What a busy few weeks at school we have had. The children have all settled into their new classes and have been getting to know their new teachers. We would like to thank everyone who attended our 'Meet the Teacher' session, it was lovely to see you all.

In our Maths lessons, we have been learning to add and subtract 2 and 3 digit numbers, using different methods. This has been quite tricky, and we have even looked at how we can use these methods to solve mathematical problems. Even though it has been a tricky topic, we have had lots of fun!

In our Literacy lessons, we have been learning about blogging, powerpoints and magazine articles. We have been writing about our own lives and looking at different ways of presenting this information to an audience. We even had a visit from Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf! Ask your children why they came to visit us! Next week, we will begin to write our very own autobiography, including special moments in the children's lives.

In our Science lessons, we have been looking at light and shadow. It is a very interesting topic and the children have experienced lots of hand on, practical science lessons. We will continue with this topic up until half term.

As you know, in History, we are learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. There have been lots of excitement around these lessons and the children have all been given a project to complete at home! Don't forget if you need us to print anything or help in anyway, just let us know.

We have also booked a trip to Manchester History Museum in December. We will be exploring the Egyptian worlds and getting our hands on some artefacts. We are hoping that this will provide the children with a valuable insight into Egyptian life and will compliment learning taking place in the classroom. A letter will be sent home next week with details of the trip.

This week, we have had the opportunity to work with a poet and the children LOVED it! The children took part in a poetry workshop and wrote and presented their very own Kenning Poem. DON'T FORGET this Friday (14th October), is Roald Dahl Dress up Day. We cant wait to see the children's costumes!
