Good morning everyone,
It has been lovely being back in school this week with the sun shining down, let’s hope the weather stays like this.
We have been very busy in Maths this week. We began the week by finishing off our revision of fractions, decimals and percentages then moved onto some one and two step word problems. The children found these challenging at first but all worked extremely hard and both Mrs Oliver and I are delighted with the hard work we have seen.
In English, we have been writing creatively this week. Mrs Oliver’s group watched a short video clip and re-wrote the episode from the point of view of Alma, they had to write in first person and in the present tense. They have all created some wonderful pieces of writing and made for some interesting reading. Mr Prince’s group used a picture to begin thinking of ideas for a story, the picture showed two children in a dark forest. We also had some wonderfully creative ideas about goblins and dirt bikes and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this week’s writing.
This week’s quiz was hosted by Ashton and Aleks, they asked some very difficult questions but everyone tried their best and enjoyed taking part.
We hope you have a wonderful weekend – let’s all hope England play well on Sunday too!
Mr Prince and Mrs Oliver
