In English this week, we have continued our work on spelling, punctuation and grammar. We recapped our learning of conjunctions and were able to use subordinating conjunctions to create some great sentence openers. In Maths this week, we have been focusing on decimals. The children have had to identify the place value of each digit and use this to help them to order and compare decimals. In Science, we have been learning about electricity and the children have planned their own experiment which they will carry out next week. Today, children worked on their sketching skills in art and have created some amazing candles!

Week Ending 9/10/20

In English this week, we have learnt how to construct different sentence structures and then used them within our writing. This week, in maths, we moved onto fractions. We started the week by finding equivalent fractions and then moved onto converting improper fractions into mixed fractions and mixed fractions into improper fractions.  We did this by using concrete resources first before representing it pictorially. We have attached some photos of this for you to see. We have also started our History topic, We’ll Meet Again, which is all about World War 2.
