Maths
This week in maths we have been doing multiplication. But no ordinary multiplication, we have been multiplying with two numbers (which we have been doing very successfully and confidently). We are now ready for next week’s challenge.

English
In English this week, we have been focusing on spelling and symbolism. We have had a lot of light bulb moments, which was very satisfying for Miss Footitt. We have based the symbolism on the short animation of the Alchemist’s Letter! In spelling we have been practising lots of handwriting to.

Topic
In topic we have been doing the Scream Machine. We have been practising to draw our horses from the merry go round, which we have very much enjoyed.

Maths
The main features of maths that we’ve covered this week are the ending of the place value unit, and the start of the 4 operations unit! We had been working very hard with our minus and place value process, but unfortunately we have to come to a close. Now we are working on + and – numbers, which we are doing quite well at. We are enjoying maths very much, and cannot wait for next week’s lessons!

English
In English we have been finishing and checking our biographies. Under the pressure of the cold task, we know it was coming soon, and come soon it did with the Alchemist’s Letter. Miss Footitt told us that the Chilli Challenges were: retelling the film as a story, continuing the story or a free write of our choice.

Have a listen to the song we learned in Spanish this week!

Topic
In topic, we have been focusing on Scream Machine. We have been learning about fairs and theme parks, and all the rides. We are now learning to construct our own ride, using the main materials. We cannot wait to make them and construct them so that they actually spin round!

On Wednesday, we celebrated European Languages day. The children learned new facts, took a quiz, learned the Zorba dance in addition to a challenge of making the classroom more multi-lingual. Here’s what they produced.

Meet our new class breathing ambassadors for our class. They are doing a fab job at calming the class down after lunchtimes with their breathing techniques.

This week we have been continuing to work on place value in maths and learn the grammar skills such as conjunctions, parenthesis and tenses so that we are fully prepared for our HOT write next week.

We learned that Scream Machine is our new topic title. We will be learning all about fairgrounds, forces, levers, pulleys, electricity and much much more. This week kicked off with finding out what we already know and what we would like to find out about. We even got to have a go with some Victorian toys.

Well, we have had a fabulous first full week back. Maths is all about place value and English is about biographies.

One of our first important jobs this week was to assign class members to new job roles. Meet our representatives.
