This week we finished our English topic about ‘Oranges in No Man’s Land’ and wrote our own stories from the perspective of Samar. We then began looking at narrative poems which tell a story. We read ‘St Thomas by the Water’ and used improvisation to perform the poem which we really enjoyed doing!  In Maths we have continued to learn about fractions. We were very good at multiplying fractions by whole numbers.

In Science we learnt about the life cycle of insects. We discovered that Butterflies also go through metamorphosis just like amphibians! We continued to use our map skills in Geography and cracked some codes using grid references on a map. In PE we continued to practise our throwing skills and have started to apply these in some invasion games. With Mrs Miller, we have been making Georgian houses out of card board boxes, which was really fun.

On Wednesday, Mr Blackburn and Mr Mearns took a group of us to Lancaster University to spend a day Coding. This was a great day were we created interactive canvases and moving robots. We presented these to the rest of the school on Friday morning. On Thursday afternoon we tried creating our own Georgian Architecture using old cereal boxes. Friday was Red Nose Day. We had lots of fun in Diamond class, designing our own red noses, researching songs for a competition and we even had a dance off! Lots of money was raised and we had lots of fun.
