I have been so impressed with Otter class this week, they have all worked so hard. Thank you.

This week the children’s imagination and unbelievable poetic skills have come to light creating some brilliant poems about Storm which they will be finishing off creating Winter poetry next week. After wards they will begin a new section of instruction writing. This is just some of Otter class’s amazing poetry ideas:

In the horrible, terrifying storm the tidal waves goes whoosh, whoosh, whoosh. It is like a whale jumping into the sea and it is a giant whipping the sea.

We have finished our work on fractions for the moment which is notoriously tricky but Otters had great determination and resilience using Lego, talking lots about food, our bodies and many different ways to show fractions. We will be moving onto money next week.

Lots of opportunities this week across a range of subjects: talking about bullying, creating the Christmas cards for the Cauliflower cards (yes it is the middle of November), played Netball and some problem solving games, played the violin and learnt new vocabulary in French.

Homework is due in on the 23rd so you have a bit of time to do it.

Hopefully you will have an email, detailing you about a trip on the 24th November, around local rivers in Chagford learning all about our class name: the Otter. Please let me know if you have any questions about it.

Unfortunately I am not in school next week as I will be on the year 5/6 residential at Grenville House. I will have my laptop so if you have any urgent questions you can email but the class will be in the capable hands of Sheila D’Arch Smith and Beth Dooley who are more than happy to talk about anything during the week.
