In History, we developed our measuring skills as we weighed out the rationed food allowances for a week. We were surprised how little food people were allowed to buy during the war.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them.

Computing: We have been using 2code on Purple Mash to write algorithms and debug and correct mistakes.

Look out for a 'Book Talk' flyer appearing in your child's book bag over the next few weeks. We are developing our speaking, listening and communication skills by talking about our favourite books that we have really enjoyed reading. We also want to share the love for a good book!

Our first 'Book Talk' presentations took place today! Have you read these books?

In Science, we have been exploring how sounds are made and how they travel. Hitting a drum with rice on the skin was very fun and we could see the vibrations. In the outdoor classroom, we created a sound map. We listened to the sounds in our environment and drew arrows to show the direction and the distance that they had travelled.

In music, we have been learning how to read music notation. We are looking forward to creating our own compositions after half term.

National Grid Workshop - we had amazing fun learning about the new pylons, sources of energy and making our electic circuit buzzer games! We can now tell you all about insulators and conductors.

We have been learning about the story of Noah in R.E and we made rafts in the outdoor classroom to keep animals safe from the flood.

Where in the World? If you go on a day trip, or away on holiday, why not pick up a post card and post it to school? We are adding all our class post cards to our world map.
