Maths: We started the week with our hot task based on the work we have been doing on place value. WOW! We have learned so much and made some tremendous improvements – we were all really pleased with ourselves. Having completed our first unit, we have now moved onto the unit on addition and subtraction and subtraction is already proving to be the more tricky especially when you have to exchange between the different values.

English: As our ‘Marvellous Me’s show, we have really impressed Mrs Hilton with our stories based around the fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk to the point that she laughed out loud when she was reading Kyla’s. We have continued to work hard on these, ensuring that we’ve not skipped a few paragraphs and are looking forward to writing the resolution and the ending so that we can present our favourite sections using our beautiful handwriting and also record a few of them to put on the blog. Watch this space!

The best bits about this week are that we have completed our poppies to take to Thoresby for the display that they are hoping to put up to commemorate the ending of the First World War and we performed brilliantly during our harvest assembly – we had all worked really hard to remember the harvest hymns and certainly sang with gusto.

Our Star of the Week this week is Amelia for the hard-working attitude that she displays on a daily basis alongside the extra work that she keeps doing at home to improve her skills. Well done Amelia and keep it up!
