Thank you to those of you who sent in pictures or objects from a holiday destination. If you have any items that could be displayed on our board linked to a particular country ( ie a chines lantern, a doll dresses in traditional costume) or if you have any books about a country and its culture please send them in.

Thank you!


The children worked hard last week to use a bar model method to help them work out addition word problems. This week we are going to move on to more tricky addition questions and some subtration problems too. Ask them to show you the method, it is a very useful tool that can be used through into ks3.


The children's writing is progressing in leaps and bounds. This week we are going to be learning how to use commas in a list. The children will be writing sentences to explain what they would pack when they went on holiday to various different locations. They will learn how to put a comma rather than lots of ands.


It is the final lesson in unit on 'Plants and Trees'. The children will be making fact files on the computers to share their knowledge and they will also get the chance to do some leaf rubbing and print making using leaves. The children will be encouraged to review their learning and share the areas they enjoyed and the areas they would like to develop further.


Indoor athletics in the hall will foucus this week on balances using body parts and balancing techniques on apparatus.


This week the class will continue to work on introducing themselves in French and maybe learning a song or rhyme too.


We began working on learning where the countries, capital cities and seas/oceans are in the UK. It was a steep learning curve as it was new to most of the class. This week we will re-visit this area of learning with a game outside. If you see a huge map in the playground you will know why it is there!


We had a good initial lesson about why we need friends, the role they have and what makes a good friend. This week we will be doing some roleplay linked to friendships, how to make new friends and how a good friend should behave in different situations.
