Fair's Fair by Leon Garfield

This half term we will be taking a look at Fairs Fair, a book about a boy from extreme poverty roaming the streets, when he shows unbelievable kindness resulting in a special opportunity opening up for him. All of our English work will be linked to this spectacular book and will encourage the children to open their imaginations.

In English, we will be focusing on planning, drafting and editing our writing and learning new gammatical concepts alongside solidifying prior learnt grammar knowledge. It is important that we are confident writers.

In Mathematics, we will be taking a look at long multiplication and understand short division, we will then be moving onto fractions. It is important that you learn your 12 timetables inside out to help you tackle this part of your learning head on, so lots of practicing at home.... you  can do it! Make sure you are using timestable rockstars to help you.
