This week in English we are learning: To understand the importance of commas in our work.To produce a final version of a diary entry.
This week in maths we are learning: To understand and use long division.
Thank you to everyone who has brought in their Viking homework - it all looks brilliant and we look forward to sharing it next week. There are definitely enough shields for that battle I was envisaging!
The children have been working hard on their multiplication and division over the last couple of weeks. They have become editors during English and are learning how important it is to analyse their writing to make improvements and changes.
Our microorganism investigation has come to an interesting (and slightly disgusting!) end. The children have been keen to check their bread every day and record their observations. Have a look for yourselves at some of the results...
Four weeks in and the children have already done so much! Year six have been to Okehampton and Year five were very busy working on projects and fantastic narrative writing whilst we were away. They also enjoyed their Mill on the Brue trip last week. New experiences like these are important for children and have supported our recent written work in English.
Thank you to the homework projects which have come in so far. I feel a Viking battle (re-enactment!) coming on!
Here are some photos that have been taken over the first few weeks...
A big hello and welcome to all of the children and their adults as we start another busy year in Osprey class. Please see the class newsletter for details about the forthcoming term and the learning that will be taking place.
