Bonjour! Comment ҁa va? En Franҁais cette semaine nous avons appris à commander de la nourriture au restaurant.


Hello! How are you? In French this week, we have been learning about how to order food in a restaurant. 


We have been role playing being in a cafe or restaurant and have been improving our pronunciation.


In maths this week, we have started our new topic on addition and subtraction, focusing on adding and subtracting two 4-digit numbers. We are using our knowledge of place value to support us. 

Friday 24th September 2021


This week we have been getting into role as the main character from our class text, Danny Chung Does Not Do Maths. Danny is an 11 year old boy who was promised an amazing surprise, only to find out that his surprise was sharing a bunk bed with his Chinese grandmother, who he has never met! We got in role as Danny and did some hot seating, asking each other questions about how he could have been feeling at different points in the text. We then put ourselves into Danny's shoes by writing a diary entry.


We have also finished our place value topic this week. We have become much more confident in comparing and ordering numbers up to 100,000 and have learned new skills like rounding to the nearest 100,000 and comparing and ordering numbers to 1,000,000.


In R.E this week, we have been looking at the question: Does God forgive? In small groups, children acted out different scenarios.

Please welcome our Reading Ambassadors for this week.
