I think I was successful because I sorted information under headings (Jaiden). I researched a sheep from a Mediterranean climate. I think I was successful because I could read for information and wrote down relevant facts (Catherine).
This week in Numeracy we have been learning to multiply. Some groups have been learning to multiply with 2s, 10s and 5s. Some people have even been multiplying with a two digit number. I think I need more practise, because I am still using my fingers and skip counting, but I am getting more confident (Abbaigh). I think I was successful at using my 6 times table and multiplying with decade numbers (Reggie). I think I was successful learning my 4 times table as I can do this in my head and I need some more practise with my 6 (James F).
This week in Health and Wellbeing we had our very last lesson learning about the cogs. We have been recapping on what we have learned about all 7 cogs and created a poster with lots of emotion works language.

Thanks for reading.
We have has lots of fun.

Pay for items with the exact amount and we have started to learn about working out change. I think I was successful because I can identify my coins and I was working out change within a £1 (Nikola). I think I need more practise at giving change (Kacey). I think I need more practise in working out change within a £1 (Catherine).

I have been listening really well to our class novel called ‘The Wild Robot’ and have improved my listening skills (Sophia).
Numeracy and Maths
In numeracy this week I practised and got better at my doubles from 10-20 through number talks (Tia). I used the jump back strategy when I was subtracting 2-digit numbers (Cole). I’ve enjoyed the daily 10 maths challenge (Archie). From Monday next week we are looking forward to using these each day to improve our mental maths strategies and skills.
Health and Wellbeing

We are looking forward to the weekend and hope you have a good one too!
Miss Darcy and P.4M
This week in P4S we have had a fun filled week.
In IDL we have had a fun week learning all about water. We used our topic books to read for information and answer questions on water. On Wednesday we investigated the changing states of water and sorted items into solid. liquid and gases. We then took part in an experiment with ice. We found out that ice melts quicker in higher temperatures (Daniel). The ice went from a solid to a liquid (Reggie). On Thursday we learned about the water cycle (James F). We learned new vocabulary, evaporation, condensation and precipitation (Reggie). I learned that evaporation is when the sun shines on a puddle and the heat makes the water rise and turns in to a gas (Reggie). I learned when condensation happens it is when water vapor mixes with the cold air and turns in to a liquid (Daniel). At the end of the lesson we made our own water cycles in a bag, this was fun (James F).
This week in Literacy we learned how to write a weather report (Kacey). We had two parts in our report, a weather report and a news report. On Tuesday we videoed our reports and learned to use different tones for expression. We needed more practise to try to stop ourselves from laughing (Ayleigh). I think I was successful because I managed to read some parts with expression (Cerys). It was really fun but we needed to work a little faster to get it recorded (Lucie).
In Maths this week we have been learning to build and use a calendar (Abbaigh). To be successful we needed to be able to order the months and days of the week (Catherine). We also needed to be able to write the short date and the long date (Nadia). We also learned how many days are in each month, we used a rhyme to help us (Millie). I think I was successful because I can write the short date and long date (Ellie). I think I was successful because I can order the months of the year and the days of the week (Kyle).
