Important Dates

Week Commencing 28th September 2020
Literacy and SPaG
We are going to be continuing looking at setting descriptions this week; enhancing our vocabulary choices with personification and pathetic fallacy. We will be building atmosphere around a beach using these types of figurative language.
This week we are continuing with place value within one million. We will be looking at rounding and negative numbers. 
Our next topic block is science where we will be learning about materials. The children will be learning about thermal and electric conductors by doing two investigations and then be looking at how we can separate different materials, such as sand and water, and applying this thinking to a real-life context.
