This week we kicked off our learning with a special history mystery. The children were all very curious to discover items that were in the mystery box. There were some excellent predictions and suggestions but the children soon were able to acertain that the box had a Roman theme, thanks in the main to the Horrible Histories programme it seems. The children went on to look closely at the artefacts and sketched them as an archaeologist might. 

In maths this week we have been looking at arrays and using pictures to make multiplication sentences using the x symbol. The children are getting very quick at identifying equal and unegroups. In English we have been looking at the story of Little Red Riding Hood and retelling this well known tale. In Spelling we have been looking at the suffixes ment and ful and how they can be added to root words. The children have been enjoying Sirlinkalot and his videos on homophones too. 

In Science we have been learning about the different food groups and why it is so important to eat a varied diet.  We also learned some attacking and defending skills in PE and thoroughly enjoyed getting fresh air and exercise, which we know is so important for all animals including us humans. In RE we learned that the word Gospel means Good News and we talked about some good news that we have received recently. 

The children have been brilliant story-tellers this week as we have started our daily picture book challenge. Each child has been given the challenge to select a picture book to read to the class. Everyone has been given a date for this, please see planners for details.  I have set some mathletics and there is a new reading menu and home learning menu to select from. Have a great weekend.
