As it is the month of the rosary, we have created a collaborative rosary bead. We each wrote a prayer to Our Lady for what we are thankful for. It is on display (at the top of the stairs) for everyone to enjoy.
We had great discussions about a range of different Greek myths, and the children used this knowledge and incorporated it when creating their own. The children were very enthusiastic and thoroughly enjoyed sharing their myths with each other.
This week in Maths, we have focused on the column method for addition and subtraction, and solved problems using these methods. It was great to see the kids persevering with challenging tasks.
It was wonderful to see those of you who came to parents evening, have a lovely weekend!

What an amazing week! On Tuesday, most of the class went a trip to the Brunel Museum and learnt about many of Mr Brunel's inventions during the Industrial Revolution. What was your favourite fact? In English this week, we started looking at the features of a persuasive letter: passive voice, emotive language, hyperbole (a fancy word for exaggeration), rhetorical questions using modal verbs, facts and opinions. This is great preparation for next week where we will be writing our own persuasive letter.
In Maths, we completed some assessments and received some very pleasing results. Next week, we are looking forward to the Library visit on Monday.
