Maths: This week we have continued to work on our subtraction skills – we had lost some of our confidence when working with zeros. With a bit of persistence and effort, we have really gained that confidence again. So much so that we have been able to show off our skills in our hot task – we were all really pleased with our progress.

English: As this week has been Diwali, we have been using our English as a vehicle to learn about Diwali. We have shown great recall of the story of Rama and Sita that we then reduced to three key ideas which we have then turned into a comic strip to retell the story from. We have worked hard to create interesting comic styles, thinking about how the three elements of a comic come together to entertain the reader.

The most interesting part of our work this week making our poppy for Remembrance out of CDs. This will be put on the War Memorial in town as a gift from Carr Hill on Remembrance Sunday.

Our Star of the Week this week is Jake for the real effort that he has shown this week, following Parent’s Evening, to take on board the points that were made about presentation. Well done Jake for the improvements you have already made and keep up the hard work – it will pay off as you keep improving.
