Preparing our Enterprise Produce: On Wednesday 13th December, we are expecting to be visited by lots of parents and friends who will be coming to school to find out about our Enterprise Project. We’re hoping that they might like to buy some of our ‘Sweet Treat Cookies’ which are a bargain at 30p each of 4 for £1.

Survival Day: We battled the elements this week as we tackled a range of team building activities and gained some first-hand survival experience. At the end of our day, we returned to class tired and happy, but smelling strongly of smoke!

This week we collected a creditable 11 handshakes, but the winning class scored 29.

King of the Cloud Forests: Our picture shows us matching text written by Michael Morpurgo to our mind-map of his writing. Our ambition is to magpie a little of his style so that we can apply it within our own drafting.

Welcome to 5 Jacques Cousteau Blog (Mr Beswarick’s class)

Our attendance this week was 98.1% so we were able to collect our 6th Good Attendance Voucher.

Maths: Our discussion has focussed upon factors. We have been investigating where we should place a number on our grid depending upon whether we judge it to be a prime or a composite number.

Science: Within our work on survival, we have been thinking about how fossils form. We set out to find a way to make a mould and to cast a fossil so that we could study it closely. Our next step will be to take on the role of a palaeontologist as we carefully separate the mould from the cast!

Maths Haribo Challenge Winners: Congratulations to all four children who made plausible suggestions about what our graph could be explaining. (For those who still need a suggestion, think about a bath filling with water.) Our new challenge involves Sylvester and Claude. Remember, you have to be in it to win it!

This week we collected a creditable 18 handshakes, but the winning class scored 23.

Our attendance this week was 100% so we were joint winners of the competition and able to collect our 5th Good Attendance Voucher.

We are learning to shared read our Poem of the Moment entitled ‘The Listeners’. Within our Guided Reading groups, we have been working out how to add the expression and intonation so that we can share the lone traveller’s emotion.

Anti-Bullying Week: Our discussion has focussed upon what bullying looks like and how we should deal with it. We agree that keeping quiet about bullying is not an option, whichever week of the year it happens to be!

A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helped us to support Children in Need.

This week we collected 9 handshakes.
