What a busy week we’ve had!

We have been practising for our Class Assembly on Friday 6th October. We hope you can make it at 9o’clock in the Junior hall.

In English, we have started a new text – The King of the Birds. We are enjoying the story so far and have looked at present tense and adverbs and verbs. The children have shown a fantastic understanding by answering a range of comprehension questions. They blew me away with their answers. Next week we will be beginning to gather information for our non-chronological report on Hummingbirds.

In Maths, we have been focusing on doubling. The children found this tricky at first but have shown great resilience as we have tried to become quicker at recalling them. Next week we will move onto halving and how our doubles can help us to understand these.


In Science, we have started to make our own information book that describes the food sources of different animals. We are looking forward to completing them on Monday before moving onto grouping animals using the terms – carnivores, herbivores and omnivores.

In R.E we have begun to focus on our religion for this half term – Judaism. We created our own Star of David and wrote about its meaning.

In Art, we created our own space images in the style of Peter Thorpe. We will be showing these off in our Assembly.


Well done to Felicity who was our Learning Hero for this week. She is always displaying the BLP Learning Powers and has shown great perseverance when doubling 2 and 3 digit numbers.

Hollie and Daniel made it onto the Extraordinary Zone for great collaboration and reasoning during Maths.

Our Championship Point winners were Hollie and Felicity!

Our winning house was Honesty.

Important Information:

Reading books are due in at least once a week.

Home Learning is given out on Fridays and is expected to return the following Tuesday. 

The children have been asked to access Active Learn. There’s also lots of other great games to consolidate the estimating and place value work we have completed this week, plus loads of extra reading books

Sergei is the class mascot who travels from Friday and returns to school on Monday.

Our P.E days are on a Tuesday and Thursday.

Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Szoltysek and Mrs Slater
