If you were trapped in a Snowglobe, what kind of world would it be? What magical power would you use to get out? How terrifying and cunning would the villain be? These are just some of the questions the author Amy Wilson asked us in her assembly on Tuesday promoting the book Snowglobe. We were all hooked and eager to buy the new release. In English this week, we focused on our Precising skills, which involved us summarising a long passage from our class book The Unforgotten Coat. It has been all about Fractions in Maths, Adding and Subtracting fractions with different denominators, Multiplying and Dividing Fractions with whole numbers. We thoroughly enjoyed showing our parents our work on the open afternoons, thank you to all those who came, it was really nice to see you. Next week, we are looking forward to going to the library on Monday.
The mathematical focus for Violet 1 and 2 this week has been comparing, ordering and converting fractions. The children used their skill and expertise to articulate how they knew that certain fractions denoted larger amounts than others.
Both classes produced commendable written work on our class novel 'Thief', using a variety of fronted adverbials to make their prose more informative and descriptive.
We continued our learning about European countries and produced a beautiful RE display on a Catholic marriage liturgy to round off our 'Life Choices' topic. The children are very excited to learn more about Judaism next week!
On Friday, the children conducted themselves in a respectful manner during our school remembrance service, before a wonderful afternoon at Forest School.
