 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!



Our new book in English is Moone Boy. 

We have designed our own 'notion potion'. This has included drawing and writing our ideas about what we need to create brilliant work. Some of our potions have included important ingredients such as 'creativity', 'imagination', 'independence', and 'resilience'.

We have been developing our sentences by using a range of conjunctions and written our own instructions on how to make a notion potion using these conjunctions. 




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.

We have used clockwise and anticlockwise to find which way we are facing on a compass North, East, South, West (naughty elephants squirt water.) 

In our angles work we have looked at the different types of angles according to the degrees they are, acute, right, obtuse angles. 



Our theme for this half term is 'Pulleys and Gears'.


In science we are researching Forces and Magnets and discovering what we use in different pull and push forces


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.
