Another great week has passed in Birch Class!
In English, we've been finishing our final drafts of our hotel brochure. The Year 5s in Birch Class have produced extra persuasive and extra spooky brochures. We have also been reading the Nothing to See Here Hotel in class. Ask the students about Nancy the chef and Mrs. V who lives in the conservatory. They should be able to tell you about the nasty goblin prince, Grogbah, and tell you their predictions for the rest of the story!
We have started a new maths topic, recapping different methods for adding and subtracting four digit numbers before finding ot how to do it with more than four digits. They can even solve problems that include both adding and subtracting in the same question!
Since the last blog post, the Year combined Year 5 and 6 class have continued to learn about Richard and John before we moved on to John's grandson, Edward I. Ask them about his invasions of Scotland AND Wales and how he improved parliament as they have been putting together a fact file on his life.
Finally, a big congratulations to the students are their amazing singing at the Harvest Festival this past Wednesday. You were all wonderful! And thank you to everyone who donated!
