Our Learning this Week

During English lessons this week we have been looking at the book ' holes'. This is about a young boy called Stanley Yelnat that has entered a miscarriage of justice and has been sent to  a boys' juvenile detention centre. 


In Guided Reading the children have finished looking at the book the arrivals. The children are really enjoying making inferences from this, and looking at how we add suspense by just using pictures. 


This week in maths we have been focusing on fractions. The children are using bar models to solve fractions. They have moved on to solving fractions of quantities and will continue this into next week. 


In History, we have been focusing on Crime and Punishment and introducing the new unit by looking at  Tudor crimes and punishments. The children are enjoying learning keywords in this era which will be tested in their spellings in class. They are also looking forward to their crime and punishment workshop on Monday/Tuesday which I shall upload on the website.


In RE the children have been looking at 'Rules for Living' and this has been interesting focusing on the Sikh religion.


Stay Safe and please see extra books, reading books and pencil's given to the children in case government states school's should be closed.
