Maths

Mrs Stanford will start the week by looking at fractions of shape.

I will be looking at last term's Maths assessments with the children then we will be completing our percentage modules before moving on to Ratio.

English

We will start our new class reader 'Wonder' this week.  It is a fantastic book and we will also be applying grammar punctuation learning and comprehension skills whilst reading it - as well as enjoying it too!

We will also start a new writing module focussing on non-Chronological reports.  Whilst we are celebrating Halloween in our country, in Central America (linked to Mayans) next week will mark the time of the Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).  We will be using various media (including the start of James Bond's Spectre!)  as a stimulus.
