This week in maths we have been practising counting in steps to try and achieve our targets so we can set some new ones.
Here is Jessica, she counted in 5’s really well.

We have also been practising every morning to learn to spell some number name words.
Here is Bobby impressing us with his spelling. He has worked very hard to remember some very tricky spellings.

We have been learning about positional words, for example naming where people come in a race.

In English this week we have been following instructions to help us make lovely Diva lamps and cards for the Hindu Festival of Light.  We read the story of Rama and Sita and we loved it. We asked lots of questions about the different characters, discussing who was a goody and who was a baddy.


Mrs Alford visited us this week with £30 cash!
She is giving each class £30 to begin a Christmas Crafty Challenge!
We have to try and think of something to make and sell at our Christmas Fair, and make a profit. The profit can then be spent on anything we want for our own class.

 
For this week’s homework we asked you to think about what things would be good to make and sell.
We will be discussing this further next week. 

We had a good time visiting the Book Fair. We spotted some books by our Author of the Moment: Julia Donaldson.

In ICT we enjoyed using our mouse control skills and made some great firework pictures to go with our brilliant paintings we did last week.

This week each class were asked to choose two Eco Champions to work with Mr Grayson.
We chose Hope and Bobby. 
They have been to a couple of meetings and fed back some great ideas: turn off the lights when we leave the classroom and make sure we turn off the taps when we have washed our hands. 

This week’s Superstars are Jessica for working hard on her maths target and Alfie for having a much better attitude towards his learning. Well done!

We earned 10 handshakes over the last two weeks.
Lasts weeks attendance was 90%
