LITERACY

This week we will be writing our own adventures inside Wonka’s chocolate factory. The children will be using their own new characters, factory rooms and story structures. Their final pieces of creative writing will be constructed into a class book of the missing chapters of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. We look forward to sharing these with you are our chocolate showcase.

MATHS

In Maths, the children will consolidate and extend their understanding of fractions and use fractions as numbers. They will cover unit fractions, 1/2, 1/3, and non-unit fractions with small denominators, 3/8, 7/12.

This will include recognising and showing fractions through diagrams and findings their equivalents. Finally they will learn to add and subtract fractions with the same denominator within one whole (5/7 + 1/7 = 6/7).
