This week’s learning….

In Maths we have been focusing on 5-digit place value. We have been reading, writing, comparing and rounding numbers with 10,000s, and what a good job we have been doing too1

In English, we have been looking at the traditional tale of ‘Rumpelstiltskin’. We are going to use this story to put a character on trial for their crimes by writing a play script of the courtroom scene. To help us prepare for this, we have been familiarising ourselves with the story and the characters and acting out some parts.

In RE, we have been thinking about how our behaviour and our actions are influenced by our beliefs. Knowing that Jesus truly is ‘The way, the truth and the life’ has really helped us to explain why we (and others) behave in certain ways, for example going to church, forgiving others, praying, raising money for charities…

In History, we have used images of Ancient Image to help us get an insight into what life was like during the time of Egypt all those 1000s of years ago. We are loving this new topic so far and we have so much more interesting things to learn!

In Science we have been looking at which parts of the body (which we can’t see), make up the digestive system. We put actions to each part to help us remember the function of the mouth, oesophagus, stomach and intestines…test us at home!


This week’s Golden Award went to Joseph for really developing his Growth Mindset, and showing resilience in the face of a challenge!

This week’s writing award went to Samuel for his fantastic use of our ‘power’ words in both his spoken and written English!

I hope you enjoy your lovely long weekend!
