Dear parents and carers,
In our English lessons this week, the children have been working on writing the first draft of their stories about Liam and Florida's adventures in space, inspired by Cosmic. Next week we'll be working on editing/revising and redrafting these stories. We'll also be building on our work this week on reading comprehension skills by having a go at a reading comprehension paper.
In maths this week we've tackled the tricky challenge of perimeter and area, including rectangles and compound shapes. The children have found this hard, but have worked really hard and are getting there! Next week we'll be consolidating this, and also doing an arithmetic and a reasoning maths paper.
We have a really busy week next week, including our "Out of the Blue" day on Wednesday. I'm sure that the children will really enjoy the workshop and the performance, and I'm looking forward to hearing one of my former pupils sing!
I wasn't in school this morning, so I'll do the spelling test on Monday. Next week's spellings will be:
This is a set of tricky challenge words, so I just need to see that the children have had a good go at learning them. I'll test these next Friday (13th December) as usual.
