Welcome back, we hope the children (and you) enjoyed the half term and are feeling refreshed for the final few weeks. This week we have welcomed two new children to the class and the class have made an excellent effort to welcome them to Tardebigge.
In English this week we have looked at recounts, the children wrote one on Monday about an event from their half terms, then we studied the features on Tuesday and edited them on Wednesday to redraft them on Thursday, to make them even better.
In maths, we learned different approaches and completed a few more problems on length, before moving on to further multiplication and division. We have began by multiplying multiples of ten by a single digit number, such as 4 x 50. We did this with a range of methods, but have been reninforced that we can simplify the calculation (4 x 5), then make it ten times greater at the end.
In our topic work, lots of children have continued completing their print template inspired by Mayan designs and a tourist information book for anyone wishing to travel back in time to meet the Maya!
On Wednesday afternoon we were invited to Birchensale Middle School for an afternoon of outdoor education. The children at the middle school had planned a range of exciting and interesting team building activities, which the children really enjoyed. We were really impressed with the manners and behaviour of the children from school.
We hope you have all had the letters for The Big Sing on Monday 18th June. We are all really looking forward to the event. If there are any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Finally, Mr Bennett would like to say a huge thank you to all of the parents who have put together to make the very generous basket of baby goodies! It has been overwhelming to receive so many lovely gifts and wishes, and Baby Bennett will certainly be a very spoilt little lady when she arrives!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Mrs Horton and Mr Bennett.
