How did we all like the Great Science Share yesterday? There was lots of amazing things to learn and even more impressive was all of the children from all over the country and the work and questions they have put into exploring Science over the last few months. If you submitted a question or work, or even applied for your badges, let us know about it!

It was lovely, again to speak with so many of you yesterday. We really do look forward to hearing from you and it is the best part of the week!

Remember to continue your Sports Day activities! We will be watching as the points come rolling in for the teams. It is lovely seeing the whole school working on the same thing across all of the classes. Let us know what you think of it all and don’t forget to send in pics. Mrs Ferguson, as well as the staff would love to see you all taking part.

Reading: For today’s reading we would like you to pick 1 book from the books you added to your reading passport. We would then like you try create your own dictionary based off of the interesting, descriptive or difficult words that you find in your story as you read. You can create your own dictionary however you want, you can do it on paper, on a computer, on a tablet, and it’s entirely up to you! Make sure to make it bright and colourful and make sure that you leave space to keep adding to it as you read other books. It should be something to be added to whenever you read books and find words that you would like to add to your dictionary. Try to make sure you get a front cover and a few words added and remember dictionaries are in alphabetical order!

Numeracy/ Maths: Your maths for today is to continue to work on the revision work we have looked at all week. If you have completed all of the revision work so far make sure to look at Education City for any tasks you might not have done as well as completing work from our Learning Grid.
