Well what a busy week it has been and may I start by saying how proud I am of you all, especially with how polite and well-mannered you were when our special visitor came this week (though I knew you would be!) but also with how well you tackled sewing on Thursday. For most of you, it was the first time you had ever sewn and my goodness you were all amazing! I just had to give the whole class the Growth Mindset award this week because of it!
Speaking of sewing, we are making hand puppets sell at the Christmas Fayre and I sent home a little homework this week to do some 'market research' to investigate which Christmas character would be the most popular to sell as a hand puppet. This is due on Monday so we can make some decisions about what to make for you, so please have it on Monday ready. The secret word is cautiously.
We have finished our recounts now in English and moved onto instructions - another non-fiction text which is meant to inform the reader. We have already noticed they have some similar features to recounts, like time conjunctions, and are going to be delving deeper into more features next week.
In Maths, we have been working out how to find 10 more, 10 less and multiples of 10 more or less to (like 20, 30, 40 etc). We noticed that on a hundred square these were directly above and below the number and that it is only the tens column that changes as we are adding no ones!
Tomorrow is a busy week, making our puppets, continuing with our Christmas play rehearsals and then Decoration Day on Friday! Keep your eyes peeled for a sign up sheet next week if you would like to help on Friday.
Enjoy your weekend and we'll see you on Monday!
