 Hello,

 

This week in English we have been reading George and the Dragon by Chris Wormell. The dragon in the story had a big secret, we began the week by making predictions about what he could be scared of. The children were able to think of some great ideas and added interesting adjectives to their writing. Throughout the book similes are used. The children were able to think of their own similes to describe both the dragon and the mouse. To end the week we thought about changing the character that the dragon could be scared of, the children were encouraged to use the thesaurus to include interesting and ambitious vocabulary. 

In maths this week we have been looking at statistics. We have completed tally charts, pictograms and Block diagrams. The children have been able to record their own data and interpret their results.

I have set some activities on Mathletics for the children to complete. 

In science, we went on a walk around the school to observe both plants and trees. The children were able to draw and label pictures of a variety of plants. We discussed the functions of the parts of a plant.

On Tuesday we were treated to a drama workshop, where the children became pirates, mermaids and fairies and had to escape Captain Hook. Great fun was had by all. 

On Wednesday, we had our first session of forest school, despite the wet weather the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and showed great collaboration in den making.

Our big question this term is 'Who is a Muslim and what do they believe?' This week we were looking at Mosques and what happens in them. The children were able to recall a wide range of information about the different practices that take place within a Mosque. 

Thank you for your continued support. 

Jess Salvidge.

 Reading 

It is important that the children are reading daily; this could be them reading a few pages of their book to you, or you sharing a story with them. Please make sure that you record in the planner with the title of the book and what page they have read up to.
