Maths
This week, we have been applying our learning from over the course of the year, to worded problems. Topics have included: place value, fractions, multiplication and division and addition and subtraction. We were very successful because we used a set of steps and partner talk to help us. We had to draw jottings, pictures and working out to help us solve the problems.

In spelling, we have been working hard on our reading comprehension work, using our sets of steps. We’ve all been working on our own targets towards these. We’ve also been set a ‘Rapid Reading’ challenge. Each day, we are trying to increase the number of words that we can read in a minute. We are very much enjoying this and have already made great progress! 

Explorer of the Week was awarded to Max, for sensible attitude and extra hard work this week.
We earned 2 handshakes this week! Well done everyone!
