Week 2 in Cherry Class

This week has been very busy. We have been looking at place value in maths and using Base Ten and Place Value counters and grids to help us understand the value of each digit in a 3 digit number.

We know that 325 is equal to 300+20+5

We can also solve problems and answer questions about 3 digit numbers.

In English we have been improving our introductions for our holiday recounts, making sure we have included the 5 W’s and used great descriptions.

Our geography work included looking at the countries in Europe and finding the United Kingdom. We then used Digimaps on the laptops to investigate Woodborough. We found our school, Woodborough Hill and then many of us found our homes. We also spotted the canal and railway line, the roads and footpaths and also contour lines around Woodborough Hill and around the Alton Barnes White Horse.

We also have our first piece of maths homework, which should be completed and handed in on Tuesday. Please remember that homework should take about 30 to 40 minutes and when that time is up please stop and show me what you have done. Thank you.

Tomorrow is a Key Stage Two school meeting so please come along to share our work.
