Week beginning 06.10.14

We started a new topic in RE this week called life choices. We began by discussing how we can maintain a friendship. The children came up with some wonderful ideas and transferred these into a magazine article, giving advice on how to be a good friend. Later on in this unit we will be looking at family and marriage.
In English we have been continuing with our topic fables, myths and legends. The children finished writing their version of Robin Hood and they were all absolutely fantastic. We definitely have some budding authors in class 5! We will be finishing this unit before half term, by looking at myths in more detail.
We began looking at shape in maths this week. The children identified the properties of 2D shapes and worked out the perimeter of shapes where the lengths of some sides were missing. We will be continuing with shape next week, progressing onto calculating the area of different shapes.
We are continuing to study the Ancient Greeks in History. It is lovely to see the children so enthusiastic about this topic, with some children opting to take home information books to read in their own time.
The children are very enthusiastic during their computing lesson on a Wednesday with Mrs Luckhurst. They are using a programme called Scratch to create their own computer games. I know the children are fantastic with technology and have been a great help to her!
Class 5 enjoyed 2M’s fantastic assembly this Friday and are very much looking forward to their assembly at the end of November!
