Maths:
This week in maths we have continued to develop our addition skills.  We have been extending our reasoning and problem solving skills with addition – we had to work out what the missing values were in a range of addition calculations.  To begin with we found this a bit tricky but with a little bit of thought we soon realised how to solve them and were able to build our confidence and success.

English:
Our focus has been our hot task this week – we have built up our skills in using extended noun phrases and fronted adverbials to develop the content of our descriptions.  We finished the week demonstrating our improved skills as we wrote about an image stimulus from Rose Blanche which really impressed Mrs Hilton – she could really see the improvements since our cold task.

Another highlight of the week was performing as part of the Harvest assembly.  It was wonderful to sing in front of so many parents and friends.

Our Star of the Week this week is Gosia for the persistence and enthusiasm she has shown for Purple Mash spelling tasks.  Well done Gosia I can really see that your effort and enthusiasm is having a positive effect on your spelling.

We received 5 handshakes this week.
