Welcome back everyone! We have had a lovely week catching up and learning together in person.
In maths this week we looked at two step function machines; working through the operations to work out the output. If we were given a problem with only an output we had to use the inverse (opposite) operation to work out the input.
We also learned how to solve some simple equations, using letters to represent a missing value in a calculation.
We finished our whole class novel – Kensuke’s Kingdom – we thoroughly enjoyed reading this book together! We made a time line of Kensuke’s life.
We learned about the features of an effective advert and wrote our own adverts for brussel sprouts.
We practiced the spelling rule ei makes the long vowel sound a e.g. vein, eight, neighbour. Please see teams for our spelling lists this week.
We would like to start literature circles soon, however, we are still waiting on a few novels to be returned to quarantine before we can issue new books. Please could you bring in any reading books that are at home on Monday. We also need any red literature circle folders returned. Many thanks!

Have a lovely weekend,
