Research has been in full flow this week as the pupils have chosen their own animals to discover more about in our topic. We have had a huge array of animals, from little hamsters, endangered snow leopards to the Australian quokka, which Mr Woodward had never heard of before! We are looking forward to hearing about all the amazing facts and information that the pupils come up with throughout our topic and we are so pleased and impressed with the enthusiasm and hard work that has gone into it so far.
In our writing we have begun to develop our persuasive writing. We looked at recycling and have created some very informative and persuasive posters to encourage people to recycle. The pupils love of the environment and wildlife really came through when we discussed littering and recycling and the effects on the world and the posters they created really reflected that passion.
We have been continuing to explore times tables in numeracy, looking at dividing by 6. The pupils have been able to link strategies from previous tables to dividing by 6 and this has helped them immensely. In maths we have continued to explore shapes, both 2D and 3D, and we have been identifying the properties of shapes as well as having a lot of fun trying to pronounce quadrilateral and parallelogram!
Children in Need takes place next week and on Friday 13th November there will be a colourful Dress Down Day for £1. There is also a Duck Race in which pupils can pay 50p to choose one of the ducks which will then be raced on the night of Children in Need. For a small donation there are also Children in Need wristbands.
PE days Monday and Friday.
Homework is posted on Teams on Mondays. Pupils who are unable to regularly access Teams can request paper copies if that is more suitable.
Thank you for all of your continued support and hard work, have a fantastic weekend!
Miss Clark and Mr Woodward
