In Maths, we have been multiplying and dividing numbers by 100…we know to move each digit up or down two place values, as each digit is getting 100 times greater or smaller. We have also been using different methods for subtraction-we don’t want to become too reliant on just one way to solve subtractions,  when other ways may be more efficient!

In English, we have started looking a new text ‘Sugarcane Juice’ which is set in Pakistan. This week, we have been looking at some ‘power’ words  from the text and using them in our own sentences.

In RE, we have been looking at a piece of art, depicting Jesus in the Wilderness. This has evoked some questions, which we have noted down, and asked our friends to respond to. Next week, we will compare our own responses and reflections with our friends.

In Science, we have been researching the temperatures that some materials change states. We were very surprised to find out that aluminium changes states to a liquid at 660 degrees Celsius…this is very high!

In Geography, we produced some great information posters on Fair Trade. As our topic is ‘Where Does Our Food Come From?’, this really helped us to understand how important it is for poorer countries to be paid a fair prices for the products we have imported over to us.


This week’s Golden Award went to Hollie for being so focused in class. I have noticed huge improvements in her work this week -keep it up!

This week’s Writing Award went to Lily. I was so impressed with her determination to improve her own work. She really thought about what edits to make, and her second draft blew me away!


As we are going to St Mary’s on Wednesday afternoon, to partake in different athletic events, the children will need to come to school in their PE kit on this day. Due to this, we will not be having PE on Tuesday, so children can come in their normal uniform on this day-this is for this week only!

Enjoy your weekend!
