We have been really enjoying our class reading book and, in English this week, we are writing our own chapter of ‘Mortal Engines. ‘ We are really looking forward to seeing where the children take the story as well as displaying their English writing skills. In grammar, we have been studying how to identify the active and passive voice.
In Maths, we are continuing work on fractions as well as looking at conversion and comparison to decimals. We are reviewing place value and ordering.
This week sees the end of our ‘Home from Home’ project and we are really looking forward to sharing all of our discussions and homework on Thursday afternoon – we have been loving the fantastic insect houses that have been sent in already!
After half term, we will be starting our new project on WWII so we are encouraging the children to do some research about the topic over the holiday – this could just be talking to family, friends and neighbours about what they know . It is a fantastic project and we always love to hear stories about your families and their involvement and memories of WWII – it is such a meaningful subject and we hope the children will really engage with it and remember what they learn.
PE – indoor will be on Wednesdays, outdoor on Tuesdays. Please bring a full kit as we are likely to go in some pretty chilly and damp weather over the course of the Winter.
We have a couple of important dates for you to be aware of:
Please remind children that homework for project needs to be brought in on Thursday 19th October and that MyMaths tasks must all be completed before the end of half term.
For project homework we would like students to complete at least 3 tasks from the grid .
Any questions, please do catch us in the playground.
