This week the children will be innovating the model text. They will be researching and writing a persuasive text on how to save the whale.


All of the work in this unit will be based on the Michael Morpurgo book 'This Morning I met a Whale.'



In Number lessons the children's focus will be using and applying knowledge of percentages and recapping prior learning from previous years.
