Week Beginning 05.11.18

Choose Respect is the theme for Anti-bullying Week 2018.  The children will be taking part in a range of activities over the week linked to anti-bullying.  Activities include: The wall of respect, writing an acrostic poem on the theme of ‘choose respect’ and designing a ‘respect’ wristband.  Assemblies on Tuesday will have a bullying/anti-bullying focus, and we will be looking out for children who ‘choose respect’ over the week.
Please ask your child to share what they have learnt this week.  They should be able to explain what bullying is, what to do if worried about bullying, and know that they are in control over the way they behave and treat others.
If you have any board games you would be happy to donate for wet play, please send them in with your child. Thank you.

This Week’s Learning (05.11.18)

Topic: children have been learning about different British inventors. This week they finished their write up of a non-chronological report and then began to look at biographies. We identified the features of a biography together and then children had a go at finding them in a text. After, they researched a chosen inventor, filled in a plan and then began writing their biography.

Maths: we learnt how to add and subtract fractions this week, making the denominator the same in order to do so. Children found the common multiples to make the denominators the same and then made sure they multiplied the numerator by the same amount. On Friday, we started to look at how to multiply fractions, but will continue with this next week.

This week, children will be bringing home a topic based task in their books. This needs to be returned by Thursday 15th November.
