What Have We Achieved This Week?
 
This week in English we have learnt about the features and content of newspaper reports. We have practised some of these features, including the use of direct speech as witness quotes, within the context of our class story Varjak Paw. We have interviewed each other in role as some of the 'street cats' and written witness accounts of the mysterious Vanishings. 
 
In Maths this week, we have began a new unit on fractions. We have learn to identify unit and non-unit fractions, practised making wholes and began to explore tenths. 
 
In our topic work, we have continued to make sketch maps of the local area, using keys and symbols to make them clear and easy to read.
