Can you believe we are in Summer Term already?? Time to prepare for Year 5!!
Although this has been a short week, we have managed to fill it with lots of new learning. In maths, we have been looking at 5-digit place value as well as negative numbers. On Monday, we will be solving some temperature and money problems, involving negative numbers-I was very impressed, today, with how well they did with comparing and ordering negative temperatures. In English, we have started to look at a new story, that will be the inspiration for our next 'Big Write'. This story is set in Pakistan, and we have learnt quite a bit about the culture in Pakistan to give the story context. Next week, we will begin to look at the powerful vocabulary and phrases used in the story and characterisation.
Next week we will also be starting our new Geography topic 'Brazil and the Amazon' and our Science topic 'Living things and their Habitats'....so plenty more new learning to look forward to!
I have not set any homework this week, with it being a short first week back. I will send spellings home on Monday and they will be tested on Friday.
Have a lovely weekend!
