In math we revised different types of word problems well as multiplication of 2 two-digit numbers and long division. Then the students were introduced to the topic of angles, the right angle and types of triangles based on angles or sides.
In language arts we worked on some reading comprehension and independent writing.
In science we began to learn about the phases of the moon. We discussed cycles of night and day and the four seasons and how the moon is related to each of them.
In math this week we worked on telling time: how are hours and minutes marked on the clock? Which hand shows hours and which one shows minutes? The students also showed time to 1-minute intervals.
In science we worked on a project that we are part of with a school from Spain through eTwinning. The Spanish students recorded a story without an ending and we made up and recorded an ending to their story.
In Language Arts we read a non fiction story about different animals and wrote about the various things we learned about them.
Last week we revised the sound “oa”. We practised reading short sentences. The children gave eachother dictations.
In maths we practised mental maths, adding and subtracting. We started to learn to count by tens to 50.
We planted some seeds, and learned about the life cycle of a plant.
The children all enjoyed the trip to the trampoline center on Friday.
English: Last week we worked on some humorous texts, identifying the funny bits and explaining them (cause and effect). We also work a bit on grammar (abbreviations).
New spelling words: received, account, budget, disappointed, chuckled, staring, repeat, fund, attention, enormous.
Math: We continued to work on our bar graphs – reading and creating them.
Science: Thanks to Lili, we learnt how to measure the water quality and we used this knowledge to compare the tap and bottled watter at school.
Of course, the most important event of last week was our trip to Hangar 646!
We all had great time there! 🙂
