This Week’s Learning


We have been doing lots of writing this week! We started the week off writing about the religious beliefs of the ‘Dark Ages’ and then took notes about the life of an Anglo-Saxon child. All of the research had prepared us, enabling us to write a diary where we were an Anglo Saxon child. We had to think about the features of a diary, these included:

-Emotions, feelings and opinions

-The use of senses

-Past tense

-First person

-Time phrases

-Powerful verbs and adjectives


Read, Revise, Review


This week we have been carrying on our work on place value. We have rounded numbers to the nearest ten, thousand, hundred and million and then developed our counting skills – counting in powers of 10. We know that:

10 x 10 = 100 = 10

10 x 10 x 10 = 1000 = 103

10 x 10 x 10 x 10 = 10,000 = 104

We then used our knowledge from the week to solve problems and play maths games.
