This week in maths, Team JF have started exploring fractions! We initially centered our learning around what is a fraction? Here we were able to become familiar with how fractions are formed and the role of the numerator and denominator. From this, we progressed into unit/non unit fractions, identifying the difference between them.
Finally, we identified fractions on a number line and took on the challenging task of those fractions beyond 1 whole.
These were testing tasks, however, the children demonstrated great resilience and a fantastic 'can do' attitude towards their learning.
In literacy this week, Team JF watched a clip of an amazing discovery archaeologists had unearthed from the Bronze Age. After much discussion we believed this finding was incredibly important and that many more people should be made aware. From this we began thinking of how we could report these findings to others and decided on writing our own newspaper reports.
As we had established our purpose for writing, we then moved into analysing a variety of newspaper reports in order to pick out the key features. We finished off the week by focusing on headlines with the children picking out an image to create their own.
