Class News - S2 - Week 2


I can’t believe that it is the end of another week. It feels like it was only yesterday!


This week, we completed our sustained writing. We have heard each other's stories and given peer feedback. What we like about it and some constructive criticism. I will mark them and take some photos for you all to read. We will be moving on to my favourite topic, play script writing, next week.


In math, we have also come to the end of our shape unit. We will revisit throughout the year and do some quizzes to see if the children can remember shape names, but when? We will be looking at our new topic, decimals and addition, with our weekly mental arithmetic on Monday.


We will be completing our science unit on Monday, so please bring some old trousers and old trainers or wellington boots. We will also be outside for a while, so please make sure the children wrap up warm, especially when the temperature is meant to drop considerably next week.


In RE, we finished our final lesson on ‘community’ and will be starting to look at "giving and receiving" as our next topic.

We designed our final products in DT this week. We came up with group names, logos, biscuits, and packaging while tasting biscuits that we had already made.


We also started looking at our dreams and goals and what we should do when we experience disappointment. We will continue this next week.


World Book Day this year was SUPER fun! Looking at all the words the children came dressed up as was brilliant! We had some different book characters, too, which was great. Thursday afternoon, we had a couple of games, and then I gave the children a challenge to design their own wordless book to read that afternoon to Year 1. When I explained to them that they would have absolutely no words, we had a lot of shocked faces! What an achievement! The stories were really creative and funny! Well done, Year 4! The Year 1 children loved them!


We have had a big focus on handwriting this week, so it was really hard to choose a writer of the week, but Aisosa has tried SUPER hard this week with his cursive letters, and it has really paid off! So well done, Aisosa, who is our writer of the week!


Well done to our stars this week:




Have a lovely weekend!
