This week in Friesian Class
Welcome back for another term! I hope you enjoyed a restful and enjoyable half term.
This week the children will be starting their new RE unit by focusing on our new Christian value of the term: Forgiveness. We will be retelling the story of Zacchaeus the Tax Collector and thinking about how forgiveness affects ourselves, our community and our wider world.
In maths, we will be continuing our work on fractions. The Y4's will be working with Miss Rudge and Mrs Stevens to add fractions together, as well as building their rapid recall of times tables. In English, we will be starting a new writing unit of Autobiographies. The children will be finding the features, boxing up, comprehending and writing the introductions.
In Immersion Curriculum, we are geographers and we will be investigating rivers and linking this to the water cycle.
Reading books will be changed on Tuesday this week due to the INSET day on Monday. If your child has not finished their books by Thursday (the next day of book change), we will change them again on the following Monday.
