An End to our Antarctic Adventures

Today was the last day of our learning about adventures that have taken place in Antarctica. You have worked with such enthusiasm during this topic and it has been a delight to watch you learn and listen to all of your fascinating questions including in science too where you have been learning about states of matter! Some of your questions have certainly challenged me! 

During the next two weeks, our focus will be Easter. In Literacy we will be reading and investigating a range of poems and having a play with language. Fractions will be our main focus in maths. Examples of our learning will include learning how to find 4/6 of 24, recognising equivalent fractions i.e. 1/3 = 2/6 and solving tricky fraction problems. For example, "Miss Townsend baked 35 hot cross buns. She burnt 2/5 of them! How many tasty buns did she have left?" Our times table focus continues to be the 8s so remember to keep practising every night at home so that you know them by heart. R.E. will focus on Christianity. We will explore different bible versions of the Easter story and focus on the values of forgiveness and what our own personal values are. As well as all of this learning, we will keep singing in preparation for entertaining your grown ups during our Easter coffee morning.

Have a lovely weekend. Have a good rest and remember to get something out of your bookbag on Sunday! :)  

Love from Miss Townsend xxx

P.S. If you have found telling the time tricky this week, extra practice at home will help you.
