Friday 18th February, 2022.
Good morning, due to the closure of school today, here is our maths PowerPoint and worksheet. Below is also a reading comprehension to work through.
Below are two different reading comprehensions. Please choose the one you feel is most appropriate for your child.
Topic: This week we will be bringing our Victorian topic to an end by finding out about Mary Seacole and comparing Victorian hospitals to our hospitals now. We will also be doing some Victorian cooking with Mrs Ball. She will be making scones with us for us to enjoy as part of a Victorian feast! What a good way to finish this fantastic topic.
Literacy: We will be writing our newspaper reports this week using the 5 W's. We have all chosen which part of the Oliver Twist story we are going to report on. We have been learning how to use the present perfect tense this half term so this will be our opportunity to put these skills into practise.
Maths: We are carrying on with our learning on fractions this week. We will be looking at unit and non-unit fractions, how to count in fractions and how to place these fractions along a number line.
Spellings: Please check spelling books for our new patterns for this week. We are still practising every day for 15 minutes. Please take some time to practise some more of your year 3/4 words at the back of your books as I will be quizzing you on these this week. Can we get better scores than we did last half term? Absolutely... with a bit of practise!
Mrs Phillips will be teaching you all on Thursday as well as Friday this week. She is looking forward to finishing this week and this half term with you all. Remember we return on March 1st (Shrove Tuesday - Pancake Day!) as Monday 28th February is an Inset Day. Our next topic is called, 'Beneath our Feet'. We will be learning about volcanoes, earthquakes, rocks, soils and fossils. I really enjoy this Geography based topic as its so practical and has many opportunities for being outside and exploring. More details to follow! Watch this space!
That's all for this week. I want to wish you all a restful and peaceful half term. Well done to all of Maple Class for their hard work this half term. It hasn't always been easy but we've done so well and everyone should feel very proud of all they've achieved so far. See you all on Tuesday 1st March.
