What a fabulous week we have had!

In maths, we have been adding and subtracting money and finding change

In English, we have written recounts using prepositional phrases and rich and vivid language

In the afternoons, we have been learning all about Mount Vesuvius and written a diary entry to describe the events of the eruption in Pompeii. We have also painted our amazing volcanos!

Next week

Next week, in topic we will be exploring primary and secondary sources and learning how a seismograph works!

In English, we will be writing diary entries, concentrating on irregular verb tenses.

In Maths, we will be continuing our money journey and will be beginning to look at telling time

Homework this week-

Can you research a different active volcano? What have you found out about it? Present your research any way you wish - draw pictures and include exciting facts!
