We’ve had a busy first week back and have settled in nicely. In English we’ve begun looking at the story ‘The Tunnel’ and created our own description using similes and expanded noun phrases. In maths we’ve looked at statistics focusing on bar charts while in topic we’ve begun our new unit looking at dinosaurs.
This week in maths we have been subtracting using the column method and regrouping hundreds and tens, while in English we have been writing our own fables linked to the environment. In topic we have retold the story of St Alban and in faith and belief we have continued to explore the story of Noah.

Design and make your own ‘Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar’. Remember to think about how many days there are for the Christmas advent and make sure each day has something different for someone in your family to do.
Here is an example:
Tell someone you love them today.
Make someone laugh with a joke.
Play with somebody who looks lonely.
Help make lunch or dinner.
Do some yoga.

Create your own word problems. Miss Gardiner and Miss Hind would like to be able to use the bar model to be able to solve them.
Please bring homework books back week beginning 17th December 2018.
This week in maths we have been regrouping ones and tens when adding two 3-digit numbers. In English we have been writing our own play scripts using a range of punctuation marks including brackets and colons while in PE we have been developing the skill of being able to pivot quickly, with a ball, so we can apply it to a game.
Thank you for all donations to help the PTA with the Christmas fair.

Subordinating conjunctions and clauses.
Subordinating conjunctions: because, who, while, where

Create a fact file about your perfect friend. Describe their personality explaining how and why they are such a good friend.
Maths challenge: Create your own rhyme for the two times tables.
This week in English we have been looking at using subordinate conjunctions to create subordinate clauses. In maths we have identified fact families and used this knowledge to solve missing number operations. As a class we have begun to discuss the internet and how to use it safely.
Homework will be set next week.
We have achieved so much in the last eight weeks, from exploring a new coding app ‘Hopscotch’, where we got to use inputs to create an algorithm for a character, to writing our own limericks. In maths we have been exploring mental strategies for addition and subtraction while in science this week we looked at how we could answer a scientific question.
Over the holidays we would like children to continue to develop some of these skills by keeping a food diary for a day or two. They can present their work in any way they like i.e. report style, pictures and explanations. We talked about identifying some of the nutritional content in the items they eat and using the traffic light system.
Please can we ask that homework is returned the first week back.
Have a lovely break and we look forward to seeing you all after half term.
This week in English the children have been looking at features for a set of instructions and have been focusing on imperative verbs while in maths they have been using the strategy ‘think 10/100’ to support their mental addition. All children enjoyed their visit from Warburton’s and know a lot about healthy foods.
