Times Table Guidance:
In Elm class we have been working on information texts. The children have been shown how to edit and change a piece of writing from the internet so that the information in the piece can be written in their language and style.
Children will be given an example of a piece of text that has been changed so that it could be written in “child-speak “, and a piece of writing on a subject that they wish to write about.
Children do not have to complete any writing for this week's spelling homework but just learn the spellings.
