This week in maths we have continued to work hard on understanding the place value of different numbers. We have looked at the different ways that numbers can be represented, compared and ordered. We have also learned new mathematical vocabulary – ascending, descending, most significant digit and least significant digit.
In writing we have focused on the ‘must dos’ for writing. These include:
- Capital letters at the start of a sentence
- Punctuation at the end of a sentence
- Capital letters for proper nouns
Our topic this half term is ‘Where in the world am I?’ and this week we have used maps to locate specific countries, counties and cities.
Help at home by regularly listening to your child read and discussing the content to develop understanding. Feel free to quiz us on some of the new vocabulary we have discussed this week too (initiative, specific, pace)!
