Week 7 - 17th October

This week in English, the children have been learning all about riddles. They learnt about the different poetic language used and had to use this to describe different objects in a game of ‘Guess What’s in the Bag?’. They really enjoyed listening to the descriptions and trying to guess the object! They then used their knowledge of poetry to help improve some very boring riddles! On Wednesday they planned their own riddles and on Thursday, began writing them. The poetic language that the children used was brilliant! Check out ‘Our Week In Pictures’ to see some videos of the children performing their riddles.


In Maths, the children have been learning about negative numbers. They learnt how to find the difference between two numbers, learnt about negative numbers in the context of temperature and are able to order numbers. It has been very difficult but we are persevering and learning more each day.


We had our final swimming lesson where the children had the opportunity to swim in the big pool and show us how far they could swim! They then were able to enjoy the last part of the lesson with some free time, playing with floats and balls in the pool.


In Science, the children have been learning about conductors and insulators. They used this information to help them to build a switch for their circuit and have a better understanding of how a circuit works and how it can be switched on and off.


The week ended with our Celebration Session which the children chose at the start of the year. They had decided on a Halloween Horror Party so they played some Halloween games, decorated some Halloween biscuits and watched some Spooky Stories! It was a fabulous end to a fantastic half term!


We also said a sad goodbye to two much loved girls, Nina and Faye. It was sad to see them go but we know that they will thrive in their new schools. Good luck!


Well done B4 for all of your hard work this half term!
