This week in English, we have been using editing stations to edit and improve our hot write on discussion texts. Now we have made it extra fantastic, using our personal targets to show miss Footitt how much we have improved over the year. We have also done some more work on subjunctive mood. Even though we found it tricky at first, we have now achieved our target to use them correctly. We cannot wait to practise more over the holidays and come back even more positive.

Maths
This week in maths, we have been working hard on our algebraic rules. We have tackled this task with positivity and cannot wait to learn more. We have also been learning how to find the value of an expression or equation. As well as the other task, we were extremely confident and tackled it with pride.

Art gallery
We had our art gallery last week and are proud to say it was a success! We had lots of parents come in and say how brilliant our work was. If you came, thank you for taking the time to come see our amazing work. We had such a fun time doing activities with parents and we think they enjoyed it more than us!

English
This week in English, we have been trying to use our personal targets to write a discussion text. This was our hot write and we think we smashed it since our planning was full of brilliant skills. We have also been much more active with tests - some of us have even achieved greater depth already! We achieved a lot and we will be practising to make sure that we pass our SATS.

Maths
This week in maths, we have been doing our arithmetic and reasoning papers. All of us are proud of our scores, since we beat our other scores before. We are ready to start the even harder challenges/pressure and we will practise lots at home to, so that we are ready for what is coming up ahead.

Topic
This week in topic, we have been focusing on our artwork for the art gallery. We cannot wait to see the adults faces be amazed by our wonderful work.

English
This week in English, we have been trying to identify and use formal style in our writing. We had a task to try and identify/explain if someone is using formal language or not. We have also been learning about how to use hyphens to avoid ambiguity. We smashed this task, and have now developed and can use hyphens correctly. We cannot wait to learn more about the skills we can use to make amazing pieces of writing.

Maths
This week in maths, we have been learning more about algebra. When we heard that we were learning about algebra, we all went into shock, since we thought it was hard. But now we are finding it very easy and we are becoming more and more successful every time we have another lesson on it. We have been concentrating mainly on function machines, which we have found quit interesting. We cannot wait to learn more and move on.

The art of being brilliant
On Wednesday, we had a full two hour lesson on being happy and brilliant. We talked about mood hovers and two percenters. I bet you are wondering what these things are … well here it is. A mood hoover is someone that always says it’s boring and doesn't enjoy life. Where as a 2% is someone that is the complete opposite to that. They choose to enjoy life and have lots of fun.

English
In English this week, we have been trying to identify and use formal vocabulary in our writing. We have been using questions to help us figure out whether the sentences are formal or informal and sometimes explaining how we know. We have also done a interesting slow write as a table. In this slow write, we had to have great creativity since it was about sharks in a wood and somehow we found ourselves lost there. We cannot wait for Miss Footitt to mark it and pick the winning table.

Maths
This week in maths, we have bee using a bar model to find out percentages. At first we did not get it but after we got a second lesson on it we understood more. We have also been ordering and comparing fractions, decimals and percentages. We found this quite difficult because of all the steps, but we eventually figured it out. We also finished a hot task about percentages and were very proud of our scores.

NSPCC
This week, we had a special visit from the NSPCC. They came to talk to us about how you need to speak out if child abuse is happening with you. We got a fun activity to do in a booklet that included what makes us happy and a chatter box. Thank you for coming NSPCC!

We have also had red nose day!

English
In English this week, we have been learning about facts and opinions. We have tried to find out the differences between facts and opinions, and we have done that through a discussion text about if children should eat chocolate for breakfast. What do you think? Also, we have been doing topic sentences and matching informal words to their formal synonyms.

Maths
In maths this week, we have been learning how to solve problems involving calculating percentages. We have also been using our knowledge of percentages to work out missing values. We had to go through a lot of steps to understand the method and achieve a green spot. We cannot wait to learn more methods and learn more about percentages.

World book day
Yesterday we came to school in our pyjamas. You are probably curious about why and there's a clue in the title. It was world book day and we had a bed time story session at the end of the day, when some of our parents got the opportunity to come and read with us too.

English

In English this week, we have been using our writing skills to progress to a discussion text. The most popular option to write a discussion text about, was cats or dogs. What would you pick? We have been highlighting in texts both formal languages and adverbials, since those are some of the tools you need to use when writing a discussion text.

This week in topic, we have been drawing our final pictures using all the skills we have learnt throughout the lessons. Even though we have not finished them yet, we are very proud of them. We have also been doing about if life were a object/thing we use in our everyday life, what would it be. We cannot wait to finish our drawings and get them to perfection and a high standard.
