This week’s drop-in lunchtime math sessions will be: Wednesday : dividing fractions and mixed numbers recap.

Our week in class:

In English we have been using imagery to create detailed descriptive writing about events and settings within a short film called Alma. Joseph and Elle blew me away today with their fabulous writing. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.

Our final enterprise event was a great success thanks to the hard work of Mrs Bigg and the children. There was some great cooperation evident and a special thank you to those children that stayed behind and helped to clear up.

Elder class had a visit to KEUS as part of science week. We went into a planetarium, did taste and smell tests, discovered new and interesting animals and learnt about food chains and poo! The children’s behaviour was excellent. We used our learning behaviours of curiosity and cooperation.

World Book Day was amazing! We had some fantastic costumes and it was lovely to see the year 6s reading with the year 3s. All of the children were incredibly focussed and their behaviour was excellent.

In English we wrote biographies about famous people.

After our experience of snow last week, we wrote newspaper articles about ‘the Beast from the East’.

Daniel completed  a very informative poster about deep sea mining for his geography project. Excellent curiosity and motivation.

Elder class made Mother’s Day cards in art this week. They looked at some examples and then designed their own. We think they turned out brilliantly – hope you liked them!

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were snow days! I hope you had a fun time in the snow!

In PE we had a fun but cold hockey lesson.

In art, Elder class did careful observational drawings of flowers.

Elder class had a great time at Golden Wood cutting down trees and  snedding. We made a dead hedge fence and animal habitat piles.
