Calendar Day was a roaring success as always the children loved the opportunity to dress up and have a bit of themed fun. A big thank you to all the parents who came in to help you did an amazing job!
We will be going on a trip to the British Museum on the 30th November, and each class will need 3 extra adults; if you are available to help on that date can you please get in touch with your class teacher. We will be travelling by train and each child will need to bring a packed lunch. More details will be provided closer to the time.
It was lovely to see you all at parents evening. We hope you all have a lovely half term.
This week, the children have planned and performed their play scripts for ‘The Highwayman’. Carefully selecting tone and actions that reflect the personalities of the characters.
After the break we will be looking at a book called ‘Way Home’.
In Maths, we have begun to explore multiplication through multiples and factors. We have represented these ideas in a number of was including the use of arrays. We have also explored common multiples, which will be very useful to us later in the year when we look at fractions. Finally, we explored prime numbers and worked on identify as many prime numbers as possible.
We have spent this week creating a range of model, which will be used in each classes documentary/museum.
Hasper have also produced a diary entry in role as Howard Carter describing the first time that he entered the tomb of king Tut.
Children have been set a reading challenge for the half term which will be due in the first Tuesday back.
Have a lovely week,
Irene and Jack
