What an exciting, varied week! We all enjoyed a fantastic Outdoor Learning Day yesterday with a huge range of different tasks - please take time to look at some of the gorgeous photos.
We have also been recapping our mental maths strategies with repetition and creative retrieval. We used hoops to demonstrate how to multiply and divide by 10 , 100 and 1,000 and we have started looking at different methods to help with arithmetic.
During English and geography sessions we have been studying the beautiful picture book: 'Can we save the tiger?' Such great discussion and mature debate - well done everyone! We also created some brilliant non-fiction, endangered species fact files.
Have a lovely weekend,

Weekly Update: 14th - 18th September
What a glorious week of lovely weather we have experienced! As a result, we have been using the outdoor space for GPS challenges, drama activities, lots of PE and even some fun with ice balloons!
In English this week we have been finishing our learning about ICE TRAP: Shackleton's incredible adventure and extending our learning with April Pevensea - a scientist from the future. The class have produced some great creative writing in the form of a diary entry or a short narrative.
During Maths lessons, we have been consolidating our place value knowledge with various challenges and games, revising our mental maths strategies and exploring our visual/connectionist understanding.
Please make sure that you are reading out loud to an adult regularly, using First News iHub, reviewing your weekly spellings and completing your home learning - if you have any questions or need any additional help/support please contact me via the class email.
Have a lovely weekend!

Outdoor Learning Day: Thursday 24th September (own clothes for messy, outdoor learning)
Weekly Update: 7th-11th September
Wow - what a great first full week back, we have covered so much already!
As a class text we have been studying 'Ice Trap,' the incredible, true story of Ernest Shackleton and his Adventures in Antarctica; from this book, we have enhanced our comprehension skills and created some fantastic, descriptive poetry.
In Maths, we have been recapping Place Value with an assortment of different games, and revising the basics of addition and subtraction. We have also started our Mental Maths sessions and we are already on our third round of X-Table tests!
We have also been enjoying the outdoors with multiple PE sessions, outdoor learning and our, ever competitive, 'Team Challenges!' Internet safety is another vital area that we have covered and we encourage you to do the same at home, regular chats and reminders are key to ensuring understanding and safety! I have already discovered we have a very creative class this year and I am so impressed with their amazing 'Quirky Animal Creations'... watch this space for photos.
Have a lovely weekend and remember to send your Home Learning through to me, via the class email, by Wednesday 16th September.
