LITERACY

In Literacy this week we will be moving onto the genre of persuasion. We will analyse a range of texts to see how the writers attempt to persuade the reader. We will look at some critically acclaimed adverts and pick out the language that makes them so effective. We will build to writing our own persuasive letter. As part of our ongoing drive to improve our grammar, we will also be looking at the active and passive tense and how this too can play a part in persuasive writing.

MATHS

This week in Maths we will be investigating some of the most challenging number operations using long multiplication and long division to solve word problems. We will also be looking at strategies to make our calculations quicker and more accurate to help with mental maths. We will then finish the week with an investigation using what we have learned.

THEMED LEARNING

This term our new Themed Learning topic is water. This will be a unit that will involve a great deal of practical scientific investigation and the study of some challenging geographical case studies. In the third week we will be investigating some of the science behind water quality and purity. This will involve an investigation into how to remove impurities from water and how these are harmful to human health.

PSHCE

In PSHCE this week we will continue to focus on fostering new relationships as we have had a number of new students join our year group, creating rules and expectations for the classes and how to work together successfully.  We will reflect on what we achieved last term and discuss new personal targets for the term ahead.

De Citotoetsen zijn begonnen. Het onderdeel begrijpend lezen hebben we als eerste gedaan. Komende week komen de onderdelen, technisch lezen, spelling en woordenschat aan bod. Oefen met de woordkaartjes van ‘Spelling Laat Zien’ (toegestuurd in de laatste nieuwsbrief) nog een keer de categorieën.
