In Literacy this week the children will be reading a variety of non-fiction texts linked to the theme of villages and settlements. The children will answer questions about the text during their guided reading session  and will be encouraged to share their ideas and contribute to the group discussion. The children will complete activites linked to the texts they read with a focus on retrieving and presenting facts and information. In writing the children will plan a three part story using all of the conventions they learned from the ‘Just So’ stories unit. Pupils will write in a similar style to the texts they have studied, using alliteration and repetition. They will also use correct punctuation to include dialogue in their texts.


In Maths this week, we will be practising converting between different units of measure for example, kilometre and metre; metre and centimetre; centimetre and millimeter. We will also introduce the equivalences between metric units and common imperial units such as inches. Towards the end of the week children will be applying their skills by using all four operations to solve problems involving measure (e.g. length) using decimal notation including scaling.


‘Building a Village’

Students will continue to develop their art skills as they construct complex 3D models using a range of techniques to form a realistic geographic landscape. As well as completing this on-going project the children will also compare different villages from across the globe. They will watch short video clips about different villages and make a news and weather report about the conditions in their chosen village. In small groups the children will produce a TV news video showing how life varies in two different villages.


A lot of the work done in Themed Learning will link to our goals in PSHCE this week. Whilst working in teams and in small groups the children will be encouraged to resolve differences by looking at alternatives, make decisions and explain their choices.They will develop these skills whilst working on their village models and creating their news reports.


Literacy –structure, layout, character description, alliteration, repetition, verbs, speech marks

Maths – kilometre, metre, centimetre, millimetre, equivalences, metric units, imperial units, decimal notation, scaling

Themed learning –village styles, landscape, news report, village life, weather


Colafonteinen, dansende rozijnen, ballonnen opblazen (jawel, opblazen) met cola, een gekookt ei in een fles toveren én er weer uit... Raar maar waar is het thema van de kinderboekenweek en daarmee van ons Boekenkamp. We doen vrijdag proeven, maken het model van een uitvinding en doen een levend ganzenbordspel. Tijdens de lesweek zullen de verschillende klassen verantwoordelijk worden gemaakt voor de uitvoering van een proef op vrijdag.

De rest van de week staat in het teken van de introductie van het nieuwe thema:

Dames en Heren, Hooggeëerd publiek...!

Alles wat met circus te maken zal de komende weken de revue passeren: functies en beroepen, een circusverhaal, krantenartikelen over het failliete Circus Renz, een actieplan om het circus  te redden... We lezen het boek De dikke bende van de Korenwolf en de vondst van het stiekeme circus.

Er is voor dit weekend geen huiswerk gegeven i.v.m. de korte week.

Fijn weekend!
