We have all finished our mini sagas and will share these with you soon. Pupils were writing persuasive letters and invitations to encourage people to attend our upcoming MacMillan Coffee Morning on Friday 27th September so look out for these around the school soon. Next week pupils will be asked to write a persuasive letter to encourage the reader to do something in a circumstance of their choosing for example stop hunters, no school uniform, single use plastics, to allow them to demonstrate how they can apply the skills taught this week.
Home learning books have been issued and include passwords for online learning zones.

In maths we have focused on 4 times tables and our number work. Pupils are more confident, reading and writing larger numbers with increase ease. We looked at rounding numbers and most are now secure rounding to nearest 10, 100 and 1000.
Our China topic brainstorm map is shared in the app pic and its small to see - but t is PACKED FULL of questions and areas to explore generated by the pupils so its going to be a fun and interesting term.

We are looking for donations of any sets of Chinese Checkers and also as we head into the wintery months boxes of tissues if anyone has any spare ( gentler on little noses than the toilet roll)
