Another week has flown by! We have now finished our Geography topic and can now name the continents and oceans of the world and explain what they are, and we can also use maps, make keys and explain why people use maps and how. Phew! Maybe your child can plan your next car journey?!
We have been exploring formal letters in English and can now identify their features. If you have any books with letters in or any letters you are happy to share, please bring them in! We have also focused on suffixes (particularly -less, -ness, -ly and -ful) and I have set a spag.com homework that can help with these suffixes and more! I have given the children a slip to explain the homework and it also has their username and password on. If you need any help with this, just ask!
In Maths, we have started looking at fractions, thinking about them being equal parts and how this links with our knowledge of division. We will continue looking at fractions over the coming weeks, focusing on halves, thirds and quarters.
Our next topic is art and we will be looking at sculpture using clay and collagraph printing. I will send home a knowledge organiser on Monday to help with your child's understanding. The secret word is collagraph.
Have a restful weekend and enjoy the Fashion Show on Saturday!
