What we will be up to this week....


Maths (WB 02.2.18)

This week the children will begin to look at fractions. Fractions will last for several weeks encompassing a wide range of skills. We will begin with equivalent fractions, turning improper fractions into mixed numbers and mixed numbers to improper fractions.


English (WB 2.2.18)

Children will continue looking at myths, breaking up the parts of a story into beginning, build up, problem, resolution and ending and discussing what each part should contain. They will finish the week with a 'hot write' about their own myth.
