This week we have been learning:
History and Geogrpahy
- We have been looking at the famous explorer Christopher Columbus.
-We looked at sources (pictures) from 1400 to guess what he did and where he went.
-We then mapped out his journey on a world map using a key to help explain the markings on our maps.
-Using our knowledge about keys we then created a map of our classroom using a key.
-We started the week by writing a recount of our Easter holiday news.
-Towards the end of the week we planned and wrote a diary entry pretending to be Christopher Columbus on his excursion. We focused on using expanded noun phrases in our writing.
-We have recapped this week over time.
-The children have learnt how to tell the time (o'clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to).
- The children have also learnt how to display the hands on an analogue clock.
-We have been looking -ing and -ed.
Red class have had a great first week back and should all be proud of their positive attitudes they have had towards their learning this week.
