Weekly Update 15th March 2018

Mrs Wolfe - 15 Mar 2018

What a fantastic and fun-packed week we have had!  On Monday we began the week with our World Book Day celebrations.  In the morning we found out all about Harris Burdick and his mysteries…some fantastic openers have been written to support his illustrations.  Our maths focus was a variety of book-themed challenges…from finding the average number of words per page to collecting data about our favourite authors and books.  The afternoon was run by our reading ambassadors (we are so impressed with their organisation and creativity) and included a variety of activities ranging from book hunts to blackout poetry!  A great day was had by all!

We’ve been working hard on our apocalyptic stories – they are coming on brilliantly.  Children have been applying all their grammar skills into their drafts, ensuring that they are using these consistently.  We have begun getting to grips with fractions – converting improper fractions to mixed numbers.  On Wednesday we began our textiles project with Mrs Brassington, Mrs Peacock and Mrs Witherick, who have kindly volunteered to help us make a wall hanging for our West Tanfield topic.  The children did some fantastic wet-felting and are developing their designs well.  We will be sharing our topic learning with St Nicholas next half term and so are pulling together our presentations, which are looking very exciting!

Thank you to all pupils who have prepared for and spoken at their learning review meetings this week.  I am so impressed with you all.  It’s been a great opportunity to celebrate and share all of the wonderful learning with your families.  Well done!

If you haven’t managed to book an appointment please pop in so that we can organise a time to meet.
Have a great weekend – keep collecting your reading minutes…we collected 4710 minutes in Cedar last week – let’s make sure we improve our score this week!
