This week -
Numeracy - We will be trying to master equivalent fractions and we will have a couple of days of reasoning where we will be trying to convince our class that not only do we know how to work something out but that we can also say why it must be correct.
Literacy- We will be completing a reading task and developing further our work on adverts. This time we will be persuading people to come and visit Nottingham landmarks.
Art- On Thursday we will be taking part in Blue for a loo day and getting creative with toilet rolls! I wonder what we will be making? In the afternoon we will have a visitor in class who will tell us all sorts of wonderful things about water.
Swimming will be as normal
Last week- Goodness we worked hard this week. We are striding ahead with fractions and are getting to grips with equivalences.
We have made our outlines of a section from a picture of somewhere in the UK and we will begin to collage them.
Week Commencing 13.3.18
This week -
Literacy- We will continue to perfect our persuasive writing and on Wednesday we will be doing an independent write to show off all the great things we have been learning.
Numeracy- We will continue with fractions, finding a fraction of a set of objects i.e 1/5 of 20. The most important thing you will need is to know your times tables. We will be finding equivalent fractions firstly by drawing diagrams and then when we are confident with that we will be using multiplication. Again you will need to be confident with your times tables! By the end of the week we will be moving on to comparing fractions.
Geography; How has Britain become a multi-cultural society?
