Term 2 Week 1 5.11.21

Welcome back to Term 2. This term our topic is called What Price Progress. It is a technology themed topic. We started the week with a 'Dragon's Den' style lesson, where those who completed their home learning, presented their 'invention'. They were amazing at presenting and the 'Dragons' were really good at asking questions about the invention.
In Literacy, we have started to read The City of Ember. We have written descriptions for one of the main characters and we have looked at how to use inverted commas for dialogue. We are building on our inference skills in reading.
In Maths, Year 5 have been finding out about multiples, factors and prime numbers. They have been applying their knowledge to solve problems. In Year 6 they have been looking at equivalent fractions and how to find them. They have looked at improper and mixed number fractions. They have been learning how to simplify fractions. They have also been comparing and ordering fractions. They have been using this knowledge to solve problems.
In P.E. we are learning to play Tag Rugby. Our P.E. will be on Fridays this term. 
Well done to those who are now wearing school shoes, instead of trainers. If your child has a medical need for wearing trainers then please speak to Miss Hill or Mrs Boot, our SEND team.
As the weather is getting colder, please ensure your child has a coat with their name in.
Have a lovely weekend.
