In English  we have used our text maps to helkp us write our Lincoln Castle Recount. We continue to work hard to write our letters correctly and make sure all of our sentences have capital letters and full stops. 
We all need to try hard to use our Sound  Mats to help us with our spellings.
Please remember you have these at home to practise with.

This week in Captain Cook’s Class ……….

In maths we have been learning how to measure carefully using cubes and rulers. We had to measure hair for Rapunzel and make sure it was all the same length. We also had to make tails for our dragons and measure them to a given length. 

In English we have used our text maps to help us write a fiction text about the Retford Ridge-back Dragon.         

We have been working hard to improve our writing, thinking hard about our spellings, grammar and punctuation.

We had a fabulous day at Lincoln Castle on Thursday. Thank you to the helpers for coming with us.

Here we are taking part  in lots of fun activities at Lincoln Castle.

There is a write up about our trip on the school website. Take a look at what we got up to. 
We all behaved very well and enjoyed a very sunny, fun day out. 

Here we are planting out onions.

We are taking part in the school competition run by Carr Hill Gardening Club. Last year we had to grow potatoes, this year it is onions!
We are hoping that our home-made bird scarers will help to stop the birds eating our onions! Thanks to Ruben for coming up with the idea of needing a scarecrow!  Fingers crossed we might grow some great onions!
