We have very focused this week, so thank you and well done!

In Literacy this week, we have been working on using formal and informal language. We started by understanding what each type of language is used for and wrote our own examples for formal and informal sentences. We then applied this to letter writing; in 'The Railway Children' the children write a letter to the old gentleman on the train. Our job was to decide what might be in that letter based on what has happened in the story so far. We decided the letter needed to be formal and detailed. Next week we will be taking examples of our letters and working on improving the vocabulary we have used and adding additional detail that is appropriate for the letter.

In maths we have completed our unit on multiplication and division; we have worked on long multiplication, multiplying a 4 digit number by 2 digit numbers. we then moved on to division, dividing 4 digit numbers by a 1 digit number, using formal written method starting with remainders. Some of us then moved on to dividing numbers that require us to use decimal numbers. Next week we are moving on to time with a lot of problem solving activities based on train time tables.

This week, we have put our learning journey to one side and focused on our businesses. We have created our games and products, advertised them using posters and the marketing managers got up in Friday's assembly to sell their product to the rest of the school. Wednesday 25th November, we will be setting up our games in the classroom ready for the first customers.

In P.E. we got our hearts racing again, moving in different directions and in different ways. We then put our football skills to the test (including me and Miss. Smith); we played football tennis and then a big game of football with the whole class. Next week we will continue to improve our fitness whilst also doing some athletics activities.

Next week, we will be doing some Geography looking at our local area and comparing it to a contrasting area in the UK. In Science we will be looking at friction and air resistance and its impact on various aspects of life.
A big well done to all the footballers who played in the semi-finals on Thursday night, it was a great match to watch and they all played extremely well. I was really impressed with the sportsmanship displayed by each child; they were fantastic representatives for Wrenbury Primary School. Although we didn't get through to the finals it was a very close match and they should be proud of themselves!

[Reminders:

As the children have no Literacy homework this week, I expect times tables to be learnt well, spellings to be done every day if not more and reading at least once a day.

Learning our times tables are really important as they underpin many aspects of our maths lessons!!
