Hello and welcome to the 5W’s blog.
More long multiplication was the name of the game this week. Multiplying 3 and 4 digit numbers by a 2digit number.
We started the week looking at prefixes (added to the beginning of a root word) and suffixes (added to the end of a root word).
The prefixes were de, dis, re, over and mis. Making new words like; mistake, overrun, rework, despair and denote.
We also looked at extracts of text from Bling and had to write what we deduced from them.
Our writing this week was a diary extract. We had to pretend we were Billy on the day he discovered his beloved cat had sat on the magic cushion and been turned into solid gold. Fronted adverbials and time connectives were the things we were asked to concentrate on.
Pupil of the week is …… Elise Finch-Rowe for taking her writing to the next level and overcoming her fears and reading out loud to the class with fluency and expression.
Stay warm and enjoy your weekend!
