I have had a few problems with the blog uploading the blog the last few weeks, so fingers crossed it will work properly today! I think I have updated last weeks as I think only half loaded.
Thank you for your attendance at Parent’s Evening this week- it is always lovely to discuss the progress that the children have made over the year. I am really proud of all of the children.
We loved World Book Day! It was such good fun to guess which nursery rhyme characters the children were dressed as and the costumes were so imaginative. We very much enjoyed the hilarious catwalk at the start of the morning and then writing diary entries for the characters we came dressed as. The children also performed their nursery rhymes, thinking about intonation, volume and actions. Throughout the day, the Grand Old Duke of York came round the school with a horn to signal that we had reading time. The children thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to read for pleasure and also were pleased to finish Kensuke’s Kingdom, which has really engaged them over the past few weeks.
In English, we have been working on diary entries and we immersed ourselves in the new text type, reading lots of different examples, including our own school log book diary, which dates back 157 years! The children have had lots of engaging conversations about the purpose of diaries.
In Maths, the children have continued to work on multiplication of three digit numbers, focussing on the standard, compact method and problems based on this.
Enjoy looking through the World Book Day photos! Have a good weekend!
