This Week’s Learning

In Topic this week, we have been writing a non-chronological report about the Stone Age. First, we gathered vocabulary and discussed the features of a report. After that, we planned our report, thinking carefully about the language we needed to use. Then, we wrote our reports.

This week, we also went on a school trip to the British Museum, which was fantastic. We traveled there by train and by tube. At the Museum, we looked at exhibits from the Stone Age, Bronze Age, Iron Age and the Roman Era. We were really interested by the body of a man who had been preserved in a bog! We also saw lots of interesting artifacts, including tools, pots and other interesting objects. A huge thank you to all the parents who helped us on the trip!

In Maths this week, we have been continuing our work on division by using the formal (short) method to help us solve division problems. We also drew bar models to represent these problems.

SFS Events – Athlete Event

Dear Parents/Carers,

Letters will be given to your children next week however, hopefully you are already aware of the exciting upcoming event with Frederick Afrifa. On the 30th and 31st of January, he will be coming into school to do a fitness workout with all of the children (one class at a time). He will then deliver an assembly where the children can ask him questions and discuss his training.

We are very excited to be working with ‘Sports for Schools’ with this event who support athletes in the journey but also give 60% of the money raised back to the school for equipment so they can continue to promote participation in sport.

Please can we encourage you to complete your sponsorship using the following link:
