    Spring 1 Week 5

    We have been very busy this week. The children have been working hard on their volcano and tsunami work by bringing it to life through art as well as doing research based on a famous volcano and tsunami to write for their very own newspaper report. The children have really got in to the swing of being brilliant journalists. In Maths we have been working really hard on time - we began a couple of months ago by looking at o'clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to, we are now moving on to the five minute markers and have been looking at five past this week - some children even wowing us by writing it in digital time. Also in Maths we have been dividing 1- and 2-digit numbers by 100 and started to count in hundredths - we are just super. The children are still asking fantastic questions about the topic and some are even starting to bring in projects they have been completing at home - we love to see these so please make, write, build anything you like and bring them in.

    We are in a weekly timestable rockstars and reading competition with the whole school and if you win you get chocolate biscuits, unfortunately year 4 aren't doing well and we would really like the chocolate biscuits so keep reading at least three times a week please!
