The children have had a brilliant start within Maths. This week we will be continuing place value looking at negative numbers, rounding up and down and finding 1000 more and less than a number. 

 

Literacy 

 

We've had a fantastic start to our literacy topic researching all different facts about the Vikings, including everything from how their boats are made to what they eat for dinner. Within Literacy this week we will continue to research Vikings in order to create our own fact-files.

To support our literacy the children will be dissecting fact-files and developing key skills such as skimming, scanning and inference.

Reading is an important skill, it expands our imagination and can bring us lots of enjoyment. As a school we want to encourage and  develop a love of reading for all of our pupils. To encourage this, we award a termly reading badge to those children who read at least 4 x a week over a 10 week period. Please record any reading in the Partnership book.
