In maths, we have been learning how to order decimals to the nearest whole, tenth and hundredth. Today, we had a tricky but fun challenge, Spiraling Decimals! We worked in partners to place decimals on the spirals, and our aim was to get three in a row, the fun bit was trying to block each other. In addition, we have been learning how to sequence decimals, and this has improved our understanding…..roll on percentages!
Last week, in the fun Friday assembly, we had musical musicians who are taught by Mrs Todd to perform. Their pieces included La Morisque, which was very impressive. These enchanting tunes were music to our ears. Ms Willett and I helped to organise this special event, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I also had the opportunity to perform myself. The performances included different instruments, such as, the bassoon, fife, flute and the recorder. During the performance the ordinance looked stunned! This assembly was definitely one to remember.

This term in P.E, we enjoyed Olympic activities. We began by learning the best techniques for running, and after that, we worked on our long jump skills. These included, bending our knees, and leaping forward effectively. In addition to the Olympics, we have continued to play handball. We have enjoyed three weeks of this unique new sport, so we are now pros. In the first week, we learnt the rules, and different passing techniques, these included; bounce pass, chest pass, and overhead pass. In the second week, we practiced shooting and saving. On the final week we enjoyed a mini tournament, where we all played each other once. As well as the Olympics and handball, we have been playing football rounders. In our Red Badge Treat (1st April) we are looking forward to a big game of football rounders on the field.

This week in English, we have stared a new topic, the genre is poetry, and we are reading, ‘Cloud Busting’ by Malorie Blackman. An important feature of this book will intrigue you. You may just think it is an ordinary old poetry book, but don’t judge a book by it’s cover. It is a moving story, of an extraordinary friendship between two key characters. The book uses different poetic devices, that will strike different emotions, as their friendship goes through some ups and downs. I’m not going to tell you any more, as I don’t want to spoil the story for you.
