Happy New Year!
I hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas break and is now refreshed and ready for the Spring term. Thank you so much for all of the gifts and cards I received.
This week in English, we blew out the Christmas cobwebs by developing our comprehension skills and exploring a variety of texts on superheroes, octopuses and fitness. We discussed how to use the text to support our answers using P.E.E – Point, Evidence, Explain.
Next week, we will start our new unit based on The Varmints. Over the next few weeks, we will look at persuasive writing, narrative and recounts.
This week in Maths, we revisited fractions. We spent time exploring fractions in real life contexts and used a variety of manipulatives to identify equivalent fractions.
Next week, we will be investigating the relationship between fractions, decimals and percentages.
