This week we will be looking at Myths and Legends and applying these skills:

  • Identifying modal verbs within a text

  • I can use dashes to add more information to a sentence.

This week we will

  • Add and subtract whole numbers with more than 4 digits, using mental and formal written methods
  • Solve addition and subtraction multi-step problems in contexts, deciding which operations and methods to use and why
  • Solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in a line graph
This week in IPC ..

We are learning about Extreme Survivors. This week we will be learning to locate mountain ranges and be aware of the biodiversity within them. We will also be thinking about how to pose scientific questions.

Parents can help their child by…

*listening to your child read at least 3 times a week and signing it in their pupil planners.

*recapping the passport tasks for their child's next passport.

*encouraging them to continue to develop speed and accuracy in times tables and division facts for up to 12x12.


This week's Maths homework is Place Value.

Homework will be sent home on Friday and must be handed in on a Wednesday. We will be alternating Maths and English homework each week. The tasks will be consolidating the learning the children have done previously.

Children should also be practising their spellings for their weekly test. Remember to continue to practise words from the previous weeks as they may be tested at random too!
