This Week's Learning

Term 5 Week 5

In English this week, we are going to turn our attention towards narrative writing. We have already spent time storyboarding sections of the class quest. We will use these storyboards to create a series of simple action sentences which retell the story. Next, we will explore how we can use adverbial phrases and conjunctions to add relevant and interesting detail to our sentences.

In Maths, we are going to use and apply the mental addition skills that we have been working on recently to solve some reasoning problems. We will focus on working systematically and using precise mathematical vocabulary to explain our thinking.

In Time and Place we are going to use directional vocabulary to help explain the main events that preceded the Norman invasion of Britain in 1066. Next, we will use the Bayeux Tapestry as a source if information to make discoveries about the invasion itself.

In our Art and Design lesson, we will continue to build our castles with moving parts. We have added some pictures of us working hard onto the blog for you to have a look at. In R.E. we will continue to explore Judaism.

Well done to the Beech pupils who have been doing some extra wider curriculum home learning. Please check out and be inspired by the examples of extra home learning that have been added to the blog.
