This week in maths we have continued learning about fractions and related these to decimals. The children have worked really hard and gained a good understanding. The next block of fractions work after Easter will focus on finding fractions of amounts and adding and subtracting simple fractions.
In English this week we have been learning about homophones (words that sound the same but have different spellings and meanings). We have used these to have fun writing jokes and tongue twisters.
It was lovely to see all of the fabulous homework projects the children brought in for our showcase afternoon. We really hope you enjoyed looking at the children’s work if you were able to come along. The children told us about how much fun they had completing these with you so thank you for your support.
After Easter our topic is ‘Who lived here before?’ It will involve lots of local history and learning about the Saxons and Vikings. If you get chance to walk around the village over the holiday, you could look at the buildings, position of the river and consider how the area has changed over time.
We have had several cases of head lice recently. Please remember to check your children’s hair regularly and treat as needed.
There are no new spellings to practise over the Easter holidays but if children are feeling eager they can of course still play on Spelling Shed and Maths Shed!
Please remember that Friday 12th April is a staff training day. Children will return to school on Monday 29th April. We hope you all have a lovely Easter holiday.
