Welcome back Foxes! I cannot believe that this is our final half term! This year has absolutely flown by! It was lovely to hear about all your half term adventures. 


In Maths this week Year 3 have carried on with their unit on Time. They have learnt about using am and pm and have also thought about years, months and days. In this digital age, reading an analogue clock is becoming much less common. If you ever come across analogue clocks please ask the children the time! The more they can practise this, the better!



Year 4 have been learning about money. They have written money using decimals, converted between pounds and pence and compared amounts of money.  This has involved lots of the skills we have developed over the year which have included understanding and using decimals and the formal method of addition and subtraction. Next week they too will be learning about Time.


In English we have planned and written our Fantasy Stories! The children looked at all of the features that they have previously learnt, including: fronted adverbials; a reminder about speech and including description of your character and their emotions.  The children have had some fantastic ideas and have done a great job at writing their stories! I can’t wait to read them all!


We began our Design and Technology project this week: To design and make a healthy sandwich! We began to think about the healthy sandwiches we are going to create. The children thought about sandwiches that they have eaten and whether these would form part of a healthy-balanced diet. They then went on to collect data from the rest of the class about what the most popular sandwich was. This information will help them decide what sandwich they eventually make. Next week the children will bring home their designs and we will be asking you to provide the ingredients so they can make their very own sandwiches! (Thank you in advance for your support with this!)


We began our new Art topic this week, focusing on using the natural world as the inspiration for our Art this week as well.  The children chose a picture from the Rainforest and created a pastel piece from all of it or part of it. They created some wonderful pieces of artwork.


Have a lovely weekend!
