W/e 18th October

Date: 18th Oct 2019 @ 3:46pm

The end of another busy week.

The children had a great day at Chester Cathedral on Monday, learning about Benedictine monks, the purpose of prayer and St. Werburgh who has a shrine in the cathedral. Groups of children made sugar cane monks, pilgrim purses and memory books. One of the highlights was hearing the organ being played - an amazing sound.

In English we have completed our extended piece of writing based on the Lost Thing book. There is clear progress in grammar and vocabulary selection as the stories develop. We will be publishing our writing next week. The children started a new unit of spelling earlier in the week about silent letter t, they have a list of words in their planner. In guided reading this week we have focussed just on inference and I am really pleased with what the class has learnt.

In Maths we have completed our second unit of work on place value and will do the end of unit check on Monday. Our next unit focusses on addition and subtraction. As always, it is vital that the children keep up with their learning of all times tables up to 12 x 12.

We now have 3 beautiful pieces of work in topic books - actually it's nearly 3, the third needs another half hour. We are continuing studying the Ancient Islamic Empire after half term, there is plenty still to find out about.

Our next science lesson will be about irreversible changes and we will be finding out why the combining of certain materials makes this so. I've got everything crossed for the success of the Mentos challenge too.

The cathedral visit tied in well with our RE work on Christian community and to finish this off we will be interviewing Reverend Sandi about her role.

Looking forward to seeing you all at parent's consultations.
