What have we been doing this week?

Literacy

In Literacy, we have written sentences with embedded relative clauses. We will then move onto planning our biographical recount.

Maths

In Maths, we have completed our first national test paper, as well as the first set of online assessments in order to generate targets moving forward. This week, we will be looking at calculating area and perimeter before moving onto co-ordinates.
