What another fantastic week we have had! In English this week we have continued learning about biographies; the children have researched and created their very own two-page spread about an inspirational person. I have been blown away by their research skills and ability to be able to present their findings in a creative way.


In Maths we have started learning about addition and subtraction. We have begun by consolidating our understanding of adding and subtracting 1s, 10s, 100s and 1000s to 3-digit and 4digit numbers. Can you have a go at the reasoning problem below?



In History, we have been learning about Anglo-Saxon settlements. We looked at what their homes used to look like, how their villages were organised and what jobs they did to work together as a community. Can you remember what these features of the home were for?



In Science we looked at complete and incomplete circuits. We learned that for a circuit to be complete, the wires must be attached to both the negative and the positive terminals of the cell/battery. We investigated circuits that were not complete and made suggestions as to how we could get the bulbs to light up.


RE has involved us thinking about why Christians believe that Jesus is lots of different things to them.  We looked at the phrases that are used to describe him. For example, ‘I am the Door’.  We thought about what these phrases mean to Christians and what they could tell us about Jesus.


Harvest Festival – we started learning our class song this week! I will be sending home lyrics soon so the children can practise at home.


I will be sending home parents evening appointment times on Monday – thank you all for getting your appointment requests to me so quickly!


Have a great weekend!
