What a busy but AMAZING week we've had! 

In Maths this week we started off our learning about place value, identifying the value of digits in numbers up to 1,000,000. We then ordered numbers in size. In English, we started to read "Coming to England" by Floella Benjamin, which is about her memories of childhood and her journey from Trinidad to England. We then thought about the different memories we have of our own childhood and wrote about them.

As part of our Science for this week, we were lucky enough to experience the sights and sounds of the Planetarium, which was awesome! Were were given a guided tour of the Solar System in a unique and thrilling way. In RE, we began to find out some key beliefs of Judaism and in PSHE we learnt about the UN Convention's Rights of the Child.

To finish off the week, we had so much fun learning some Urban Dance skills as well as top tips from Andy about how to stay positive and focussed in everything we do.


Next week in Maths we continue with place value and will be comparing numbers. In English we will continue to read Coming to England and will focus on retrieving and then presenting some factual information about the Windrush Generation.



Have a lovely weekend and see you on Monday!
