This week we have continued to study an extract from ‘The Ice Cat’ and have had great fun learning the text and acting it out.  Click on the video link below to watch us performing the extract.  Mrs Brown awarded the whole class a ‘Superstar Certificate’ as she was so pleased with the amount of effort everyone put into their performance.

This week we received some exciting news from ‘The Donkey Sanctuary’.   We chose to spend a portion of the profit from the ‘Christmas Enterprise’ on adopting a donkey.  The sanctuary wrote to us explaining that we now have a new donkey called ‘Harbin’.  He looks gorgeous and apparently likes socialising with children.  We will keep you updated with news about him throughout the next term.

In Maths we have started to practise our dividing using dienes.  We have been dividing two and three digit numbers by one digit numbers and have worked very hard.  
Also in Maths we have been practising the four times table using a fun song.  We have been singing and dancing along to it and if you would like to practise it at home the link is below.

Our topic this term is Romans.  We have been finding out information about Julius Caesar and once fact we discovered was that he had a son with the Queen of Egypt, Cleopatra.  The class would love to hear about how information or facts that children find out at home.  Please bring them in to share with us.
Our ‘Take 5 Ambassadors’, Jason and Ruby, have continued to lead the daily sessions.  Well done! 
Our ‘Champion of the Week’ is Alannah as she has been working very hard in all subjects and making excellent progress.  Well done Alannah!

Our new ‘Spelling Bee’ is Elijah who has excelled himself by increasing his spelling score by 8. Well done Elijah!

This week we earnt 4 handshakes and attendance was 93.3%
