Another great week from Oak class. This week we have used drama and comic, story boards to learn and remember the Greek myth of Theseus and the Minotaur.
In numeracy we have learnt about being meta learners. The children have had access to a range of resources and are picking the best tool for the calculation(after reflecting on their own learning style). This special trick has helped the children learn mental methods to add and used column addition too.
If you want to practise numeracy over the weekend, pick two, 4 digit numbers and add them together using column addition. Have your child tell you about each column and have them explain what they are doing with each number.
If you want to practise literacy, have your child retell the story of Theseus and the Minotaur. They can explain to you what makes the story a tragedy.
Our spellings are;
competition controversy convenience
conscience correspond criticise
conscious curiosity definite
It was lovely to see you at parents evening, and enjoy the weekend.
