Autumn 2

This half term we have a new class reader- the wonderful Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling. We will be using this as a basis for our learning about key stories and information texts in English. In Maths we are focusing on multiplication and division. We can't wait to see who will reign supreme in our times table-athon! In Science, we will be finding out all about the animal kingdom and how they digest food. And in our topic work we will be finding out all about rivers. We can't wait to get started!

Wow! As part of our river topic, we had a wonderful visit from Paul Mooney from Look North today. He told us all about how to become a weather man, why it is important to know about maps and compass directions and how he predicts the weather.

Today, the children have found out who they are trying to be kind to. This could be anything from a compliment, to a smile, to playing together in the playground. We want our children to always make the kind choice. We are going to link this work to This Morning's 'Be Kind' pledge. Find out more by clicking on the link below. And information about supporting your children with any concerns you have about friendships can be found in the relationships tab. We hope lots of our parents will be able to join us too for our friendship tales and activities.

31.10.17 Perimeter

This week the children have been looking for efficient ways to measure perimeters. They loved this video, and asked for it to be added to the website! 

Introduction to Perimeter

You will learn about "Basics of Perimeter" in this video. Perimeter is the shortest distance around a shape, i.e. if we walk along the sides of a shape, then the total distance travelled is its perimeter.

We hope you all had a wonderful relaxing holiday! We can't wait to see you tomorrow for some more fantastic learning!
