This week in English we have been adapting a story to make our adventure story. We have been thinking about the way we create suspense by the vocabulary we use and the use of devices such as sort sentences. We also talked about using a cliff-hanger and using an ellipsis at the end of a paragraph. Next week, we will be creating our own adventure stories so it would be super if you could talk through a few ideas with your child.
In maths, we have been learning to calculate the duration of events by using number lines and adding on chunks of time when we cross the hour boundary.
The year 3 and 4 swimming gala will now be on Tuesday 16th July at Repton pool starting around 9.30. You are very welcome to join us for this event and any additional parents able to walk down with us would be appreciated.
The school fair is on Saturday 6th of July. We had a wonderful day last year raising a huge amount of money for your children. This year promises to be bigger and better so please come along and bring your friends and family for a super afternoon!
