Time Zones

As part of our Science work on Earth and Space, we have learnt that although the Sun appears to move in the sky, it is in fact the Earth that is moving. We have then learnt that different parts of the world have different times because of the movement of the Earth.

We investigated and explored different Time Zones by using maps, atlases and Google Earth.

Deciphering Decimals

Today in Mathematics, we have started our new topic – Decimals. We have learnt that we can use apparatus to represent our decimals.

We learnt that we can use a one thousand block to represent one, a hundred square to represent a tenth, a ten stick to represent a hundredth and a one to represent a thousandth. We then drew these in different representations using picture and place value counters.

We will continue to use this apparatus to further understand decimals.
