This week we came to the end of our fractions unit in maths and completed our ‘Hot task’. Everyone worked extremely hard throughout the unit and this showed as the scores increased. Our new unit is length and perimeter, and we look forward to measuring and working out the length of various objects next week.

In English we began our new book which has few words but lots of powerful illustrations. It tells the story of the Varmints who build their city where it was once peaceful in the fields, but those who love their world enough will do all they can to ensure its regeneration.

On Thursday we had fun in art creating our on rainforest animal pictures. We sketched with pencils, then used pastels to create the bold colours. We tried various techniques such as shading and blending.

We have had an excellent week starting our new English and Maths topics. In Maths we are learning about statistics and have been creating our own pictograms from a set of data we were given. We created the pictogram using sweets and had to ensure that it was labelled correctly.

The most exciting part of our work this week was Open Morning. We had lots of fun making our Viking helmets using papier Mache. A big thank you to all the parents that came to visit us.

Hope is our English star for a second time, I have been particularly impressed with her hard work and commitment when trying to improve her handwriting.

Tumas also claimed his second maths star of the week award. He has shown great attitude and effort to his work. Well done!

This week in English we continued working on ‘Arthur and the Golden Rope’. We have worked on expanded noun phrases, descriptive paragraphs and setting descriptions. Take a look below at some wonderful examples of our work.

In the middle of the grass, a murderous , scaly snake with poisonous, yellow fangs , quickly slithered towards Arthur.

One cold night, underneath the bright, gleaming stars, a small town slept quietly. All of a sudden, colossal, blue waves began crashing against the tiny, defenceless houses.

In topic, we began to learn about the food that was eaten in Viking times. We then worked in groups to read and follow a recipe to make Viking bread. Some of us thought it was delicious, others were not so keen.
