We have had started learning about the famous author, Anthony Browne, this week and in particular a story called ‘Zoo’.  We have read the story without images and predicted what we think could happen as well as finding evidence in the plot to summarise the authors’ views and opinions about animals being kept in a zoo.  

Our ‘Champion of the Week’ is Faith for all her continued hard work and effort in lessons.  Well done Faith!
 

In maths we have continued learning about capacity and worked hard to improve our skills on how to solve word problems involving litres and millilitres.  This was a real challenge for some of us but we persevered and worked hard to solve the activities.

Our topic at the moment is ‘Plants’ and we have set up an experiment to investigate what plants need in order to thrive.  We have ensured it is a fair test by using the same size pots, having a ‘control’ plant and measuring the amount of water the plants receive daily.  We have predicted what the results will show.

Sports Day is Friday 23rd June and we have split the class into four teams and children have selected the races they wish to compete in.  All children will need to have their outdoor PE kit at school next week with appropriate footwear ie trainers not indoor pumps.  Please ensure children have a hat or cap, and a drink of water on Friday 23rd June.
