Dear parents and carers,
In our English lessons this week we have been working on planning our stories based around our work on Cosmic. We've planned out our story steps and decided whether these steps are positive or negative, and we've thought carefully about which features we will include in each step, such as commas in a list or short sentences for effect. Next week we'll start writing our first drafts of these short stories.
In maths this week we've started looking at perimeter, which is the measurement around the outside of a 2d shape. We've done this with rectangles and also with compound shapes. Next week we'll use this knowledge to look at the area of rectangles and compound shapes.
