In English this week, we have continued with our Goodies vs Baddies unit. We have been exploring different vocabulary to describe the actions of Peter Pan and Captain Hook and developing our thesaurus skills.
In Maths, we have started our Fractions unit. This week we have been exploring a new fractions problem. To develop our skills we have been learning how to add and subtraction fractions and finding fractions of amounts.
In RE this week, to begin our Revelations unit, we have learnt about the transfiguration. We have explored the links between the scripture and art work.
We had a visit from, Indie, a guide dog and their trainer on Tuesday. The children found it funny to watch Miss Burch and Miss Stapley order numbers blindfolded, but this showed how difficult simple tasks can be without sight. We had the opportunity to learn about the positive impact a guide dog can have, ask questions and stroke Indie.
Please continue to encourage your children to take part in the reading challenge; it has been lovely to see so many already ticking off the books. The children are already enthusiastic about the performance poetry; we can’t wait to see their performances later in the term.
