 Your Classteacher is Mrs Boulder.

Your Teaching Assistant is Mrs Sides.

It has been lovely seeing everyone again after half-term! We have been finding out abut the mathematics of spirals in Maths and have found out how to create Archimedes and Baravelle spirals. In English, we have started work on a new book, 'Odd and the Frost Giants' and finding interesting and descriptive vocabulary that we can use in our own writing.

We had our Mayan day on Tuesday where got to play Mayan musical instruments, did Mayan chanting, wore Mayan costumes and found out lots of amazing facts. In Science, we created a human model of the circulatory system in PSHE, we found out what self-esteem is and thought of positive messages we can tell ourselves. In RE we watched some videos about stories from the Christian and Buddhist faiths and compared them and in Art, we started work on our new graffiti art topic as well as starting our set of cornet lessons in music with Mr Eccles.


Next week, we are learning about number properties and in English, we will be writing a descriptive piece based on 'Odd and the Frost Giants'. We we will also be carrying on with our other topics.
