Reading Around the World
Our new classes have really enjoyed reading to reach our target destination. We have read enough pages of our books to get to Germany and our treat will be a well deserved hotdog! We are looking forward to selecting our next destination and enjoying further rewards for all of our efforts. Well done 5BC and 5KR!
Autumn term update
In English, we have been focusing on the tragic play, Romeo and Juliet. So far we have researched the Tudor period and learnt about Shakespeare's life. We have also read and performed key scenes from the Romeo and Juliet script.
35 of our pupils will be performing an abridged version of Romeo and Juliet at the Marina Theatre on Tuesday 19th November 2019. Tickets are now on sale from the Marina Theatre Box Office.
Our classes have made an amazing start to their Maths work this term. In the first week, children enjoyed a series of Inspirational Maths Sessions. They thought of creative ways to solve mathematical problems, including how to cut a square out of a piece of paper by using just one cut! We were very impressed with the methods pupils used and loved the fact that they celebrated their mistakes as well as their achievements. We have also been working on the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) and practising our rounding to aid accuracy when estimating answers. Pupils have shown real determination to strengthen their knowledge and skills. Fantastic work from both classes so far!
