This week the children have started to learn about persuasive text features within a formal letter. They have also been looking at times tables and multiplication, 3, 4, and 8s for year 3 and 6s, 7s and 9s for year 4.
During Topic the children worked in pairs to research an American State, during RE they looked at the Buddhist festival 'Vesak' and made some lanterns. In PE we worked collaboratively and played some traditional playground games in our houses. The children also got to experience the new running track!!!

In English we planned and wrote all about a place we designed; we had some fantastic ideas (Tarantula Town, Crystal City and Tropical City all sounded interesting!).

Over the last 3 days the children have been introduced to a newly decorated classroom, a Geography based topic and have welcomed new friends.
We had a look at the different kinds of maps, and mapped out an area of the school in the style of an ordnance survey map. The children enjoyed working outside to draft out their ideas.
