This Week’s Learning – w.b 18.06.2018

Topic

This week in Topic we planted our very own sweet peas! We all planted our seeds and discussed how we are going to keep our seed from growing. We have all got our very own sweet pea diary to keep track of how much it has grown and we are all very excited to watch them!

We also looked at the very famous artist, Vincent Van Gogh. We looked at some of his very famous paintings, including The Sunflowers and Starry Night and we all talked about how his paintings are different to other paintings we have seen before. We then experimented with these techniques before we painted our very own sunflower picture.

Maths

In maths this week, we have been understanding and creating arrays to help us solve multiplication problems. At the start of the week, we were looking at arrays and understanding how many rows of different things there were, such as flowers, cars and cakes! We moved on to making our own arrays so we could answer multiplication number sentences. By the end of the week, we were using the skills we had learnt to read and answer multiplication word problems, even some 2-step problems!
