On Monday Jo came in to introduce Bike-it Week. Three people dressed up and we had to decide who was the brightest person, so they would be seen in the dark evenings.
We have also been busy making reindeer and peppermint creams for the PTA Christmas Fair on Friday…
Friday – Wear something BRIGHT Day
Daniel won our class prize for being the brightest.
We had to vote on our winner because Mrs C thought we all looked fantastic!
Thank you very much to Mrs Redpath who helped us wrap our reindeer and peppermint creams. They sold like hot cakes…
We mustn’t forget our entries for the Make or Bake a Christmas Tree Competition….
Well done Adam- first prize!
Ready for our Open Day tomorrow we have completed our Poetry, Art and Science displays and thought it would be nice to share our work with you…
It is road safety week next week and beside this we will be baking in class- preparing gingerbread reindeer to sell on our table at the PTA Christmas fair.
Please could I ask everyone go on a cone hunt over the weekend as we will be using them on Monday 30th November during a Christmas Experience (every child needs one).
Finally a few reminders:
Cake break tomorrow
Wear something bright day next Friday (PTA Christmas Fair)
Homework this week is to keep learning those songs and lines and think about costumes. Extension activities could include more Mathletics, reading for the Reading Awards – Non-Fiction (research for your Non-Chronological report) and spelling activities.
Have a lovely weekend.
Please remember that it is our cake break on Friday – 20th November!
A reminder has been sent out via email or slip.
We have all been using the column method to subtract 3 and 4 digit numbers. Some of us started with decomposition – splitting the numbers into thousands, hundreds, tens and ones. We know how to ‘borrow’ by taking a ten, hundred or thousand….
We also used numbers with 2 decimal places – to answer money and measure problems.
We had to remember to record all the numbers correctly so that the value of the digits and the decimal point stayed correct.
