Hawthorn class have made an excellent start to the spring term!
In English, pupils have enjoyed reading and learning about The Switch by Anthony Horowitz. They have learnt actions for the model text and have been discussing the characters and studying the text, so that they can write just as well as Anthony Horowitz!
In maths the children have learnt about fractions, in particular how to compare and order fractions using ‘more than’, ‘less then’ and ‘equal to’ signs.
They have started to learn about the Mayan civilisation and have discovered some of the countries where Mayan cities were built. The class are looking forward to learning even more about the Mayans next week during our Mayan workshop!
Pupils have started to learn about printing in art and we will study Mayan designs so that they can create a tile based on these patterns – lots to look forward to next week!
