Learning this week:
In English this week, we have started the new challenge of writing a persuasive information leaflet. Over the coming week the pupils will write a travel leaflet, trying to persuade the reader to visit a country of their choice.
We have jumped back into the topic of fractions in maths! It’s been great to see how much the pupils have remembered from our first fractions topic and we have applied this to multiplying fractions.
In art, we also enjoyed learning about Pablo Picasso and the influence he had on the cubist movement. We started to experiment with hatching and cross hatching to create different shading patterns on shapes.
We investigated different questions in science this week using a number of sources and our own data gathered from experiments. The pupils were able to discover where the fastest fish in the oceans live and test whether certain objects drop faster than others.
Finally, the pupils did a fantastic job of discussing how to have a safe and positive experience online when gaming! They got creative by designing their own video game containing a set of rules to keep players safe and ensure they have a fun time while playing.
Have a great weekend!

Please put spare trainers in your child’s bag. In the event of rain, wet play and PE are result in wet, damp shoes. Thank you.
Please remember to read the Head teacher’s letter for this week.
Please can your child read 5 times a week, preferably out loud. They have a reading log which will be checked every Friday morning. Please ensure their reading book comes in every day.
TTRS is up and running. We are asking everyone to complete about 30 minutes a week please. This is best split into 3, 10 minute sessions. Once the garage and soundcheck tasks are complete, children can choose what they play on there. Each child should have their tables set on the garage tasks, which enables them to practise comfortably. The other games are all tables.
Teachers will check the online logs every Friday. Please let your class teacher know if there is a problem.
As soon as the spelling homework books have arrived, spelling homework will start. Children should record spelling practice in their purple homework books. This will be checked every Friday. Please see the spelling menu and word list below.
