This week in English we have been continuing with our theme of Perseus and Medusa, innovating diaries and changing perspectives. On Monday, we created our own toolkit success criteria’s for what makes a good diary. These where interesting to read as we all had lots of different ideas! Some of us made short, yet effective success criteria’s, and others made big lists which will help us to remember everything when we come to writing our own diary perspective next week! In English this week, we have also been looking at drop in clauses (also known as embedded clauses- this weekend’s home learning!) during our SPaG lessons. We created our own silly sentences and then wrote our own. They are brilliant to read and the children have really gone the hang of them.

In maths this week, we have be learning to read and covert scales to the nearest 100g from KG. We weighed different fruit, objects and food and converted them on to tables. We then moved onto interpreting this data we collect onto bar charts. This has been really fun, especially today when we made up our own questions, converting our answers onto tally charts, generating frequencies and then converting them into bar charts.  We had some very interesting questions and results from the different bar charts!

In topic, we have been writing about our trip to Chedworth Roman Villa and completing our Roman shields. It was brilliant to reminisce about the school trip, listening to each other’s experiences and what they learnt.

Music and PE have been connected this week. In PE, we have been practicing our dance we will be performing in the school nativity, and today we learnt our second dance, which a very powerful tango! We all have our tango faces at the ready and have done really well at learning the second dance. In music, we have also been continuing the theme of the school nativity, practicing all the songs we will be singing that evening. The children sound brilliant and everyone cannot wait to perform.

Here is to another brilliant week!
