Week beginning 02.05.16

This week we have some photos of the children having fun writing their posts for their very own 'blog'! In computing they are learning how to write and post on a blog and they have lots of interesting things to share! We sent a letter home on Friday explaining about the primary blog with a username and password so that you can access it at home. E-safety is, of course, very important and we discussed this during the computing lesson on Wednesday.

In Literacy this week the children enjoyed planning their own story based on an event in their life. They used planning sheets to help them with clear headings; Opening, Build-up, Problem, Resolution, Ending. They will write their own personal narratives next week, hopefully creating interesting settings, plots and characters.

In Numeracy the children did well dividing and multiplying numbers with two and three decimals places. They learnt the pattern of moving the decimal point to the right for dividing, making the number smaller, and left for multiplying, making the number bigger.

In Topic the children have been learning about Anglo-Saxon religion and beliefs. They know that they were pagans and have researched many gods that they worshipped. We are all excited for our trip and are really looking forward to experiencing how the Anglo-Saxons lived!

Congratulations to Aine on winning so many medals and two trophies for Irish Dancing! She was called up in Assembly with some other girls on Friday by Mrs O'Brien to explain all about the competition. Mrs O'Brien was very impressed at how they understood all the complicated catagories for all the different dances!

We hope you enjoy the beautiful sun shine this weekend!
