Another productive week of learning. This week we have been busy in Literacy with our story 'City of Ember'. We have produced some great descriptions  using our notes and plans. We have got some great ideas about the story and how we think it will end. We have been using our reading skills to summarise paragraphs and scenes.
In Maths, Year 5 have been multiplying whole numbers and those involving decimals by 10, 100 and 1000. They have been looking at patterns and what happens to the decimal point and 0. They have applied this knowledge to problem solving. 
Year 6 have looked at converting fractions into decimals and percentages, and decimals into fractions and percentages. The children need to know basic fractions, decimal and percentage equivalents, ie, 0.5 = 1/2 = 50%, 0.25 = 1/4 = 25% etc.
We have continued to find out about famous Scientists . In PSHE we explored what failure looks and feels like and how we can use failure as a means to succeed.
In History we did some research about different inventions. Some of us created a timeline about inventions.
In P.E. we have continued to learn the skills of Tag Rugby. At the moment we are on the field still so we will get muddy.
Well done to everyone who donated and took part in Children in Need.
Home learning is on Teams so please make sure your child can log onto Teams to access this.
All Year 5 and 6 children came home with a revision book this week for Maths and English. These are really useful for supporting home learning and great for revision. Please use them.
Thank you
