During our lessons we have focused heavily on the times tables, learning tricks to work out multiples of numbers and applying our knowledge to reasoning questions.
We have continued producing our piece of atmospheric writing, using techniques identified in similar examples and a video stimulus to generate our ideas. Our writing is full of fronted adverbial phrases, expanded noun phrases and suspense. We hope our intended audience enjoy reading our published pieces.
A huge well done to all Team LG for their effort and commitment during assessment week. I am very proud of each and everyone of you!
During our lessons this week we have consolidated our knowledge of column subtraction, focusing on questions that contain two five digit numbers, questions that contain a five digit number subtract a four digit number and questions based on decimals. As we had remembered all tips given to us before the holidays we were super speedy. So, we were able to quickly move on to subtracting across zeros. This is something we have found a little more challenging. However, we are persistent and we will master it!
We have started our new writing unit based on atmospheric writing. We watched a video called 'Dracula's Whitby', which took us on a computerised tour of the abbey. This is our hook and stimulus for writing and we can not wait! We have analysed the text features of atmospheric writing (simple and complex sentences, expanded noun phrases and imagery). On Wednesday and Thursday, we focused on identifying main and subordinate clauses, part of the build up to simple and complex sentences which we are looking at next week.
