Sycamore Class Newsletter 28.4.23

This week in in English, we have continued our unit on speeches. We have focused on the different features of persuasive speeches including rhetorical questions and emotive language. Today we have tried to use some of these features to write our response to a speech.

In Maths, we have been learning more about decimals. We have looked at how hundredths are represented as fractions and decimals and on a place value chart. Today, we have looked at dividing a 1 or 2-digit number by 100.

In Science, the children enjoyed looking at food labels and finding the nutritional values of different foods. We have also looked at things needed to survive and be healthy and carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.

Here is our topic web outlining what we will be learning this term:

SYACMORE Topic Web ‘How was Shrewsbury shaped’

The children have gone home today with a piece of card to create a crown for the King’s Coronation and their homework this half term.

Well done to this week’s Golden Certificate Winner, Evie. She has had a good week where she has tried hard and made good choices. Well done.

Next week, we have our trip on Wednesday. Children will need to wear school uniform with sturdy shoes or trainers. If possible, please send them with a backpack to carry their lunch and water bottle. Thank you.

Due to our trip being on Wednesday we will have PE on Thursday next week.

We hope you have a lovely weekend and enjoy the bank holiday.
