We have spotted so many connections between the different areas of our learning this week! We were finding out more about the classification of living things and then we realised that some of us had been reading about bacteria and viruses on Read Theory. Then we were doing our blogging morning mission for Advent about the meanings of names and there were links to classification again as well as links to our word roots work earlier in the term. Lots of our names have Greek and Latin origins! Mr Littlewood’s storytelling linked with our Ancient Greek workshop during our trip to Wollaton Hall and absolutely tons of our Maths work this week has built on the things we have learned earlier on in Key Stage 2. I wonder what we will notice next week!

Learn Its for next week will continue to be 7 x 8 = 56, 8 x 8 = 64 and 9 x 8  = 72

Here is the link to the website we were looking at in Science; there was so much to look at and not enough time!

Advent challenge 2

The words ‘Christ’ and ‘Messiah’ mean anointed or chosen one. ‘Immanuel’ means God with us. All of these names are given to Jesus and the names have real meaning and power. Can you find out the meanings of your name and some of your family members’ names?

I’ll start of with my girls’ names: Isobel means God is my oath and Erin means Ireland
