Our class book that we will be reading in English is 'Journey to the River Sea" by Eva Ibbotson.
What's the smallest book you have ever seen? This week you are going to create your own miniature book that tells a friendly story for a young child of a day in the life of a dinosaur.
We also want you to imagine you are Charles Darwin and have just arrived in the Galapagos Islands. Write a postcard about your experience.
You will also have a SPAG lesson where we will recap the past and present progressive tense.
Our weekly spellings: Words ending in 'a'l 'el' and 'le'. A task has been assigned to you google classroom .
This week we will begin by continuing learning about ratio. Our focus will be using ratio to divide quantites or numbers. We will then learn how to solve everyday problems involving proportion, e.g. recipes. Towards the end of the week we will look at reasoning questions involving both ratio and proportion.
Over the next two weeks we will be looking at decimals, fractions and percentages and the relationship between them. We will start the week with looking at decimal numbers. We will then look at decimal and fraction equivalents. Then we will start to understand percentages and look at converting between percentages, fractions and decimals.
In RE, we will complete our unit on Sikhism, by exploring and understanding the importance of their holy book, the Guru Granth Sahib.
In our Science lessons this week you will explore the evidence for human evolution, and the importance of finches to Darwin's theory of evolution.
In Music, we will be following Miss Lynch's lesson and developing body percussion.
