How brilliant does the children's artwork look on display? I wish we could have fitted them all on because they were great! Lots of children and staff have walked past the display and taken the time to stop and look, admiring the different pictures from different angles.
In Maths this week, we have been learning about length and perimeter. The children have been able to convert between metres and kilometres, and began to calculate perimeter of rectangle using a grid. Next week they will build on this learning and calculate perimeter of rectilinear shapes, deducing the lengths of missing sides from the information they already have.
We've had some brilliant creative writing in English this week as we continue our sequence of work based on the book 'Beowulf the Monster Slayer'. Next week, the children will be writing their own chapter where their monster is defeated by their hero. Our art lesson this week links in with English as the children are beginning work on some oil pastel dragon eyes. Watch this space for photos!
In history, we learnt about the heptarchy. This was the arrangement of England into 7 kingdoms by the Anglo-Saxons. It was a very turbulent and violent time in British history so we learnt about which weapons were used in battles and what battles might have been like. Archaeology has uncovered clues to this.
Well done to the seven children who represented our school in the cross country this afternoon.
