Here is a break down of what we will be covering in Blackfriars this week:

Maths– We will be finishing our addition and subtraction revision by adding and subtracting amounts of money. Towards the end of the week we will be learning about fractions.

English– We will be continuing to work from a new book, Escape from Pompeii by Christina Balit, and will continue our retelling of the story. We will then move to letter writing, still related to our text.

Reading– We will continue to enjoy our class story The Christmasaurus by Tom Fletcher and we will continue Guided Reading sessions in small groups.

PE– We will be continuing Groovy Gymnastics, focusing on jumping, rolling and balancing and also beginning to play invasion games.

Topic– We will be continuing our topic Active Planet and thinking about the eruption of Vesuvius and the destruction of Pompeii.

Art-We will be thinking about colour mixing and using this to design Jackson Pollock style volcano paintings.

RE– We will be thinking about Lent and moving on to a series of lessons about Easter.
