This Week(20/09/21): 

Maths: We will be continuing our work on place value in numbers up to one million. We will also compare and order numbers up to one million. Check out https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/place-value for lots of great place value games. We espcially love 'Place Value Millionaire'. Have you got what it takes? Please continue to use Doodle Maths and TT Rockstars to practise number skills at home. Doodle Maths is an excellent resource and when used regularly, it can have a big impact on your child's progress. 

English: We will be writing our own diary extract of a day in the life of our queen. We will use the key features of diary writing and edit our writing to make improvements. Our guided reading text is about Queen Elizabeth and our focus will be on retrieval, explanation, inference and prediction questions this week. Our SPaG focus will be apostrphes used as contractions and also for possession. Our spelling focus will also be apostrophes and the associated rules.  Play https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zvwwxnb/articles/zx9ydxs to consolidate your learning on apostrophes at home. Let us know how you did in the quiz! Please continue to read every day at home because this will help you to make progress in your reading. We check reading records daily to monitor your reading at home and please ask a parent/carer to acknowledge any reading at home with a signature. 

Topic: We will be looking at how and when Queen Elizabeth I became queen. Our big idea is 'Cause and Change'. We welcome any resources you may have at home that will support our learning. All resources coming into school need to be named.
