Week beginning 14.03.22

Dear parents and carers,

This week we started our new writing unit. The children will be writing a diary entry based around the book, Henry’s Freedom Box.

In guided reading we also started our new unit of work. The book we are reading and practising reading skills from is The Storm Keeper’s Island.

For maths this week the children were working on simplifying fractions, working with cubed numbers and recapping addition and subtraction using the column method. Thank you to all the children who are completing the homework set on Mathletics. 

In art the children are learning about and creating art work around optical illusion art. They will be learning about the artist Bridget Riley.

We hope you have a restful weekend.
