What Have We Achieved This Week?
 
We have began a two week unit in English all about information texts. This week, we have begun to look at the features of information texts and in particular looked at how  subordinating conjunctions can be used to extend a main clause (I SAW A WABUB!)  We have also learnt to identify between fact and opinion. 
 
In maths, we have continued our unit on addition and subtraction. This week we have looked at different methods to subtract include use of the number line and column method. 
 
In DT this week we finished our wonderful Mesolithic houses!
