Welcome back! I hope you all had a lovely break.
Team CB have settled back into learning really well and have had a busy week of learning.
In our Maths, we have moved on to our new unit of subtraction. The class started the week investigating what subtraction was and what language we knew which related to this. We then used the Manipulatives App to help gain an understanding of subtraction and how this happens. We explored regrouping and the need to exchange when the bottom digit is greater than the top. From this, we moved into applying our visual understanding into showing this in the form of formal written methods. I was most impressed with how quickly the class picked up this skill. We will be working on subtraction in to next week also, but the class have already made promising strides in their learning, and I have every belief that they will go on to being super subtraction solvers!
Elsewhere, in Literacy this week we have been visiting Italy as part of our learning. On Monday, the class followed verbal instructions to make an authentic Italian pizza. From this, we developed our focus for the week's writing - instructions. The class have worked hard to identify different features of instructions, as well as explore imperative verbs and adverbs. They have carefully planned the way instructions should be presented and have sequenced images to support in recalling the steps to baking a delicious pizza. Next week the children will conclude their instructions writing, when they write up in best their interpretation and provide these to Year 5 as an example of good instructions writing, before Year 5 create their own later this half term.
In Science, we have concluded our learning around states of matter and will be moving on to our new unit of electricity as of next week. The class are already really excited about this as they know that they are going to be making their own fully-functioning torches! I can't wait to see the end result.
Enjoy a restful weekend! Check back next week for further updates.
