Year 4/5 - Elm

Weekly update


Friday, 18th January, 2019

This week the children have been learning how to write diary recounts using The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.  We are loving this book!  We are currently up to chapter 7 and will be reading the next two chapters this week coming.  Some children might like to read along with us at home - but please don't read ahead!  We are starting another block of work on multiplication and division, and the children in year 4 have started a new science block: states of matter and Year 5s are finishing forces work.    


Key dates:

Parents' evenings:  26th, 27th and 28th February (forms not out yet!)



If you don't have access to the internet, your child can complete homework in school.  Please let us know, as Friday is too late to inform us. 


Spelling homework:

This week year 4s learnt how to spell words with eigh , ey (ay sounds)

Year 5s had to work out if words were spelt with ie or ei
