We have had a busy week settling back into our routines and starting new topics, well done for coming back with such positive attitudes 4RP!
In maths we have completed our current unit on addition and subtraction, where we have been learning to add and subtract numbers with up to four digits. We have also been learning to check our answers by completing the inverse calculation, and we have been solving missing number problems.
We are now moving onto the unit of measurement, which includes converting between metres and kilometres, and working out the perimeter of shapes.
English this week has concentrated on the story of Rama and Sita, we have created our own comic strips based on the story. We have continued our guided reading sessions each morning, and have begun looking at poetry, ready for our new topic next week.
We have spent our topic time learning about Diwali, which is a Hindu festival that began on Wednesday. We have designed our own Diva lamps, which we are going to make out of clay, and designed mendhi hand prints. We also spent some time reading about Diwali, and understanding important aspects of the Hindu faith.
Our superstar this week is Ethan, for working hard to improve the presentation of his work, well done Ethan!
Next week is anti-bullying week, we are starting this off with an ‘odd socks day’ on Monday, so please come to school on Monday wearing odd socks.
We also have Children in Need on Friday 16th, which is a non-school uniform day (please try and wear spots), for a donation of £1 (biscuit included in the price).
