week 10/10/16-14/10/16

Please check our blog every week, as we will be posting information about our learning and tasks to complete for home learning.

This week in literacy we are learning about stories from another culture, focussing on story structure and retelling the story. In numeracy, we are finding all the number bonds of numbers to at least 5, and understanding time language. In topic, we are finding the answer to the challenge question: Has Greece always looked the way it looks today?
