We are very excited about our trip to the Shanghai Museum and the Shanghai Fabric Making Museum on Wednesday 9 March. Students who normally have school lunch will be provided with a packed lunch on the day. All other students will need to provide their own lunch. You may pack an additional drink and small healthy (nut-free) snack should you wish to. Students will be required to wear uniform as normal on the day, but should wear comfortable walking shoes and a jacket. We will be leaving school at approximately 9.00am and returning to school in the afternoon in time for the usual end of day arrangements.
In Literacy we will continue with the board game project. The children will be under pressure to agree on the rules as well as the final designs for their game by the end of the week. We will also look at the features of writing a formal letter and identify these features in a variety of examples. The children will then apply their learning by writing their own letter to a board game manufacturer.
In Maths this week, we will be reviewing and reflecting on fractions as well as additionand subtraction of fractions. At the start of the week we will discuss identifying common denominators and then work on various methods of how to add and subtract fractions when denominators are the same and when they are different. We will also continue discussing mathematical terminology and mental approaches to maths.
In Themed Learning we will be learning about healthy lifestyles. The children will develop their understanding of what makes a healthy lifestyle, including the benefits of exercise and healthy eating. The will identify things that they are proud of and share their achievements as well as set personal goals. This will be discussed in the context of the Silk Road. The children will investigate what merchants may have eaten along the Silk Road and they will design a healthy menu for merchants based on their knowledge of a balanced diet and what food was traded at this time.
