This Week’s Learning

This Week’s Learning – week beginning 25/3/2019


This week in literacy, we will be focusing on writing scripts for our learning celebration.


In maths we will continue our fractions topic and will be focusing on adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions and mixed numbers. Some groups will also be finding fractions of amounts.


This week in science, we will be looking at what plants are best for attracting bees and other insects and how plants reproduce. Year 5 will be taking part in a competition for the next couple of weeks where they will have to design a flower bed in small groups. The winning group’s design will be used when replanting the flower bed at the top of St Rule Street.


For topic this week, we will be preparing for our learning celebration performance which is based on Ancient Greece. It is on the 4th April at 9.15 am and 2 pm.

Spellings: criticise, lightning, rhyme, recognise and sacrifice
