Another week has flown past and I had forgotten to tell you how we did with the Halloween cake sale. Thank you all very much for the fantastic contributions. Between the sale itself and a break time sale the next day, we completely sold out and made a magnificent £100 for the PTFA. The children helped set up and run the stalls and I quickly found out how brilliant they were at pulling together as a team.
On Tuesday 29th November we have a visit to Plymouth ‘Energy from waste’ site (organised originally by Mr Finch to support past work on sustainability). I have sent a letter home with the children and would be grateful if you could return the reply slip. There is a cost of £6.71 for the trip and Mrs Lawson will let you know as soon as the School Gateway payment system has gone live.
We are in the midst of our work on writing a poetic narrative in the style of The Snow Leopard – I think that we shall see some beautiful stories emerge.
In maths, having covered all the methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, we shall next week be looking at BIDMAS(Brackets, Indices, Division/Multiplication, Addition/Subtraction) to help us understand which order to perform the operations in when faced with a mixed calculation.
Our Geography work is on informal settlements which has linked beautifully with our recent learning on the migration of people to cities during the Industrial Revolution.
Have a great weekend.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
