Weekly Update 16th January 2020

Mrs Wolfe - 16 Jan 2020

Today we launched the 500 Words competition in Cedar class.  Pupils are busy planning their stories and itching to get started.  After listening to the winners' stories from last year, Cedar then enjoyed the BBC Radio 2 Live Lesson.  It certainly got Cedar motivated and I can not wait to read our entries.  Watch this space for more information including permission forms for me to submit Cedar’s stories. We have enjoyed many successes in this competition and we are hoping to enjoy some more this year. Good luck Cedar! 

We’ve been busy grappling with mental strategies for multiplying and dividing this week.  Year 5 have been working on multiplying by 10,100 and 1000 and year 6 pupils have been revising all four operations, putting their knowledge to good use. 

Our English reading work has continued through our exploration of the text, ‘Journey to the River Sea’ by Eva Ibbotson.  Pupils have been using their retrieval, comprehension and inference skills to explore characters and themes within the text.  Today they used performance reading to get a more deeper understanding of character and action. 

Our computing focus this term is communication and collaboration.  The children are eagerly putting ideas together for their own website, which will inform their audience of the destruction of the Amazon Rainforest. They are so excited and I can’t wait to see their work come together.

Thank you to all who have handed in their slips for the Royal Hall concert.  The deadline for this is tomorrow. Mrs Harris will send out further information over the next months.  

Have a a super weekend,
Mrs Wolfe
