In english, we have been writing our own non-chronological reports about the London Eye. We went on the computers to undertake research and we found out lots of facts together. In maths, we have been adding and subtracting multiples of 10 to a 2 digit number. At first, we were using base 10 or place value counters but now we can all use sticks and dots. Others have been looking at number bonds to 10. Most afternoons we have been rehearsing for our performance on Thursday. We are all so excited!! During PE, we have been learning how to play a mini cricket game and this week the balls got smaller. We had to try and hit a tennis ball. In assembly, we managed to get 100% attendance therefore we got 15 minutes extra play (however the weather has been so hard Miss Pickup let us watch 15 mins of Alvin and the Chipmunks).
The core value this week was responsible and this was awarded to Jamie.
The Head Teacher’s Award was given to Esmae for an amazing non-chron report on the London Eye with lots of detailed facts.

We have been so busy this week! Miss Pickup gave our parts out for the Harvest Festival play which will be on Thursday 18th October at 10am at St George’s Church. We have been learning our lines and singing the songs in preparation. When we were doing our mile walk which we complete every afternoon, we spotted a tiny hedgehod. It was so cute! Miss Quinn came out to save the day and put it in it’s hedgehog home which is located in the Forest. We gave it some fresh food and water. It was starving!! In maths, we have been doing our number bonds to 10, 20 and/or 100. During english, we have been looking into non-chronological reports. As a class, we identified that our new book is non-fiction and full of facts. In PE, we have been doing mini cricket which is so fun!
The core value this week was unqiue and this was awarded to Harry.
The Head Teacher’s Award was given to Connor for his hard effort in completing tasks on time and to his best ability.

During computing this week, we sent a class email to a Queen and she replied! We had to find out some research in order to reply to her. In science, we undertook an investigation. We have been exploring materials and we wanted to investigate ice. We put it in a variety of places and decided why it melted in certain places. Throughout our english lessons, we have been working really hard to improve our sentences by adding adjectives. In maths, we have been looking at length and mass. Did you know there is 100cm in a 1m? What a lovely turn out at the Macmillan coffee morning for such a great cause. All the children thoroughly enjoyed the cakes! Due to the coffee morning taking place on Friday, there was no celebration assembly.

This week, we have been learning all about Paddington and his visit to St Paul’s. We found out that St Paul’s was ruined in the Great Fire of London in 1666. In maths, we have been counting in our 2s and 10s. Everyday Miss Pickup gets us to shout them out in order for us to remember them. Miss Pickup wants us to learn them at home so we become a maths genius! In science, we undertook an investigation and tested out different materials to see if they were changeable. During topic, we have been putting the Great Fire of London in order to see when the events occurred. In art, we are continuing to draw our beautiful pictures of the shard.
The core value this week was supportive and this was awarded to Charlie.
The Head Teacher’s Award was given to Taryn for amazing problem solving skills in maths.
