Welcome back to the new year! The children have already been working extremely hard already this year. It was fantastic to see all the research conducted over the summer, especially those who created presentations to show the class!
We have been looking at all the interesting facts about the Maya this week and are in the process of writing a non-chronological report. We have been looking at using sub-headings, paragraphs, complex sentences and adding the author's voice. So far I have been very impressed with what has been produced and I am keen to see the finished products.
In Maths we have been focusing on place value, looking specifically at 5 digit numbers. We have since moved onto Roman Numerals and the children have seemed to love it, their understanding has been excellent with most children able to understand and write numbers up to 1000 in Roman numerals.
A quick reminder to anybody who has not sent their permission slips back for the two events which are happening on Friday, please can we have them back ASAP as they are obviously needed before the event.
Homework this week will be focusing on Roman numerals and writing their own non-chronological report.
