Well done to our stars and writer this week! As each week goes buy it is incredibly hard to choose who has writer and stars as I can see in everyone's books, just how much effort everyone is putting in! 


We have come to the end of our English unit this week and we will be looking at writing our final piece at the start of next week. We will then start a new topic of poetry which will take next week and a bit of the week after. 


In maths, we have been recapping different methods for adding and subtracting. We will look moving on next week to multiplication using a variety of methods with multiplying 3 and 4 digit numbers by 1 and 2 digits. 


We started our new topic 'Space' in Science which cause a lot of excitement within the classroom. We first looked at the size and order of other planets with our solar system by using our maths to work our the sizes of each planet using play-dough. After we went went outside and measure the distances between each planet and the sun. The children use trundle wheel which was a new way of measuring for them. We had great fun and have learnt a lot! Next week, we will look at how the Earth moves around the sun and how the moon moves around the Earth. 


In Geography, we have been learning about the Alps. We have been able to identify where the Alps are and what countries they go into. We have looked at human an physical features and have looked in depth at a place called 'Innsbruck'. Next week, we will look at how the local area is used ready for a comparison the following week. 


In RE, we started our new topic called Hope. We spent a lot of time looking at what hope means and our prayer service reflected this theme. Well done to everyone in our prayer service as everyone said their lines lovely with very little practises! 

Well done!
