Our targets this term are:
Reading: To use evidence from the text to support my answers.
Maths: To recall the multiplication and related division facts for the 11 and 12 times tables.
Writing: To correct spell high frequency and keywords correctly in my writing.
With all of our special attention on amazing vocabulary this year, we have been setting the scene for our protagonists in the class reader ‘Run Wild’. We hope you like our amazing descriptions. We feel we are just getting better and better in our writing.
As part of our topic work on our blue planet and pollution, we have created adverts to persuade others about how to avoid the terrible consequences of plastic pollution on our oceans. We hope they make you think about our environment and our duty to protect it.
Collaborative Cats in Action
These children have been working collaboratively to create a descriptive piece of writing, inspired by the text Run Wild, by Gill Lewis! Being collaborative cats helps us achieve more!
As part of our topic, we have been learning to classify animals into vertebrates and invertebrates and to also use our knowledge to place different creatures into their classifications – birds, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, fish and insects – it was a lot of fun and very informative.
We used all our learning to make logic trees for all creatures great and small. We hope you like them.
We have also worked on our beautiful oceans and the terrible long effects of plastic pollution. This affects habitats, animals and us in many terrible ways and we have been reflecting on this and what we can do to be part of the solution.
The Blue Planet
Justice Class are delighted to return to school and start our new topic ‘The Blue Planet’. We have been investigating the oceans and their impact on the environment and peoples’ lives. We have also been very concerned about the pollution of the oceans and have been researching different types of plastic. Our display board reflects some of our initial thoughts and concerns.
Our class reader for this term is ‘Run Wild’ by Gill Lewis. Can Izzy and Asha help an injured wolf? It is a stunning tale of our lost connection with nature and we can’t wait to read more.
This term we are looking at our four calculations – we have jumped into problem-solving using addition!
