A great week for Charles Darwin as we won ‘Class of the Week’ for the second time this year! Great job guys, your lovely manners and willingness to help others are clearly noticed across the school! Well done to our superstars of the week, Phoebe and Hollie!

In maths this week, we have continued our hard work on multiplication and division. We have spent time multiplying and dividing numbers by 10,100 and 1000. We have done so using a place value chart to help us move our numbers into the correct PV column.


In English, we have spent time starting to empathise with some of the characters from our class-reading book ‘King of the Cloud Forrest’. We have spent time thinking and discussing how various situations in the story may have made the character feel and we have put together mind maps for the various characters using many adjectives to describe their personality.

In reading, we have spent time reading, discussing and visioning the poem ‘The listeners’ written by our poet of the moment Walter De La Mare. Everyone has really enjoyed discussing what they predict may happen in the next part of the poem or what the traveller means when he claims to have ‘kept his word’.

On Friday, we began to perform the poems in groups, creating freeze frames to show the poem as well as reciting it. Everyone was very keen and involved and this task and everyone received a Marvellous Me for their great teamwork!
