Weekly News!

Term 3 Week 2


This week in Maths we have been adding 3 1-digit numbers we were super good at this! Towards the end of the week we started looking at column addition! We had to make sure we added the ones column first and then the tens.


We have been looking at Buddhism! We have learnt the parable ‘The Monkey King’ and Siddhartha. On Friday we made Vesak lanterns. Vesak is Buddhists to celebrate the birth of Buddha. 


We have been so busy in English this week! We have found out what a modal verb is and used these in our writing. We have also started to use rhetorical questions! All this work has led up to our Big Write! We have wrote a persuasive piece of writing on ‘Hunting’ We had to decide if we were ‘For’ or ‘Against’ and came up with some fantastic ideas!

We are lucky enough to be joined by two student teachers Miss Plowman (Team Ocean) and Mrs Gilbert. (Team Sky) Miss Plowman is with us until the 4th February and Mrs Gilbert is with us for 9 weeks!
