Cyprus and Ithaca Blog: Week Beginning: 9.10.17

Welcome back to Cyprus and Ithaca class,

This week we have been very busy focusing on the 6 and 7 times tables and learning about the inverse of multiplication. We have also learnt about reading the time on an analogue and digital clock. We have practised converting hours into minutes and minutes into hours as well as using mathematical vocabulary such as a quarter past, half past, quarter to etc.

In Literacy we have been focusing on newspaper reports and how to write an article. We learnt about the features of a newspaper, how to conduct an interview and gather information.  In Topic we have learnt about different types of teeth and their function.   

The homework challenge for this week is:

  1. Cut out five photographs from a newspaper. You will need to write a caption for each of the photos (a short sentence explaining the picture.) You will then need to write at least the first two sentences of the opening of the story (from your imagination.)
