In English we have finished our stories based on ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’. Below are extracts from Owen, Mia and Jack.                 

Our new poem of the moment is ‘Please Mrs Butler’ by Allan Ahlberg. We have enjoyed reading the poem and also listening to Allan Ahlberg read it online. Use the link below to hear the poem.

This week, we have been learning about the Hindu festival of Diwali. We have written stories about Rama and Sita, answered quiz questions, designed and made clay diva lamps and we ended the week by making Indian sweets called Coconut Ladoo. They were delicious!

Mia, Owen and Jack all visited Mrs Alford with their fantastic writing and they are now in Mrs Alford’s Hall of Fame.

We have a new school council representative! We spent the week putting ourselves forward for the position, nominating our class mates and voting on the ballot papers! After the votes were counted, Emily was declared our ‘Class Councillor’. Well done, Emily!

Our attendance was 97 % and Owen, Jack, Mia, Benjamin and Gosia all earned a ‘Superstar’ certificate.

Mia is our ‘Champion of the Week’ because she has worked extremely hard on her story and she has been making good progress with her reading quizzes. Well done, Mia!
