This week in maths we covered more equivalent fractions and focused on converting fractions, decimals and percentages. Many of the children forgot how to do this so it took a few lessons to recall what to do. Most have the right idea now which is good to see.
In English, we looked at newspaper reports again. Children made reports to describe the specifics of Canada Day, as it was on the 1st of July.
The school choir was out performing at the Sage in Gateshead on Thursday. It sounds like they did an excellent job and enjoyed themselves, so well done choir members!
Our Summer Fayre was a success this past Friday too. It was nice to see such a good turnout of students and parents.
Our school Sports Day is on Tuesday, so be sure to wear your PE kit and bring plenty of water and nutritious food for your lunch!
Thursday is Cultural Heritage Day so members of the school choir, orchestra and Andrew's singing group will be busy during the afternoon. I'm sure you will all be great!

Homework this week is a chance to describe a rainforest scene, which is our new topic! Be sure to include plenty of adjectives and adverbs, along with proper punctuation and spelling. Many children received HPs last week for the good effort they put into their homework so be sure to keep that effort up for this week! Want to look like a know-it-all when we cover some of the main topics within our rainforest unit? Check out this website to get some facts before we learn them!
Have a great weekend!
