Our biographies about Marie Curie have been created and the presentation is wonderful! They have been structured into well-written paragraphs and we’re just going to “polish” them next week to make sure we’ve achieved all our targets.

We have finished our unit on Place Value and have completed our “Hot Task.” We have worked so hard and it is fantastic to see the progress made over the past 3 weeks.

We have started to research the history of the “carousel,” which relates to our topic “Scream Machines.” The attached photos show how we worked in small groups to scrutinise a variety of images showing carousels over the ages, picking up clues, in order to try to place them on a timeline.

Wow! We got off to a flying start this week and every child attended on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and it looked as if we were going to achieve 100%. However, on Friday, two children were stricken with sickness and cold “bugs” and we didn’t quite manage our goal. Even though we didn’t achieve 100%, we have made massive improvements by ascending from the bottom of the pile to almost the top. We still received a certificate and we intend to cash it in for cakes!
