This week we have been working really hard on our division skills. We have explored different strategies and used concrete materials to help us see when there is a remainder and some of us have also begun working on short division. In number talks we have started to look at negative numbers. We have also started learning the 7 times table and had fun singing and moving along to this video – try it at home!
We enjoyed another session of hockey on Monday and played a game which helped us work on scoring.
We worked in pairs to come up with an idea for an event and then we designed a poster advertising our event. We made sure we included the place, date, time, cost and any other important information. We have continued our learning about the Vikings and have found out more about their daily lives. We wrote a diary entry from the perspective of a Viking child and decided we are very lucky to be children in 2020 rather than Viking times! We revised counting to 20 in French and played a game of bingo and a game called Killer 12 – this was a fun way to improve our fluency!
We have also worked together to come up with some new class rules and we created a superhero themed Class Charter to reflect our rules and remind us of our rights.
