    We have had a very busy week.

    We thought Aspiration Day was fun as we met so many people who did different jobs. We enjoyed learning about the firefighters and the qualifications they needed to join the service.  We were excited to be a volunteer for the magician in assembly this morning.  We were excited to try on and examine the equipment from the RAF sergent.

    We are enjoying using our Skills Builder skills, e.g., speaking and teamwork in our PE sessions whilst playing rounders.

    In History, we used our imagination to draw our version of a Benin Bronze plaque.

    Our Grafham trip was a success! 

    Thank you to all parents and carers who supported the children with their packing and preparation for the trip.

    The accomodation was fantastic, and the children have grown in their independence as they helped tidy and organise their rooms and helped clear the tables after their meals.

    We exhausted ourselves with some exciting experiences and had opportunities to use our Skills Builder skills; we used our listening skills to learn how to use the canoes on the beautiful reservoir, our perseverance skills to climb up the 10 metre high climbing wall and our team-working skills to create a crate stack that almost reached the top of the building!  We came away from our wonderful trip will lots of happy memories.

    In Maths, we completed our lessons on fractions.  We can now add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and place them on a numberline.

    In History, we walked around our historical village and discovered where Romans and Anglo Saxons once lived.  We measured out the Long Hall and it was huge!

    Grafham visit - a final letter has been sent out regarding the visit.  Remember- lunch on Monday, no electronics, clothes for all season.

    Talk homework - explain what the 'left over' part is in a division - what is it called? how can you show it using match sticks?

    In maths, we enjoyed learning about different methods of division and some of us said they were struggling with division but found the part/ whole a useful tool to help solve the calculation. 

    We thought English was fun as we had to use our imagination to draw the descriptive setting from our Power of Reading book.  We are enjoying meeting new characters and finding out what the new island holds and excited to find out what will happen next.

    In Geography this week, we learnt about water pollution and we had a visitor from Anglian Water who provided an eventful day for us and we learnt some fun facts, e.g., it takes1300 litres to make a single loaf of bread!

    On field, we enjoyed learning new skills in hockey and this week, we practised running with the ball and how to keep each other safe.

    In History this week, we looked back at Roman innovations and found out about what happened in Britain before our time.  We enjoyed learning about the different Roman baths - Caldarium, Tepidarium, Frigidarium.

    We continued learning about the Romans in History and how some Celts disliked them and found Boudica's story a fascinating one.
