Autumn Term 2017

Welcome back!
We have a busy term ahead of us, with our residential trip, MacMillan Coffee afternoon, Harvest Festival and Christmas celebrations, in addition to all of the fabulous learning we will be doing.

In English we will begin by reading 'Matilda' by Roald Dahl before getting to grips with 'Letters From a Lighthouse' by Emma Carroll. 

In maths we will begin with a focus on place value and calculations, before moving on to measures and algebra.

Our new IPC topic is Making New Materials.

Bike Challenge!

As we had seen the Tour of Britain we decided to set the children a team challenge. In groups they had to design and make their own bike to fit a toy doll. The bike had to have two wheels but could have any kind of frame. The children had access to a range of materials including wooden and cardboard wheels and tools such as saws and drills.

Every group successfully made a bike by the deadline.

In maths we have been reading, writing, partitioning and comparing 6 and 7-digit numbers.

Tour of Britain

What a start to the new year! We spent Tuesday 5th September enjoying a range of activities linked to the third stage of the Tour of Britain cycle race which passed our school.
To start the day off, we had our own cycle race around school. Congratulations to Mia and Freddie who won their heats. Next, we made banners to support the different cycling teams before standing outside school and cheering the cyclists on. After lunch we got to wwatch them again as they crossed the bridge, before some of us cycled to Cental Park with Mrs Tate to see the finish. It was an amazing experience.

Roald Dahl Week
This week we have been reading Matilda by Roald Dahl. First, we looked at the relationship between Matilda and her parents, thinking about how they treated her. We wrote an additional chapter where Mr Wormwood was unkind to Matilda and she plotted her revenge.

Next, we looked at the character of Miss Trunchbull and how she treated the pupils at her school. This led to a great deal of discussion, including the rights of a child.
