Book week is nearly upon us and Mrs Smith has asked me to post and remind you about all the wonderful things happening! We’ll be creating our bookmarks for the competition, choosing what outfit to wear as well dress up as our favourite characters (don’t forget your donation!). We also need your food hamper donations, remember it can’t be stuff that’ll go a bit soft and squishy after a few days – like veggies or fruit, and finally remember if you want to be part of the raffle for those different hampers then you have to tear off the strip of raffle tickets, put your name on the back (or your parents’ names) and pay £1 at the office.

This half term…

I’ve been really excited planning this half term’s work. We’ve got an awful lot to fit in 5 weeks! Not only do we have our normal lessons we have book week to think of as well as the sing up day 🙂

This half term we’ll be studying traditional stories, looking at time and timestables, designing puppets, learning about Martin Luther King, Rosa Parks, slavery and civil liberty, as well as our usual favourites such as music, spanish, ict and PE.

I can’t wait to get stuck into this half term, hope you feel the same!

Been a busy half term..

As we’re approaching the half term holiday i’ve been looking back on what we’ve been up to and my goodness we’ve been busy!

Here are a few photos i’ve been meaning to post up for a week or two.

We had been measuring mass, first comparing weights saying which is heavier and lighter, which items were equal to and then we progressed onto weighing using kilograms and grams.

Dino crazy!

In our literacy this week and in the coming weeks we’ve started to look at explaination texts, in particular the topic of dinosaurs. We’ve come up with lots of questions that we want answered and here are a few websites to start us off on the road to finding them out!

We’ve been having some fun this week trying to pronounce some of the Aztec god names as well as other things! Luckily I came across this website and it’s a massive help!
