Happy half term!

Well where did that one go? Despite rotten viruses and wet weather Lime class have managed to keep smiling and working hard.  We concluded our history topic all about the ancient Indus valley civilization by exploring 4 different theories about it’s decline. Working as historians, we learnt about the supporting evidence by sorting facts and then chose the one which we thought was the most likely to be true.

Maths has been all about using our multiplication facts to solve scaling and combination problems. Times tables can be so useful so get practising with TT rockstars……

In English we read, retold and rewrote a traditional African story called ‘the iguana who was always right’. We enjoyed the story as the animal characters made us laugh! Through our rewrite, we were able to try to apply what we knew about punctuating dialogue.

In Science we learnt about the brilliant mind of Leonardo Da Vinci who was a scientist, inventor, artist and writer.  We were also able to tie this in with our RE as year three talked about the significance of the story of the last supper in christianity, and used Da Vinci’s famous painting to illustrate the story.

Our computing lesson this week was fun as we learnt how to code with scratch to create a TRex game!

It was so lovely to see the children inviting their parents in to see their Haiku poems and self portraits on display – they are rightfully very proud of their work.

A big thankyou to the children who made a great effort in their sponsored skip – some great scores were racked up on Wednesday.

Finally, good luck and best wishes to Keira and her family as they set off on their new adventure – keep in touch!
