W/C 14th September 2020
What a great start to the week - we used the VR Headsets to experience what it would be like to visit a desert! The children have come up with some very ambitious vocabulary which will be brilliant when they publish on Friday.
Throughout the week, the children have really developed their passion for writing and are now really writing some incredible passages.
It was a tough week with arithmetic, the children learnt the formal method for long multiplication, but with a lot of resilience and determination every child is now able to use the formal method.
During the afternoon learning, the children have been learning about different climates and what it would be like to live in Mexico. In Science, they have studied different forces on everyday objects.

What a fantastic start to the school year!
We have started the week by locating Mexico on a world map and also looking at the different continents.
Every afternoon, we now have a session called 'Wider Reading'. This session gives the children an opportunity to read texts that they may not usually choose around the topic we are studying (Encompass - Mexico, Science - Forces, PHSE/RE - World Religions, Art/Music - Modern day art)
The children have really tried to impress on the baseline tests they have been completing in SPaG, writing, reading and maths.
