This week, we have had an amazing week!
We have been reading a story from the anthology called Laughter Land and answered some questions about it. We have also been doing able and ible and yesterday, we linked our topic to English and did some bullet points about Victorian games.
Are these able or ible? prob_ble, lov_ble, perish_ble, invinc_ble
We have continued our work on fractions and are feeling confident with simplifying, equivalence and comparing using common denominators. Next week, our Learn Its will continue on the 8x table.
We have continued with our topic of Evolution and started looking at the work of the famous Victorian naturalist, Charles Darwin. Maybe you could continue your research into your chosen animal. Remember the big idea is to find out more about different species of your chosen animal and how each has adapted to the different habitat it lives in.

We’ve had a great day as Ancient Greeks. We began by preparing our feast then found out more about the Olympics. We practised Zorba’s dance and even Mr Abbott and Mrs Rawson had a try at keeping up! Next, we held our own Olympics before finishing off with the feast. What was your best part?
How many of these can you complete before assembly? If you click on the image, it should enlarge…

In topic, we have being learning ancient Greek democracy vs modern UK democracy. Do you think all of Greek life was fair?
In English, we have learnt where to put commas in different places. Let’s see if you can add the commas in the sentence:
We need to buy from the shop eggs bacon crisps sweets sausages kale and salad. Do you need a colon?
We will be moving on again with our Learn Its onto step 10: the 4 x table. Can you post a link to any good websites that we might want to use to practise our 4x table?
We have also been finding common factors. Can you remember the song? What are the common factors of 46 and 12?
Don’t forget that it’s our Ancient Greece immersion day on Friday. What do you think we might be doing?

This week in maths, we have been looking at real life maths and the questions were about Ancient Greece. Also we have done some arithmetic in house teams.
In D.A.R.E., we learnt about if you take too much medication, it could be as dangerous as taking an illegal drug.
In English we have learnt about homophones and silent letters plus we began reading Tom’s Midnight Garden.
We really enjoyed learning about aliments in French: who can remember some of the sentences we wrote?
Have a fun-filled and safe weekend if you’re celebrating Bonfire Night.

Here is a Real Life Maths challenge. If we have at least 10 correct responses before Monday 7th November, I will build in some time to make the bread for real before Christmas.
Ingredients to make 1 loaf (serves 6)
- 15g fresh yeast
- 500g strong white bread flour
- 2 tsp salt
- 1tsp sugar
- 2 tbsp olive oil
We will need to make enough for all of the children plus an extra loaf for the staff to try as well. What are the total quantities of ingredients that we will need? How much is it going to cost?
