Drawing elephants, in a room, With Mr Fidler 
We hope you had an enjoyable half- term holiday.

In Literacy this week we have revisited the story of Rama and Sita and then the children have written the story in their own words.They really put a lot of thought and effort into this activity! 

In mathematics this week Mr.Kerray's set has been working on recognising the properties of 2 D shapes. Mr.Askew's set has been looking at rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and 100 and subtracting by counting on.

In I.C.T the children have been using Espresso to research the Gunpowder Plot in readiness for creating a powerpoint presentation on this.

In R.E. we consolidated our knowledge of the Trimurti, enabling the children to create their own symbolic gods.. 

Mr.Reeves worked with the children on their Gamelan skills.

Mr.Fidler has started a unit on textiles which will involve embroidery skills.

There is mathematics and English homework this week. Could this please be handed in on Wednesday so the following weeks homework can be added. 

Change of date: Our class assembly on Diwali has now been moved back a week to Friday, 28th November. 

Reminders:
  • Remember to continue reading daily with your child, 10 minutes daily practice will really help them to improve.
  • You could also discuss together the book you have read, again this is an important reading skill that the children need to develop.
  • Please keep signing your child's journal to indicate that you have read with your child. Many thanks.
  • Please bring PE kits into school on Monday, we will send them home on Friday.
Many thanks for your support Mr Askew and Mr Kerray
