In English, we have been learning anything and everything about The Gunpowder Plot! Children used iPads to collect some research and make point-form notes before doing some reading comprehension, a diary entry and a Bonfire Night recount. Be safe if any of you are planning on attending any extra Bonfire Night presentations over the weekend!
We have also started our new topic: Hot and Cold. Children have come up with and written down some things they would like to find answers to throughout this unit. These questions range from "How cold is ice?" to "How hot must it be for water to boil?". We started by looking at colour, specifically, primary colours and secondary colours. Children had fun trying to make some secondary colours by mixing primary colours. For +1 DOJO: What two primary colours are needed to make purple?
This week marked the first week of the more challenging spellings. I'm pleased to say that we have eight children who made their way onto the Top Spellers' Wall. Well done to: Matthew, Ella, Tom, Reuben, Sophie, Ethan E, Dominic and Ellie E! +2 HPs each!
