Week Beginning 08.04.19
This week's learning:
This week we will be continuing with our work on persuasive leaflets. We have researched our own animal and will now be writing a leaflet to persuade people they should help to protect that animal.
This week we will be ordering fractions which are greater than one, after we have made sure that we understand conversion between improper fractions and mixed numbers. We will be working on the ipads to complete our learning this week, using the app 'Showbie'.
Comparing Fractions Game:
This week in Science we will be looking at the life cycles of birds and insects, comparing these to the mammal life cycles we looked at last week.
Whilst completing assessments, we will also be taking part in a number of independent activities for Art, History and Geography. We will be sketching plants in art, continuing to explore rivers in Geography and answering a historical enquiry question about the Staffordshire Hoard.
Stages of a river video:
All links are optional for the children to explore extra games and information.
The spellings this week are:
