A lot of sport has again been achieved this week! - Well done to all of you who have represented the school in any shape or form (including the speaking competition people!)!
We are really trying to get our test technique ready now with the SATs tests not too far away. I hope that you can all have a good relax over the weekend and if you feel you can, have a good go at the things on here, or mathletics that can help you!
Also enjoy a good book and discuss it with somebody...talk about what it's about and the language choices the author has used etc.
We re-read our Alex Ryder text and compared it to another one; we located the similarities between the format of the text types.
We then 'boxed up' the writing in to sections to enable us to structure our own writing for a gadget next week!
(Remember, maths is not looking for x but finding out whY!)
Today we had a look at using coordinates within the 4 quadrants...we will be looking at this skill again tomorrow.
Well done to all of you who pushed yourself to understand this concept.
What order do we have to show our answers when finding positions within quadrants?
We have five words that need to be in the post this week:

It is unlikely we will have the time to do a first draft in class this week so do your best if you can find the time to have a go...
Several families have yet to sign up for Parents' Meetings: this is an important time to discuss the progress your child is making. Please see me to make an appointment and thanks to those who have done so already.
We had a fantastic time in maths today.
We looked at these shapes and discussed how we saw them grow / change / develop. This in itself was intriguing because so many of us saw it in a different way.
We then talked about the numbers of squares we could see in each pattern and how we could calculate what would be in shape 100 etc.
Can anyone remember the formulae we came up with for this?
- When we discovered the pattern I remember a certain member of the class saying "that's amazing!" (Which, as a teacher, is just so great to hear) And many others were excited by the discovery too! Well done you Elder Mathematicians!
This week we are looking at size for the prompt:
..but how can something so tiny …
Things to consider:
Another week full of a huge variety of things!
Many sporting events have occurred; your writing is developing really well; you're understanding more about what will be involved in your SATs Tests; you're doing a great job as ambassadors of the school...
Next week is "International Week" - expect to learn about lots of different places and to enjoy time with other classes within our school community.
Have a great weekend.
