Friday 23rd June 2017
In literacy this week we have been looking at life as a Victorian child trying to escape from the workhouse. The children have done some drama in the role of runaway children and also written their own account of thier first night on the run.
In maths we have focussed on the end of year tests. The children have completed both a reasoning and arithmetic paper and also created a poster to explain fractions.
Next Friday is Sports Day, as Tigers have Game On on the Thursday they will not be able to take their PE kit home earlier in the week to wash. I have allowed them to take it home this week however it MUST be in school on Monday for a practice sports day in the afternoon.
Homework this week the children have spellings, times tables, reading and art. The children MUST complete all pieces of homework by Wednesday. Please encourage the children to take care with their art homework and
include lots of detail as this will become part of our Salvador Dali display for Celebration Evening.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend,

We have been looking at the Victorians in literacy. We have compared life now to back then and looked at the sorts of jobs children were expected to do. We have read an extract from Oliver Twist and written two pieces to innovate the story, one from the perspective of Oliver and the other the Master.
Maths - we have been practising our basic facts in readiness for the 380 test which took place on Thursday. We have also looked at fractions of shape and begun to look at finding fractions of number.
We have started looking at plants in science and set up an investigation growing cress in different environments.
Geography - we have used the globes to look for the invisible lines on the world and learn their names.
