Welcome to the Zoom Room!

Mrs Hennegan and Mrs Openshaw

Autumn Term 1

We have been planning some exciting outdoor learning opportunites taking advantage of the fine Autumn weather!  We have also been incorporating this term's topic theme - 'Space' - into our maths English and SPaG, learning some amazing facts about the world beyond Earth!

Maths

In maths this term, we started by looking at place value then progressed onto the four mathematical operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and made some amazing posters to explain the written methods.  We have been exploring different ways to learn our times tables in including using the ICT suite, games and puzzles and using arrays of 'nature'.  We have also been looking at prime numbers and seeing if we can spot them in our outdoor area!

English

In English, we have been exploring the 'Sci-Fi' genre by looking at the film 'ET the Extra Terrestrial' and incorporating the plot into our very own Sci-Fi stories.  We have written some amazing setting descriptions and produced some very unusual alien character descriptions too!

    

SPaG

In SPaG, we have been revising word classes and exploring different types of conjunctions to join and extend our sentences.  We have also been looking at  punctuating direct speech and the use of paragraphs in our writing.  Whilst still making some time for some outdoor learning with a game of 'Past, Present or Future Tense' charades and a fab 'Word Class' Treasure Hunt!
