 This weeks Gems are: Alfie Mullen and Evan Stead . Our resilient Rex's are Amelia Adamcyzk and Alfie Cass. Elliot Holderness and Lucy Bates are our home work stars, well done guys!



In English this week we have been reading and writing about our new book 'A Sailing Boat In the Sky'. We have been writing a character description and a persuasive letter to be allowed to visit a beautiful island.

We have also been thinking about Thorpe and writing a description about how it could become the perfect place. This has been extended to researching and comparing holiday destinations and writing a detailed review about our own special holiday place to visit.

Focusing on Iceland this week, we have designed and written a persuasive brochure page to show people why they should visit. The brochure pages will go into our big writing books and they look amazing.



In maths this week we have been looking at fractions and their properties. We have been working out how to find the fraction of a whole number (divide by the bottom, multiply by the top).

Our fraction work has been extended this week and we have been working with equivalent fractions.

We have also looked at bigger and smaller fractions where we have found out that the larger the denominator, the smaller the fraction when the numerators are the same.

Our work has now included understanding dates and time. This has involved learning the months and how many days they each have, days in a year, and seconds per minute/minutes per hour. 



On Thursday lunchtime we ate together outside to celebrate the royal wedding.

Our theme for this half term is 'Does the Perfect place exist'.

We have looked at different parts of the world and how places can be very different.  

In science we are researching plants and the jobs that their different parts do.

The language we are learning this year is French where so far we have learned instructions and greetings. 

P.E will be outside  on a Tuesdays and indoor on Thursdays.

We now have some amazing wall bars in our hall and we have had great fun, safely trying these out.
