This week, we will begin our new writing unit on 'Explanation texts'. We will start by reading a range of explanation texts and highlight the key features. The children will then have a go at writing their own explanation text, linked to our class book 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. In maths, we will continue with time, focusing on converting seconds to minutes and minutes to hours. We will also discuss days in a week, weeks in a month and months in a year. It would be very helpful if the children could practise telling the time at home. All the children are at a different point with this but starting with quarter to and quarter past is a good place to start. Once they are happy with this, they could move on to the nearest 5 minutes and nearest minute. We are also looking at converting analogue clocks to their digital equivalents. In RE, we will continue to look at the Gospels and in Art, we will carry on with our landscape paintings. Swimming will be running as usual and Outdoor Learning will resume to Friday afternoon. Thanks for all your support.
