9th – 13th March 2020
It was wonderful to meet most of you last week to discuss your children's progress and successes this year so far. Thank you. 

RE (Opportunities), English and Art

We will be learning about the events of Maundy Thursday, when Jesus shared the Last Supper with his apostles.  The children will write a recount of the events of that special day.  

Home learning: Please talk about your family’s Lenten promise, and help your child to see this as a way of making ourselves more like Jesus in all we do.raditional Tales

English and Science

We will be drawing our work on the traditional tales to a close. The children are very proud of all the work that has been done.  

The focus will be on plants this coming week, and the children will learn what things seeds need in order to grow into healthy plants. Our writing will include a recount for RE, and lists and captions for science.

Home learning: Pages 60 and 61, which focuses on the end of words.  

Mathematics

This coming week we will continue to work on division, making the link to multiplication, and by grouping.

e.g. How are these three numbers linked in a number family?

                    4   5   20        4 x 5 = 20;   5 x 4 = 20;   20 ÷ 4 = 5;   20 ÷ 5 = 4                                           

Home learning:  Pages 44 and 45. These exercises focus on division problems.

When dividing, you always need to start with the biggest number, and the answer will be smaller.
