Friday Briefing - 17/11/2017

English:  We have finished writing and editing our non-chronological reports about Christopher Columbus.  Our grammar focus has been looking at the use of a apostrophe for possession.
 
Phonics: We have worked on alternate pronunciations and spellings  for 'igh'. 
 
Maths: We are continuing our work on bar models to help solve two step word problems involving addition and subtraction. 
 
PE: Multiskills: Aiming at a target- we used beanbags and hoops to make a target.  Please ensure you send your child with some tape if they cannot take their earrings out or we can use school masking tape to cover them.  
 
Design: We have continued working on our islands.
 
History: We mapped out Christopher Columbus' route and labelled the countries he passed. 
 
Science: We have chosen facts about John McAdam to write in a non-chronological report.
 
RE: We will continue writing and illustrating our story map that tells the Christmas story.
 
Homework: If you could go on a voyage where would you go and why? 
 
Please ensure reading books and diaries are in school everyday.
Please remember to return homework and spelling books on a Tuesday.
