Autumn Term

Roald Dahl Day 2018...


We have learned lots of new skills this half term and we are trying hard to apply them to all our writing in all subjects. We have learned all the rules of speech punctuation and when we need (and don't need) an apostrophe. We have been trying to write correctly in the past tense and looked at the different rules for writing verbs in the past tense; including irregular verbs like 'swam' and 'went'  

We have also had some fun with poetry! We studied some humorous narrative poems and even had a go at writing our own. 



We have been working hard at addition and subtraction and this week we have started working on multiplication and division. Some of us found this work tricky because we are not too sure of our times tables. Please practice x2, x5, x10, x3, x4 at home, which will make the work in class much easier. 


We learned more about the sacrament of baptism and even pretended to baptise our own "babies." We are trying to learn the order of what happens at Mass. There is a lot to remember but we are making  progress!   


Our topic has been 'Animals, including humans'. We've been learning about food groups and a balanced diet.  We have also learned about the human body and its skeleton.  Can you remember the 3 main functions of the skeleton?  Can you remember the scientific names for any bones?
