Weekly Update 18th October 2018

Mrs Wolfe - 18 Oct 2018

This week in Cedar we have been settling into our new classroom – it really is so fantastic.  Thank you again for all your help and support with our new routines.

Cedar pupils spoke brilliantly at our harvest festival on Monday morning.  It was great to hear all the facts that pupils had discovered about water and how important it is shared with our community.  Please take a closer look at our information posters in the corridor by Mrs Peacock’s office. 

We’ve been focusing on efficient mental calculation strategies this week in maths and have been tackling missing number equations, looking for the best way to solve them using only mental methods. 

Cross-curricular writing has been another area of focus and we have produced an information text about Roman shields and also a persuasive letter in R.E.

Our Roman shield work is in preparation for our DT project next week, as we will be making our own shields using designs created from pupil research.

In R.E we had some passionate debates about fairness and pupils have been writing letters to supermarkets and members of parliament to try and make a change about some of the injustices in the world.

We've been linking maths to our science learning again this week and have been putting our data skills to the test creating graphs that this time show two data sets in order to explore the relationship between the gestation period and life expectancy of animals.

It has been lovely meeting with pupils and parents for our learning review meetings – it has been fantastic to hear how well everyone is settling in and how much they are enjoying their learning.

A huge well done to our reading ambassadors for organising a brilliant bake sale this afternoon to raise funds for the library - they are following today's sale with yet another tomorrow after school.  Thank you all so much for helping us raise funds for our amazing new library.

Please look out for a letter in your child's bag today regarding our DT trip to Pizza Express after the half term holiday - we are so excited about this!

Finally, a quick reminder that pupils are able to enter the classroom at 8:45 every morning to complete their ‘Early Bird’ work.  We do expect pupils to arrive by 8:55am in order to register before the register closes.   Every minute counts!  Thank you for your support with ensuring your child has a prompt and timely start to each day.
