'The Priory, a place to learn, have fun, grow and develop in the light and love of Christ'

Friday 12th October

This week in Literacy, we finished reading 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'. The children have written their own fantasy stories based on the book. In Maths, we have been revising the names and properties of the 4 types of triangles (isosceles, scalene, equilateral and right-angled) and the 6 types of quadrilaterals (trapezium, rectangle, square, parallelogram, rhombus and kite). We also practised calculating missing angles in triangles, irregular quadrilaterals and parallelograms. In Science, we continued on our breathing rate investigations. In RE this week, for our final lesson on this topic, we wrote our own prayers.
