots and we were asking and writing down lots of questions this week. We then looked at exclamation sentences too. They start with what or how and we used the ones we know from fairytales first (What big eyes you have! How hot this porridge is!) to practise them and then came up with our own for Traction Man and Scrubbing Brush. What an embarrased face he had! How filthy Scrubbing Brush was!

In Maths this week, we were looking at part-whole models and finding ways to partition numbers into tens and ones. We also became experts in using a tens and ones grid to represent different numbers and revised all our learning so far to ensure we hadn't forgotten anything yet!

In Science, we have been exploring which materials can be stretched, bent, squashed and twisted and looked at some objects that had been zoomed into. We thought about the materials' properties to try and work out what it was as we slowly zoomed out. We also tested which paper is the strongest. We made predictions about what we thought would happen and why and then slowly attached weights to the paper to see how easily (or not!) it would rip. We were surprised that sugar paper wasn't as strong as card because it felt as thick as the card.

I was really pleased to see so many Super Readers this week! Well done and keep it up! 

Have a fabulous weekend!
