In maths this week we have been comparing amounts of money, calculating totals and later in the week will be exploring how to calculate change.

In writing, we have started our unit on ‘The Magic Paintbrush’ where we will be learning how to write a wishing tale. The children focused on writing character descriptions this week, along with a short diary entry. We also have been comparing texts to find similarities and differences between them.

In our topic, we created a nocturnal animal fact file focusing on the barn owl. We also will be completing night scene pictures using water colours in art.

Class 2 are looking forward to sharing their lovely home learning projects with you on Friday! I am very impressed at the effort that has gone into each and every one.

Times table test will be on the 2, 5 and 10 tables.

This week in class, we have finished our unit on mass and have moved on to reading and estimating temperature. The maths homework will be word problems (using the four operations) based on mass. We will also be having a times tables test on the x3 and division 3 times tables.

We have also finished our cumulative tale and completed our hot task. The pupils worked really hard and enjoyed reading their work out in front of the class. We will begin the imitation stage of our non-chronological report on Polar Bears tomorrow.

In our topic this week, we will be comparing the missions of Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong. In Science, we learned about healthy eating and in our PHSE we talked about how important it is to take turns.

If you have any spare shoe boxes or cardboard boxes at home, it would be great if you could send them into school. We will begin making our moon buggy next week and every child needs a box.

Stay warm!
