We have had a brilliant week in Violet 1 and 2. Our main Maths focus has been converting different metric units of measure, a tricky concept that the children have taken to well. In English we have looked at using descriptive language to make out writing effective. We continued reading our class novel writing some fantastic character descriptions. This week in RE the children have researched different churches within Christianity and discovered the similarities and differences between these and the Catholic church. We have continued our work on the Tudors, learning all about their buildings and houses, we can't wait to see the children's models next week!
Have a lovely weekend!

An amazing week for Violet 3. It began with a trip to the Library and we were reminded that we are never too old to have a story read to us, we thoroughly enjoyed listening to Gordon and the story he told. We worked tirelessly in Maths this week using formulas to find the Nth Term. In English, we wrote letters from the perspective of Michael, the main character from our class book Skellig, which included literary language and characterisation to hook and manipulate the reader. In Science we conducted an experiment which involved us finding our pulse and measuring our heart beat.
On Thursday, we had an absolutely awesome time at Forest Schools. We explored the area and observed winter changes, we learnt to safely light a fire and we eat toasted marshmallows around the camp fire.
