News: This week the year 5 children have been learning about ordering and comparing numbers and counting forwards and backwards in powers of ten. Year 6 have been learning to round whole and decimal numbers and solve word problems involving negative numbers. In English we are continuing to study our class book 'The Highwayman.' We have been working on adding description to our writing and including dialogue. The children have enjoyed rewriting it from the point of view of one of the characters.

Remember: As next week is the end of term I will be beginning to collect in school library books. Please ensure all children have their reading books and reading records in next week.
Thursday 20th July will be the Year 6 ‘Water Fight.’ Please ensure that children have a complete change of clothing, a towel and a water pistol with them on this day.
Home learning: There was no home learning set last week but please remember to encourage your child to read daily.
News: This week year 5 have been multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. We have been concentrating on place value and have used place value grids and sliders to help us with this. The children have also been carrying out problem solving and reasoning tasks based on this. In addition Year 6 has been solving word problems involving multiplication and division. In English we have been using music and pictures to work on including figurative language to describe and create atmosphere in our writing. The children have created short creative writing pieces, worked on using semi-colons, colons and dashes correctly within sentences and written diary entries. They should be very proud of all their efforts!
