In English this week we have continued to write our disaster story based on the book Flood by Alvaro F. Villa. The children have been using personification very effectively in their writing to describe the power of the storm and the damage that it caused.
This week in maths we carried on with our Statistics work and focused on how to interpret data in tables. We learnt that data can be presented in tables in different ways and the children drew their own tables based on the different fruits they liked.
In our Wednesday PE lessons this half-term we are focusing on Health and Fitness. Last week we carried out two circuits with different stations; we discussed the different parts of the body each exercise affected and how it made us feel. By the end we were all feeling quite tired but the children showed Steadfast Squirrel attitudes and persevered! This week we focused on our core strength and carried out a series of one minute challenges that used our core in different ways; this was also challenging but I was very impressed with how many children didn’t give up!
We had a great day for World Book Day! We spent time before lunch sharing our stories with the class and after lunch we paired up with children from Year 6 to talk about and share the books we had brought to school. We also enjoyed spending time in the library at the of the day to choose books and share them with each other!
