In ICT this week the children continued to look at and crack codes. They sent secret messages to each other in code and had to decipher them. They must have felt like a character from Storm breaker!
In Literacy, the children are continuing with their story writing. They are writing a little and editing as they go, paying particular attention to the language choices they use, spelling and punctuation. They are working hard to create a small novel. They really are into their story writing! The next text for Literacy will be the famous poem The Highwayman. The children are also enjoying the new handwriting scheme and the read, write, ink spelling books.
In Numeracy, the children have been continuing to look at multiples and factors. They have also been learning about what a number squared and cubed is. They are currently focusing on multiplying and dividing by 100 and 1000 and remembering what happens to the place value.
Here are some good websites for practicing times tables which the children need to keep going with:
Keep up the brilliant work 5CL!
