We have been working very hard again this week – especially in maths. We have continued our work on equivalent fractions and demonstrated our knowledge of this by drawing/writing equivalent fractions on the playground!  

This week in English, we have been learning a new poem ‘My Little Monster’ by Elaine Morandini. The children asked questions of the poem, made predictions, used actions to help them learn the poem before finally planning and writing their own version. We have some flourishing poets in class 3ES!

Fur of black,
Eyes of brown,
He thinks he’s a king and wants a crown.
Swings at day,
Sleeps at night,
He sleeps every time he’s near the light.
— Alannah's Poem

At Carr Hill we also like to celebrate achievements outside of school. A couple of weeks ago, Jayden caught two big fish while fishing with his dad. He said that he caught them within the first ten minutes of fishing. Well done Jayden!

Noah also came into last Mon wearing not one, not two, but four silver medals for his achievements in gymnastics. Noah gained his medals in vault, high bar, floor and overall position. Well done Noah!We received fourteen handshakes and we won Class of the Week. Well done everyone!
