Year 5/6 Weekly Learning 22.10.18

In English we will be developing our understanding and use of figurative language by exploring poetry from World War One. We will write our own poems with similes and metaphors based on our wishes for the world. In our spelling lesson we will revise the use of the apostrophe for contractions.
In Maths, we are practising multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. We will extend our times tables knowledge by exploring multiples, too. In our arithmetic lesson, we will focus on subtraction where there are different numbers of digits in our columns, and where there is at least one zero in the bigger number, as this makes exchanging trickier.
