6th November 2017

Welcome back after the half-term break.  Class 3ES have been hard at work continuing learning about World War II.

We have designed and created some amazing pictures using paints, black paper and chalk which show a skyline during ‘The Blitz’.  The children blended red and yellow to paint a background, then drew the outline of buildings on black paper to create an outline when glued onto their background.  The children accurately used rulers to ensure their buildings had straight lines and worked very hard to cut their designs out carefully.  Well done to the whole class for all their hard work!

In English we have been studying poems about World War II and practising blocking out words to create our own poems.  We are going to be presenting these over the next week so watch this space to see our finished work.

Our ‘Champion of the Week’ is Charlotte for her continued enthusiasm and positive attitude in lessons. She always approaches tasks with the aim of completing them to the best of her ability. Well done Charlotte for all of your hard work! Keep it up!

In Maths children have been drawing on their existing knowledge of adding one, two and three-digit numbers and have practised using the extended column method and short formal written methods.  Why not ask your child to show you what they have been doing in maths?
