Maths: This week we have been learning about graphs (have a look at our photo of a “living” bar graph and the comparative bar graph using cubes. After growing our understanding of bar graphs, we were able to draw accurate graphs and understood the key parts of a graph – labels, equal spacing, title and accurate working using a pencil and ruler. Once we had mastered bar graphs, including interrogating them, we moved on to have a look at line graphs which were a bit more tricky. We persevered and in the end produced some super line graphs that were drawn accurately and labelled neatly. We were also able to use our graphs to explain what was happening and interpret the in-between points.

English: Our English work focussed on developing our understanding of plastic as part of our preparation work for writing persuasive letters about our use of plastic. We have started to think about how we use plastic, what problems single use plastic causes and what the alternatives to plastic are. We will finalise this information next week before starting to plan and write our persuasive letters.

The most interesting part of our work this week was having a conversation in Spanish asking people their personal information – what is your name? How old are you? Where do you live? As always, we really impressed Mrs Hilton-Loom with our enthusiasm and conversational skills.

Our Star of the Week this week is Maddie who has, as always, just been getting on with her work and facing up to all the challenges that have been presented to her. Thank you for being an “always, always” child – continue being the best version of yourself because you are just what school needs – hard working, enthusiastic and willing to have a go.
