We are thinking about what we would like to do for fundraising at our Christmas Fair.
Have a think...the only thing we really are trying to avoid is food, due to allergies and stepping on the toes of other stalls that are at the Christmas Fair.
We will start finalising ideas next week.
Any questions, then please ask.
Sam's 100WC winning entry has been illustrated by the artist Terry Culkin who is a great supporter of the 100WC project.
Terry picks 2 or 3 entries each week to illustrate.
It's a wonderful image, to go with some wonderful writing, which also feels particularly poignant as remembrance day approaches on this centenary year of the end of World War 1.
A very unique piece of work which sits superbly with the writing.
We had a great talk from Fraser at the RNLI about the role of the charity. He told us about the work that they do, how many lives it saves and how much it costs to keep them functioning.
What did you find most interesting?
This week’s prompt will have you all imagining someone saying this I’m sure! In fact, I think I have been guilty of saying it!
The prompt is:
… because I said so...
A lot of break through moments have happened this week for lots of us in the class with regards long multiplication.
We have been building deep and solid understanding - talking through in detail why we estimate and what is 'actually' happening at each stage of the method.
Have some practise over the break if you want to embed the skills even more!
Thank you to all the families who were able to attend the information evening at school tonight.
A letter will be going home with the children tomorrow for a declaration of interest.
The link to the prezi that was shared with families should be available by clicking here.
We have a set of 5 words for this week. As usual, they must all be in the post but can be in any order. They are:

As we work our way through the four mathematics operations, we stopped to focus on multiplication and we discussed what multiplication is and why you would and wouldn't use formal written methods.
e.g. you wouldn't use a formal column method to calculate 700 x 300 (because we know 7 x 3 and we can move forward from there...).
What did you think of the game 'how close to 100?'
There was some great creativity on show in our woodland workshop environment today.
What did you create in our stick challenge today?
