This week in English, we will be looking at new stories with a moral and will be comparing it to the story The Fox and the Raven. We will look closely at speech marks and begin to write our own shared story with a moral 

Maths  

Over the next few weeks, we will be concentrating on place value, looking at numbers up to 1000. This week, will be focusing on partitioning numbers to 1000. We will also continue to practise the place values of thousands, hundred, tens and ones. I would encourage your children to practise looking at numbers up to 1000, allowing them to partition the number given. Please look at the model below which might be useful

Keep recording your reading daily reading in your reading records/school diary and write three comments about the book you are currently reading. It is important that an adult signs your reading record. I will collect your reading records every Monday and Friday and check.
