It has been a short week with the bank holiday and I can't believe it is Thursday already.
In English, we have started our first draft of our stories based on Grendel which is a version of the King Midas myth. The children are working really hard on remembering to add inverted commas when the characters are speaking which is pretty tricky! In maths, we have begun our second unit of fractions. We have been looking at tenths this week and will start to relate tenths recorded as fractions to tenths recorded as decimals. The children have really impressed me by beginning to use words like denominator and numerator to discuss fractions. We have continued to read about Ancient Greece in our reading time. During Life Skills, we have been learning all about jobs and looking at stereotypes. This afternoon, we are looking forward to going swimming. I have included a photo of the plants which are part of a science investigation that the children have set up. Thank you for the jam jars. We are going to grow broad beans in these. Photos will follow!
Ms Penny came into class this week and she was extremely pleased by the fantastic behaviour and attitudes of the children.
Next week, we are continuing to learn about plants in science. We will learn more about Ancient Greece starting with Gods and Goddesses. We will write our own version of the Grendel story and learn more about fractions.
Thank you for your support.
