Another busy yet incredible week in Foxes class! Not only have we done lots of fantastic learning but we have also celebrated numerous special events. On Wednesday, children took part in a 2 minute silence for Remembrance Day and the respect shown by each and every child made the entire Year 4/5 team very proud. Today, children came to school dressed in pyjamas, spots or yellow clothing and I was amazed by their brilliant efforts to raise money for Children in Need. We have also worked extra hard to spread positivity and happiness today to celebrate World Kindness Day! Each child is now a 'secret angel' for two other members of our class and is on a secret mission to spread happiness over the next few weeks.
We have continued our unit of writing based on non-chronological reports this week, with a focus on researching and planning! Children chose a space-themed topic they would like to write about and then independently researched this using the internet and books. Using the information that they had gathered, children planned their very own non-chronological reports which they began to write today!
Many children in Foxes have continued to research their chosen topic outside of school which is super impressive - Keep up the hard work!
This week, Year 4 have continued to learn about length and perimeter whilst Year 5 have been looking at factors, multiples and prime numbers. Both year groups are working extremely hard and pushing themselves to answer problem-solving questions - Well done!
We have also had another fantastic music session - combining singing and movements - and are looking forward to begin to learn to play the flute next week.
Next week is Anti- Bullying week and the children are encouraged to come to school wearing odd socks on Monday - with their PE kits!
I hope you have a relaxing weekend! Take care.
