This week in Maths we've been focusing on the question "What can I identify about a number" This has lead us to lots of place value investigations. We've used dienes and hundred squares and shown different representations of numbers using bead-strings and money.
In English we've started to dig deeper into the features of a fairy - tale. This week we have been exploring the setting of fairy - tales and building vocabulary to describe the setting of Little Red Riding Hood. Some pupils decided to describe the bunny park that Little Red Riding Hood wanted to venture into and others described the more menacing aspect of the woods.
Within our theme learning we have been thinking about the Italian connection of Guy Fawkes and how he had an Italian nickname. Pupils have been learning about the historical event of Bonfire Night and why we celebrate this. We've retold the story and been exploring the essential question "How can a person's actions impact the future?"
