What have we been busy doing this term so far !

Literacy: The children have been investigating myths from different cultures. We have read a wide variety of myths, retold stories, sequenced events and learnt some interesting new vocabulary. We have even created our own mythical creatures and used some sophisticated vocabulary to describe them.


Maths: We have been learning about fractions of numbers and shapes, properties of 3D shapes and experienced using directional language.


Topic: We have been completing our studies and investigations relating to our 'Going Green' topic and 'Plants' in science.

Next Week

On Monday the school is closed due to the Dutch public holiday 'King's Day'.


We will be focusing on our Literacy and Numeracy studies to complete units of work.


The first Snack Box homework of the term will be set on Friday 24th April, the due date for completion is Friday 8th May.
