Numeracy and Literacy this week

admin on: This week in Elms

This week in numeracy we have been learning about rounding numbers to the nearest 10. We learnt about how if the digit in the ones column is a 1,2,3 or 4 we round numbers down to the previous 10 . We also learnt that if the digit in the ones column is a 5,6,7,8 or a 9 we round the number to the next 10.  

In literacy we have been focusing our writing on the story 'Voices in the Park'. We planned and wrote our own story based on the 3rd voices in the story. We have enjoyed the book so far and we have found the pictures in the book really interesting.

Our numeracy focus this week has been on subtraction . We all feel very confident with using the column method for subtraction. In literacy we have been answering questions based on Wales. We have learnt lots of new facts about Wales and we are looking forward to tasting some Welsh foods. In RE we have been learning about the items that can be found inside an Gurdwara.


Last week of term

Snowdon Interviews

admin on: Elms

This week we were learning about Mount Snowdon, did you know that the mountain, which is 1,085m tall, is the highest  in England and Wales? The tallest mountain in the UK is Ben Nevis in Scotland. There is a cafe and visitor centre on the summit of Snowdon and a train line which visitors can use to get to the top. After we learned the facts about Snowdon the students got into pairs and prepared a question and answer interview which we then performed in front of the class, as you can see from the pictures below.


Another busy week !

This week,  we have been writing diary extracts linked to the book 'Georges Marvellous Medicine' in literacy. In numeracy we have moved onto word problems which we have really enjoyed the challenge of tackling. We also enjoyed our afternoon learning about road safety. 

We are exicited for a spooky week next week !

What a busy week we have had!

This week in DT we have begun the exciting task of building our Anglo- Saxon houses. We painted sticks brown as Anglo-Saxon houses were made out of wood. We then stuck the sticks to the sides of our bases with PVA glue. Our next step is to decide how we are going to create the grass and the roof using the materials Miss Gilchrist provides us with.

In numeracy we have been continuing with addition. We can now add two 4 digit numbers when we need to rename the ones and tens. Hopefully by next week we will be able to tackle any word problems.

In science we have moved onto learning about electricity.

In literacy we have had a focus on report writing . We have been writing a newspaper article based in the story 'Geroge's Marvellous Medicine'. In numeracy we have started to learn about how to tackle addition number sentences when the ones need to be renamed tens. In D&T we have started the task of building our Anglo-Saxon houses. We hope to upload some photos next week on our progress so far .
