W/b Monday 10th February - Team Royal and Team Indigo
We started the week with learning about the British Values. We learnt about the 5 values of Democracy, Rule of Law, Respect, Tolerance and Individual Liberty.
We learnt about the values through activities in the Forest School, Maths problems and artwork.
Take a look at the canvas we made to celebrate our British Values learning!
In English we have started a brand new book... 'Max' by Bob Graham.
Blurb - Max has a cape and a mask, but he doesn't fly. His parents can't understand it. It seems that Max is just an ordinary boy, until finally, to save a falling baby bird, Max discovers he can fly! He'll be a small hero, doing small deeds. "The world needs more of those," says his mum.

This week in English we have been working on the writing skills:
- Writing in first person
- Writing in the past tense
- Writing different sentence types - questions, statements, exclamations and commands
We used all of these skills when writing a diary entry as Max. Take a look at the example we wrote as a class!
Wow! What a day I've had. It's been incredible! Where do I start?
I'll start at the very beginning....When I woke up, I could hear quiet chirping just outside my bedroom window. It gradually got louder and louder so I had to investigate. As I peered out of my open window, my heart skipped a beat. A tiny, fluffy bird was on the edge of its nest. It wasn't ready to fly. Quickly, I ran down the stairs and sprinted out of the front door. As I looked up the poor, little baby FELL from the nest. What do you think I did? I still can't believe it. I actually flew and it was amazing. I caught the cute bird in my hands and safely delivered back to its waiting parents.
When I looked down, my whole family were watching me. They were so proud. Flying is incredible so I'm going to fly everywhere from now on. Being a superhero is great!
Bye Diary, I'll update you with my new adventures soon.
Each week we will be practising new spellings.. if you would like to have a go at home, the spellings are:
after, again, any, bath, beautiful, because, behind, both, break, busy
In Maths this week we have been learning about measuring lengths, comparing lengths, ordering lengths and started solving problems around measure. They key information we had to use this week to aid us with our learning...
cm = centimetre
m = metre
100cm = 1 metre
50cm = 1/2 metre
We have become very confident with our measuring length knowledge this week :)
Next week we will be continuing solving problems around the topic of measuring lengths.
This week in RE, we have been learning about Judaism. We have learnt about the Jewish special scroll called the Torah and how it is written in ancient Hebrew, how a synagogue is used as a special place of worship, how there are four important stages in Jewish life: birth, becoming an adult, marriage and death and how teachers of the Jewish faith are called rabbis. They lead worship in the synagogue, conduct marriage and funeral ceremonies and give people advice on religious matters.
Love to Learn
