In English we have been continuing to learn the story of ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ with actions. Watch our video below to see how we perform the first half of the story.
Children should be practising this at home, performing for family members, as often as they can.

We spent the afternoon being artists and using wood, wire and pliers to make our own ‘Beanstalk Sculptures’.  
“I thought it was great fun and I loved my finished design!” Elijah Kirk.
We had to put a wire into a piece of log and then twist other wires around it to create a beanstalk shape.  We then added leaves from different mediums to add colour and shape.

Ruby enjoyed playing a rounding game

We have all been working very hard this week, especially in maths where we have been learning about rounding numbers to the nearest 10 or 100.  Children can practise this at home using cut up pieces of paper with the digits 1 to 9 on, asking an adult or friend to create a two or three digit number and then rounding them to the nearest ten or hundred.

Alfie very kindly brought in a branch with conkers on to show the class.  This started a great discussion about conkers and what animals eat them, where they can be found etc.  Thank you Alfie!

Our ‘Champion of the Week’ is Evie because her work is always beautifully presented and a pleasure to mark.
