The children have launched with gusto back into their learning and half term seems a long time ago already.
This next half term in English we are taking our lead from the COP 26 conference and focussing on a theme of protecting our world, starting with a study of a beautiful story by Jackie Morris called The Snow Leopard. We shall be really considering the sentence structures that create different senses of pace and emotion and writing our own stories using a different animal in a different setting. Following on from that, we shall look closer to home at some of the species that are declining on Dartmoor and produce persuasive leaflets for the community to encourage changes that can help recovery.
In Maths, we are continuing to develop our calculation skills with a focus on fractions.
This coming week will also involve us preparing our poetry to contribute to the Remembrance Service next Sunday. The expression that they put in on their first attempt was superb. I'm sure that they will do the town proud next weekend.
