Week beginning 10th September 2018

Our guest editors this week are Izzy and Daisy. Here's what they had to say about our week.

 

This week in our topic we have been doing lots of different things to do with nature. We have been exploring outside, drawing lots of natural mini beasts and finding out all about nature. We’ve also sketched our own types of birds such as, robins, seagulls and kingfishers.

 

In English we have been finding out more about hedgehogs. We have started to write a persuasive letter to Mr Philcox [head teacher] to see if we can build shelters to protect them. We are trying to help their numbers rise again from where they are now. We are also working on our cursive handwriting to make sure our letters are the best they can be.

 

This week in maths we have been learning how to round decimal numbers. Also, we have learnt how to add and subtract decimals too.

 

Thanks for reading about what our week was like. Bye!

 Izzy and Daisy!
