What are we learning?
Maths - This week we are continuing to learn about position and direction. We will learn how to use grid coordinates to describe location, how to draw a shape from coordinates on a grid, how to develop our reasoning using a coordinates grid and how to describe movement of shapes on a grid, which is called translation.
Writing - This week we will begin a narrative unit 'Stories set in an imaginary world'. We will be inspired by our class reading text and the rooms of wonder found within the Nowhere Emporium. This unit will give us an opportunity to develop our ability to use the power of 3 to expand on nouns, describe nouns in detail using relative clauses and use of figurative language. We will also continue to write fronted adverbials and secure our punctuation of them by using a comma after they are used to start a sentence. Also, we will consolidate our understanding of speech punctuation and use speech as a way of telling the reader more about a character.
Reading - In reading we are continuing to enjoy 'The Nowhere Emporium' by Ross Mackenzie. We will be using our retrieval and inference skills, as well as our ability to show our understanding of the text by summarising the key ideas within chapters.
Science - We will begin our science unit on ELECTRICITY this week and start by learning about static electricity. After this, we will look around our homes and identify technologies that are battery powered and those that are powered by mains electricity. We will also gain knowledge of how mains electricity ends up in our homes. An important part of this week's learning is also going to be learning how to stay safe when working with or using electricity.
