This week we were planning and writing a first draft for our cold write. We have looked at instructive writing, telling people how to complete different tasks. Important writing skills to use when doing this are time connectives, lists of equipment and specific adjectives to instruct the reader. Our instructive writing told the reader how to cook rice perfectly.

“I enjoy instructive writing as it is very different to the story writing we have been previously focussed on,” explained Kayleigh.


We have been looking at proper and improper fractions and how to change them into mixed numbers. An improper fraction is when the numerator is bigger than the denominator e.g. 4/3. We were able to use fractions to work out different quantities of a number for example 2/3 of 15 is 10.

“Using fractions is very interesting because I liked using improper fractions to find mixed numbers,” explained Louis.


We have been learning how to say various French words including animals, counting and different objects. We have learnt the words using call and response techniques and also by using pictures to remind us of the words. We have also learnt a finger rhyme in French which we would love to share with you at home.

“Learning French is very enjoyable because we use different rhymes and puzzles to help us,” said Alisha excitedly.
