Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
After my late start to the term, we now seem to be back into full swing and forging ahead with our learning.
The ‘Snow Leopard’ stories are now mostly ready for display. I have been really touched by the effort put into the descriptions in the children’s stories and also to the detailed editing that was done prior to the write-up. I can really see now that the rules of punctuation are being absorbed and demonstrated and that spelling is improving which makes the beautiful content of the stories even more pleasurable to read.
In maths, we have made a new best friend this week … 10%! Our friend has helped us be able to calculate any other fraction of an amount and we are feeling more confident. We shall be moving on to area and perimeter next.
On a lighter note, I promised the children a taste of haggis, neeps and tatties for Burns’ night next week. I shall be getting an ‘original’ and a vegetarian haggis and the tasting (on Tuesday) will not be compulsory but do drop me a line if your child has a related food allergy (I shall also check the school system for details but I thought I’d mention it anyway)
We have reached the time of year when progress really starts to become evident and I am pleased to say that everyone is taking huge strides in their learning. Well done everyone, keep up the good work and keep reading!
