This week we have come to the end of our first PowerMaths unit. We are loving PowerMaths as it is a fun way of learning — it's hands-on, it's collaborative and it makes us think outside the box. It's actually a great way to develop reasoning and deepen understanding because it focuses on getting children to explain how and why something is done. Throughout this first topic, we have successfully learnt: how to multiply numbers up to 4 digits by a one- or two-digit number; how to multiply and divide numbers mentally (drawing upon known facts) and how to divide numbers with up to 4 digits by a one-digit number.

In English this week, we carried on with the persuasive writing we started last week. We used all the key features we learnt — like persuasive openers, superlative and imperative verbs — to write a persuasive piece about an important invention from the Victorian era; we each picked our own invention to write about based on which one we felt was most important. Did you know that during the Victorian era cameras, typewriters, motorcars and jelly babies were invented (along with much more of course)? Hopefully, we've been persuasive enough to persuade Queen Victoria to add our chosen invention to the Great Exhibition at Crystal Palace. Finally, during our English lessons, we have been looking at the rules of adding the 'ible' and 'able' to help us understand 'ibly' and 'ably'.

Our morning routine had a little change this week because on Wednesday, instead of Maths and English, you had your P.E lesson and Music lesson. Mrs Jenkins taught you P.E and Miss Holland taught you music. Both Mrs Jenkins and Miss Holland said you were beautifully behaviour and that you worked really hard. Good work team!

In our afternoons this week, we have been busy with history, R.E, Art and Computing. On Monday, we learnt about workhouses and compared the life of a Victorian workhouse child to what our lives our like today. Believe me when I say, times back then were very different and the idea of having to live in a workhouse was not an appealing one for us.
On Tuesday, we learnt about Morse Code and had a go at using Morse Code to send messages to each other.

On Wednesday afternoon our focus was Interfaith Week. We learnt about the different faiths and then took closer look at Judaism, Islam and Christianity. We learnt about how they have many similarities, including in the symbolism they use. These similarities help us build bridges and help unit us. After that, we designed our own piece of art work which we then created on Thursday. Each of you designed your piece, chose the mediums you wanted to use and created your work independently. The artwork that you all created was truly incredible.

Finally, on Friday, we logged onto to Interland as part of Internet Safety Week. We learnt how to stay safe online. We got to explore different kingdoms and learn many important things. The kingdoms we visited were: 'Think Before You Share', 'Securing Secrets', 'Respect Each Other' and 'Check It's For Real'.

Have a great weekend,
