What a lovely sunny start to the week-Let’s hope it keeps up!

In English, the class will be focusing on our persuasive writing and will be writing a letter towards the end of the week to persuade Nemo not to swim too far into the ocean. We will be focusing on the main features of a persuasive text.

In maths, we will begin our unit on properties of shapes. Over the next few days, we will learn about turns and angles as well as comparing angles.

On Wednesday, we will have transition day from 11.00-12.30. Class 3 will meet their Year 4 teacher, Mrs Miller. This will give them a chance to get used to a new classroom as well as what will be expected of them next year. How exciting!

We will be having another times tables challenge on Friday. I am delighted to see so many of you trying so hard! Well done!

What a busy week we had last week! Firstly, let me just say that the children involved in the GALA concert did really well along with the children involved in the Bournemouth Music Festival. Well done!

Moving on to our learning-last week in maths, we were working on the time. We will continue this work over the next few days. Pupils need practice at home telling time past and to the hour. In writing, we finished our non-chronological reports about The Manchester Ridgeback and will be focusing on recounts of familiar stories throughout this week.

In science, we will be exploring the different parts of a flowering plant. In art we will be sketching in the style of Lowry and also working on our tennis skills in PE.

English homework was handed out yesterday, and maths homework will be given out on Thursday as usual! Everyone is making a good effort with their home learning-so keep up the great work!
