In music we have been learning our carols for the carol concert on Thursday 14th December. My favourite song is Joy to the World which Year 3 and 4 will be singing. (Olivia) We are going to practice sooooo much that we are going to start to annoy you. (Robert)

In DT we have been back stitching our teddies and next week we are going to be turning them inside out, stuffing them, sewing the hole up and then decorating them. We are enjoying DT. (Lauren)

In English we have been editing our letters that we wrote to our authors. Today we rewrote our letters and some of us only got half way through. Next week we will writing the final letter and sending them off. We are all very excited to see if we get a reply. (Sydney)

In maths we mostly have been dividing but we still did some problem solving today. We had a square with four different equations in it and we had to put the numbers 1 to 8 into the boxes. We could only use each number once. Here is the problem https://nrich.maths.org/2005 (George M)

There are lots of other problems on nrich.maths.org which we can have a go at 🙂

We hope you have a lovely weekend,

In English we have been planning our own non fiction information text for our big write about the Stone Age. Today we wrote our big write and all of us had sheets with boxes on and you had to write your subtitles and then write your non fiction information text. Afterwards you could draw pictures if you wanted to. (Martha)

In maths we have started to learn about subtraction and to steel a digit from another number so we you can take away the first number. (Anne)

In science we have been learning about fossils. The fossil types are called body fossils, trace fossils, mold fossils and resin fossils. Also we’ve been learning about how amber is formed. First a fly gets stuck into tree sap and it hardens up. It turns into amber. (Ethan)

In DT (design and technology) we’ve been planning how to make a teddy bear. So we drew what we wanted it to look like and in the next couple of weeks we are going to start making it. (Elliott)

P.S Miss Wetzel would like help with the sewing please 🙂

In PE we did gym and we made routines and showed them to Mr B’s class, then they showed theirs to our class. (Noah)
