This week the children will be completing their non-chronological report on their class dinosaur. They will continue by creating their paragraphs on Behaviour and a conclusion for their class dinosaur.  Building upon the text map work they consolidated last week, children will amend the text map to suit their dinosaur.  This will involve them creating their own text map, to aid their sentence and paragraph structuring. By the middle of the week, the children will have written a paragraph about their dinosaur’s behaviour and will go on to write their concluding paragraph before editing and improving their work.


Title, sub-title, heading, sub-heading, information, paragraph, behaviour, conclusion, text map, picture, action


This week we will continue to develop the children’s knowledge and understanding of addition and subtraction through problem solving. This will give them the opportunity to apply their knowledge of the column addition and column subtraction methods learnt last week.

In Themed Learning, the children will be developing their sketching skills, concentrating on form and proportion to draw a dinosaur.  They will use shading techniques to give their sketch a more 3 dimensional appearance.
