We have produced some wonderful pieces of work this week in English and Maths, and worked very hard as well as having lots of fun.
In Maths we have continued to learn about shapes and their properties and had great fun making 3-dimensional shapes using cocktail sticks and midget gems.  Ruby and Logan made a square based pyramid with the correct number of vertices and edges. Look at the fabulous shapes we made!

Also in Maths this week we have been learning about lines.  Not only have we learnt the names of different lines but also practised creating them using masking tape.  Well done for all your hard work 3ES.

In English we have worked very hard, through the sun beating down, to plan and write a newspaper report about deforestation.  The children focused upon using quotes in their writing and punctuating them correctly as well as facts they have learnt in their topic lessons.  Well done for all the effort and hard work this week children.
We had a lovely afternoon break this week when we received a surprise in exchange for one of the attendance certificates our class has gained over the past half-term.  Mrs Parsons brought everyone a piece of delicious chocolate pudding which we enjoyed outside in the shade.  Thank you Mrs Parsons for our treat!

Jayden brought in a medal and trophy he was presented with at Retford United’s Presentation Evening.  He is a member of the Retford United Under 8's Football Team and gained the trophy for the most improved player in the team over the year.  Well done Jayden!

We had ‘Crazy Hair Day’ as well this week.  We all got to wear our hair in any style or fashion in order to raise money for the PTA.

Our ‘Champion of the Week’ is Alfie for his improved concentration and effort in lessons across the curriculum.  Well done Alfie!

We earnt 4 handshakes this week.
