Hot Task – Story Writing and Measure in Maths

Last week we completed our English story writing unit with our Hot Task. Everyone worked really hard to use extended noun phrases, fronted adverbials and inverted commas in their writing. Finally they worked in pairs to edit their stories.

Mrs Elsden and Mrs Bethel are making a class book of our stories and have made a display of planning books and some of the stories.

Today, in Maths, we have been comparing measures. Mrs Elsden read ‘Actual Size’ by Steve Jenkins to us – a book about the size of the biggest and smallest animals in the world. We then went outside to draw these measurements on the playground. The results surprised many of us.
