This Week’s Learning

In topic this week, we have been exploring descriptive writing by looking at a traditional fairy tale, but with a twist. We have been focusing on the story of Little Red Riding Hood, however we watched a different version of the story called ‘Le Chaperon Rouge’. From this we have created a character description of a forest creature of our choice and created a descriptosaurus for our setting description. After that, we completed a plan of our actual story using the headings; Opening, Build Up, Problem, Resolution and Ending. We will be using this to write our stories next week.

In maths this week, we have been focusing mostly on word problems using the four operations. However, we started off with a multiplication lesson to recap the method of long multiplication ready for the rest of the week. We have focused on understanding and unpicking questions as well as choosing the appropriate method to solve them.

Times Tables Rockstars

Today your child will bring home their log in for Times Tables Rockstars, which was launched at Avenue last year. Please can you encourage your child to use their account as much as possible as times tables are a vital part of their progress in mathematics – it is very interactive so I’m sure they will enjoy it!
