Good morning,


We are now finished our assessment week activities so we are back to our normal Monday of lessons. In English we are looking at the Haiku that we will be using to facilitate our learning before Christmas. I would like you to read this Haiku and make notes on it using the questions that I have asked at the bottom of the page as well as anything else you may have thought about the poem. In maths we are recapping our understanding of place value and what each digit means in a 3 digit number. In guided reading there is a comprehension sheet for you to follow. 


Finally, we are continuing to look at fossils and rocks, I have copied a link below to the BBC Bitesize page for you to explore the videos on the page as well as complete the activities.

Good morning,


As you know this week is assessment week in school so we are completing assessments in class as opposed to completing full lessons. I have uploaded some documents below with assessment questions on them for you to work through. In the reading assessments you need to read the document first and then answer the questions about it. There is a 20 question maths assessment for you to complete which covers things that we have done so far this year. Finally, for the SPaG document I would like you to complete the sentences using words that make sense in the sentence.

In English we are staring to look at writing our own set of innovated instructions which you planned yesterday using your pictures.

This afternoon will be ICT and today the children are looking at creating a word document. I would like you to use Word or Google Docs to create a document where you can write down a short recap of your holiday.
