|We will continue to read The Giraffe and the Pelly and Me by Roald Dahl. We will also be learning some new reading skills as a whole class using ERIC. The children will build their repertoire of different reading skills through the year.|
- To use arrays to solve multiplication problems
- To learn the 2x tables
- To learn the 5x tables
- To learn the 10x tables
- Using arrays to solve multiplication problems
Arrays can be used for building multiplication facts in a meaningful way. Before drilling and memorising tables, children must understand how these facts are derived. For example, by progressively adding another column of three objects, children can build the three-times tables for themselves.
To learn the 2,5 and 10 x tables the children will:
– Look at patterns and rules – 2 and 10 times tables the numbers are even. In the 5 times tables, they end in a 5 or 0.
|-Look at the rules of commutativity
– Oral activities – songs, rhymes and raps help young children to memorise multiplication facts
-Practical activities – flashing 5 fingers
Examples of living things – baby, butterfly, oak tree, goldfish
Examples of things that were once alive – leather bag, cotton jumper
Examples of non-living things – plastic bag, metal
We will continue to explore line and tone. The children will draw different facial parts by taking a line for a walk. They will draw a mouth, an eye, an ear and a nose without lifting their pencil form the paper. The children will apply this to Florence Nightingale. The children will draw a portrait of Florence Nightingale by taking their pencil for a walk.
Is your child an author?
If yes, head over to Grant Koper’s website. Your child has the opportunity to have their story published on his website and their story read out of YouTube by Grant himself!!!
