This week has been slightly different to our normal week. We've had Remembrance Day, Children in Need and PC Nick has been into visit us because it's been 'Keeping Safe Week' and 'Anti-Bullying Week'. That's as well as doing lots of learning too.

For Ant-Bullying Week, we discussed the importance of being different, and we made a list of all the things that make us different. We realised that it's good to be different because if the world was filled with people that were identical to us, it would be very boring. Next, we read a story called 'King and King'. We discussed how the story ended different to our expectations — the prince married a prince. This led onto us talking about how everybody loves someone different, and that it doesn't matter who you love. You were so grown up with your conversations and ideas; I have to say that I am really impressed with you all. Here is a snap shot of some of your thoughts:
'It doesn't matter who you love, as long as you are happy'
'I think people should be respected for who they want to be, and you can not bully people for who they want to be.'
'I think it's ok to be different in every way.'

Our maths topic this week was statistics. We have been focusing on line graphs in particular; we have been trying to understand them and draw them. The drawing part was the easiest as you have to just follow a set of simple logical steps. The questions however were a little trickier. Trying to fathom out what the question is actually asking is the hardest part. We doubled our thinking power by working together, and this helped us overcome the bamboozling questions.

In English we have been doing some exciting stuff! We have learnt a whole story off-by heart! As the week progressed, we kept learning little bits and by the end of the week were able to perform it. During each lesson, we also unpicked the story which we learnt. We dived into the word choices used, and we did lots of thesaurus and dictionary work to find synonyms which we will be able to use in our own writing. Finally, our SPaG focus has been co-ordinating conjunctions We learnt a great mnemonic to remember co-ordinating conjunctions — FANBOYS.

During our afternoons, we have been learning about the phases of the moon, locating key places within Greece, recapping the meaning of the beatitudes and creating our own pictures that embody them, designing the cushions we're going to be making, playing Simon Says in French and going bonkers on TTRockstars.

It's been a great week, thank you for all your hard work.

Have a great weekend,

Miss P
