Learning this week...

We continued our work on multiplying fractions in maths and we focused on the calculations required to solve problems. In English, we explored another Suspense and Mystery text, The Boy In The Tower. We used this text to inform our own writing.


Learning next week...

Next week, we are converting different units of measure in maths using place value and multiplication and division strategies. In English, we will be using what we have read in our class text to write a news broadcast.


Home Learning 

Due in Wednesday 22nd January 2020

For your homework this week, we would like you to practise using contracted forms. Then, please write a sentence for each one showing how you would use the contracted form. In English, we have been reading about the Boy in the Tower. You could write sentences describing what you have read in the story so far.

Who were the Vikings and when did they live?

Why did they come to Britain?
