Week beginning 31.10.16

I hope you all had a lovely half term. In Literacy the children wrote recounts of their favourite day in the holiday and it sounds like you have all been busy! As always, it has been a busy first week back too!

We had Mass on Tuesday morning with our new priest Canon Tony.

In Maths the children have been learning about fractions-this is a challenging topic for many and they have really impressed me with their understanding. For homework this week they have been asked to complete an activity on equivalent fractions.

We have started reading a non-fiction text in Literacy called 'The Museum of Fun'. The children have been able to highlight the important features of non-fiction texts such as headings, subheadings, pictures and a glossary.

Our new topic in Science this half term is Forces. This week the children used Newton metres to measure different objects around the classroom.

We have been practicing our gymnastics in PE this term. This week the children had a go at exploring the different apparatus, including the wall bars. I was amazed by their confidence and the variety of travel and balances on show.
