Whilst studying rocks, children looked at different rocks under microscopes and magnifying glasses to identify their different properties.
In English, children looked at the images from the story and begin to predict and infer what was going to happen and how the characters were feeling.
Here, the children were using Base 10 to represent 3-digit number. After creating different numbers, children were asked to order the numbers.
This week in Maths, we began to look at numbers to 100. Using the base 10, children were able to represent 2-digit numbers in a variety of ways.
English - The Stone Age Boy
This week in English, we started reading a mystery story called The Stone Age Boy which also links with out History topic.

Today, we made our sandwiches! First, we looked at our plans to check how we were going to make them. After, we had a discussion about hand hygiene and why it is important. Finally, we carefully made our sandwiches, before evaluating them!
In today’s lesson, we listened to the ‘King of Fishes’. After summarising the plot, we watched how the text was turned into a story map. In small groups, our class re-told the folktale through drama.
