Think back to the moment when the king has sent Orion off to find the goblin.
The children are continuing to impress with the delivery of their lines and their learning of the many songs; the next stage is to belt them out!
It was lovely to see so many of you coming along to the Arts Exhibition on Thursday evening. There were lots of lovely comments about your work and we hope you are proud of what you achieved.
Sunday 18th November Phew! That was quite a week! We had a marvellous morning on Monday as we spent time with Jon, Louise and Mark who told us all about their different careers in engineering, project management and anaesthetics. It was a fantastic opportunity for us all to learn about the world of work; huge thanks to all three of you for giving up your time.
We tackled column subtraction on Tuesday and applied our skills to word problems later in the week. On Wednesday, we were met with the shocking news that Susie Celery had been kidnapped from Class 8.
It was nice to be back after our short stint at Main School whilst our new windows, doors and playground were put in. We put the playground to good use straight away with hockey lessons on Monday andpractised our skills in small games. In Maths, the children revised their understanding of column addition and in Literacy, we thought about figurative language and how to describe the senses in setting descriptions.

We have started learning the accompanying songs too and the dancers have started to choreograph their routine! We might even try and squeeze in a little Maths and Literacy! Tuesday 30th October What a week we had up at Main School.
We immersed ourselves in the arts and learnt a little about WW1 as the centenary of the end of the war approaches. We worked with Ruth Sayers, who delivered some amazing drama workshops which saw the children working in groups to capture moments which may have been witnessed at the start of the war: Excellent work was seen across the classes.
Poppies were created using textiles and we practised our sewing skills. Using recycled book pages, we produced blackout poems on the theme of WW1 and wrote imagined letters home from the trenches. Mrs Blackburn introduced Mars by Holst to the children and worked with us to create ostinato rhythms similar to those heard throughout the piece.
There were dance lessons, delivered by Mrs Cresswell, themed around music heard in the s, and there were lots of art pieces created too.
Because we were off timetable though we still managed paceball sessions! No coloured spelling patterns this week - it's the holidays! If you're going out to enjoy Halloween or to see any fireworks displays, please be careful and keep safe!
See you next half term! Would you risk your life by climbing on a self-made raft to make your way along the Amazon River or would you risk staying put beneath the canopy of the rainforest?
In Science, we wrote simple stories to show our understanding of the life cycle of birds after watching some very sweet videos of baby blackbirds as they hatched, grew and eventually left the nest.
It has not made it an easy task to sort parts and Thursday night saw the teachers pouring over lists of names in the style of the X-Factor judges!
Congratulations to the recipients of our Animal Awards: We have also been creating different characters and scenarios for the Night Zookeeper team who came to work with us on Tuesday.
In Science, we learnt about the life cycle of frogs and how it compares to that of butterflies. We held our class councils to decide on a subject we thought would be good to take forward to our school council; we voted to discuss reducing plastic, reducing the amount of sugar in food and having cooking lessons at school.
In Maths, we continued our work on place value, focussing on decimal numbers, and in Literacy, we looked at persuasive features and wrote some convincing arguments for receiving a new pet — watch out for those Christmas letters!
In Literacy, we have been getting our heads around different sentence types, what a main clause is and how conjunctions can be used within compound and complex sentences. Maths lessons found us counting on and back in powers of 10 and having to think carefully about what happens when we cross over a place value bridge.
Our butterflies have begun to emerge this week though some, unfortunately, have not survived. A few of our fluttery friends have been released whilst we wait for others to hatch. Hopefully, there will be some warmer days next week on which to release any late arrivals.Descriptive or Expressive Statistics - Statistics We define statistics as a branch of mathematics as a means to analyze, understand what we observe and explain synopses, so as to create sense and meaning of our explanations and observations.
