During our immersion day the children carried out activities such as tasting Mexican food, dancing to Mexican music and building Mayan temples. They used these experiences to plan the rest of the terms learning. If there are any areas that children would like to study further they should share these on our class Hwb page and they will be planned into future learning experiences. Our class novel this term is Holes by Louis Sacher.
Ongoing homework should be to focus on revising questions from Big Maths, activities from the homework menu (see document below) and to read every night.
When solving reasoning questions we encourage the children to use the RUCSAC method;
R- Read the question carefully twice, what is the important information?
U- Understand the question. What do you have to find out?
C- Choose the right operation (x-+÷) and method of calculation.
S- Solve the problem! Make sure you follow all the steps.
A- Answer- Have you answered the question? What were you meant to find out?
C- Check your answer. If possible use the inverse operation.
