Spring 2- Week 2   A highlight of our week was definitely World Book day on Friday. We had an Alice in Wonderland theme and even had a Mad Hatter's tea party. Thank you to all of the children and parents who contributed to this; you definitely mad the day memorable! See the pictures below to see how we decorated the corridor, created poems based on the "Jabberwocky", created Mad Hatter Hats, used Alice in Numblerland and, of course, ate lots of cake whilst playing chess! In English this week, we have been working in teams to write a recount of our character August's first day at school. We have found out that Auggie suffers from Treacher Collins syndrome, and has never been to real school in his whole life. This part of the book was quite emotional and we enjoyed meeting new characters such as Jack, Julian and Charlotte. The written pieces were fantastic and it was great to see so many children working together to improve their work. In Maths, we started to look at how to find equivalences between fractions, decimals and percentages using a hundred square. This is an excellent tool to use- please ask your children to show you! In year 5, we should know the equivalent FDPs of 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and 1/3. Children need to practise these as they are often questions within SATs papers. We can't forget that it was also Shrove Tuesday last week. Best wishes to our families who are observing lent. We know that Mrs Pecheur has given up chocolate- good luck!
