Violet Class News

It has been a very exciting week in the Violet 1 and 2 classes! The children have written some fantastically persuasive letters about school uniform, break time, the school playground and the use of phones. They used strong, emotive language to make their points and showed confident presentation skills when reading out their letters - well done!

Our maths focus this week has been on reflection, symmetry and translation of shapes. This required implementing our knowledge of co-ordinates and we were very impressed with how the children handled this tricky learning!

We wrote letters from Judas' point of view in RE, conducted an exciting science experiment about water resistance and made some beautiful 'Come to Marvellous Maida Vale' posters in Topic/Art.

Have a great a weekend!

Wow! Weeeee! Violet 3 were on fire this week! In Maths we revised challenging word problems involving fractions, percentages and decimals. Our creative juices flowed in English as we wrote descriptive pieces to create a magical atmosphere based on our class book Skellig. We built circuits in Science to test if a material was a good conductor or insulator. Can you explain the difference between the two? In RE we analysed pictures of the raising of Lazarus to help us understand the story and symbolism. Enjoy a well deserved relaxing weekend Violet 3!
