This week we have been extremely excited to being our new topic ‘Portals to the Past’. We began by thinking of 3 big questions that we wanted to find the answers to by the end of the topic. Our questions ranged from what children did to entertain themselves in the Stone Age to how they carved their weapons. We also placed the Stone Age on a timeline and explored the settlements that people in the Stone Age created! At the end of the week we looked at cave paintings and the stories that they told about life in the Stone Age. We created our very own cave paintings in the classroom!
In maths this week we have been using the short method of division (bus stop). We also progressed onto exchanging and remainders.
