Week 9 - 08/11/19

Welcome back everyone! Christmas here we come!!


This week in English, we learnt about Nelson Mandela and the importance of his work. At the start of the week, we developed our note-taking skills and enjoyed researching interesting facts about the civil rights leader. We also explored the features of biographies as we hope to write our own biography about Nelson Mandela over the coming weeks.


In Maths, we developed our understanding of mental strategies for addition and subtraction. These strategies included rounding for estimation, place value, equal sum, equal difference and regrouping. Next week, we will be selecting appropriate and efficient strategies for a variety of addition and subtraction calculations and will then be moving on to consolidate our understanding of column addition and subtraction. 


Thank you to all of you who attended Parents' Evening.
