Well... I think I was right in last week's blog about the weather changing. We've certainly had some rain this week! Please remember coats. We are keeping the windows open for ventilation and the classroom can feel chilly, so please send children in with a suitable base layer (long sleeved top for example) to wear under their uniform for extra warmth. It is better this than wearing coats indoors.
In English this week, the children have written their own versions of Meerkat Mail, based on their own individual plans. We've had stories about blackbirds visiting golden eagles, sheep staying with cows and even grass snakes spending time with pythons! They have been really creative for this first piece of writing.
In Maths, we have continued our unit on Place Value and have spent a lot of time practising rounding. We have one more week on Place Value where we will be learning about negative numbers and Roman numerals.
In History, we learnt the story of Boudicca and her rebellion against the Romans when they invaded Britain. The children produced some great cartoons to tell this story. We had a thought provoking Science lesson this week learning about what happens to the particles in solids, liquids and gases when they are heated up. Finally, we have discussed the qualities of positive relationships in PSHE.
New spellings have been sent out and a new style of homework. Please choose 3 activities and complete by the dates given. I had a look in the reading folders today and have noted how many times each child has read - please keep reading daily at home and practising times tables too.
Have a lovely weekend,
