In English this week the children have been finishing off their recounts about the trip to Twycross Zoo. They produced some fantastic work and remembered to write in first person, past tense, paragraphs and include fronted adverbials as well as time connectives. 

In Maths we have been continuing our work on measurement. The children were even able to create their own potions using different quantities of ingredients which they really enjoyed doing! 

In Science we have been learning about plants. The children began by looking at the different parts of a plant and its functions. They have now begun an experiment into the different conditions which a plant needs to survive.

On Tuesday the children went on a tour of Retford led by the Heritage Society. We started in the town hall where they had drinks and biscuits, had a tour and met the mayor! Following this, we learnt about the history of the town and visited the important historical buildings in Retford.

Our ‘Champion of the Week’ is Oscar B because of his fantastic homework project! It obviously took a lot of time and care. It was also one of the first projects to be brought in. Well done Oscar!

We received eleven handshakes.
