WB 15.05.23

This week in year 3/4 we have really focussed on our mental health and practised the different strategies that can help us improve our mental health. We have completed a range of activities, as well as enjoyed concentrating on the simple importance of breathing and taking time to do things that make us feel better and happier. In English, we have been enjoying our descriptive writing unit and been developing our knowledge of writing techniques to help us rival Roald Dahl. In Maths, we have been continuing to learn about fractions and time. We have been grateful for the lovely weather, which has allowed us to appreciate the outdoors and enjoy rounders in PE.
