This week we have started reading Harry Potter. The children are very excited and have enjoyed the first two chapters. We have writeen some amazing character descriptions and looked at Harry's room under the stairs. Everyone is continuing to try hard in their English learning, improving their writing and coming up with some great questions in our lessons.

In our maths this week we have been exploring measure, looking at estimating and reminding ourselves of the column addition written method. The children used their number skills to read scales and even had a go at filling their own measuring cylinders to check their estimates. Have a look below.

In science we continued our topic on animals, investigating vertebrates and invertebrates. The children were very interested and produced some great work!

We also have looked at healthy eating in PSHE as part of our health and wellbeing topic. Our question this half term is Why should we eat well and look after our teeth?
