Well done Team Sapphire for completing the first full week of the term. I hope that you are all now getting used to the early starts to the day!

This week we have been learning about number and place value in Maths and exploring the features of mystery stories in English through the book Watertower. In Science we began our topic on Changes of Materials and revisited our previous learning about solids, liquids and gases.

Next week, in English, we will continue to explore the features of mystery stories through our new book The Boy in the Tower. In Maths, we will be continuing our work on number, focusing on rounding numbers up to a million!

This week’s Home Learning: Peaceful Problem Solving

Be as creative and as colourful as you like. You could draw a cartoon strip, write a script or act out a scenario, taking photos and stick them into your book.


Continue to read every day and remember to record in your Reading Record Book.
