We have just had confirmation that the Space Gallery is back open, therefore 5G and 5B will go on their trip as planned.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
This week in maths we have continued to study fractions. We have been adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominators as well as looking at equivalent fractions and trying to understand what this means. Additionally, we have started to look at fractions with different denominators – firstly by adding them – and this will continue into the next week.
This week in topic we have been focusing on writing a newspaper report. To begin with, we created a mock alien crash landing in the playground which the children really enjoyed exploring to find language for our reports. This was then the focus of our report and we subsequently used our information gathering to help plan our news reports. After this, we spent time writing our reports, thinking about all the features that we needed to include as well as the correct layout and presentation to adopt.

I can investigate the effects of friction.
I can subtract fractions with different denominators.
I can compare and order fractions.
I can convert mixed numbers to improper fractions.
I can convert improper fractions to mixed numbers.
