This week in Chestnut Class, we finished reading the intriguing story of 'Macbeth'. Also in Literacy, we continued with the Sentence Stacking which is where we plan sections of our Big Write (some of the vocabulary in SS4 was incredible).
In Maths, we worked on mutiplying and dividing decimals by 10, 100 and 1000 as well as mutlipying and dividing integers (whole numbers).
We have been learning about the human body in Science. This week, we looked at the role of the digestive system. Quick Fact - the tongue moves when you're eating!
We ended the week by dressing up as our favourite movie character for Pudsey Day (Children in Need) and we each donated £1 to the charity. Some of the costumes were amazing!

The pupils of Chestnut Class returned from the half-term break refreshed and ready to continue with their learning...
In Maths, the children studied coordinates, learning to translate and reflect various shapes.
In Literacy, the Class began studying the fascinating Shakespearean story of 'Macbeth', in preparation for their next Big Write. We are very much looking forward to seeing the live production of 'Macbeth' by the Young Shakespeare Company, in school, on Tuesday 19th November. (A gentle reminder - a voluntary contribution of £2 per child is respectfully requested to help fund this exciting, educational event.)
This week, in Chestnut Class, we have been learning about many things! We explored Crime and Punishment in the Stuart period, which was fascinating. In Maths, we consolidated our learning of fractions by undertaking a test that we then marked ourselves. In Literacy, we concentrated on writing up the first of our Big Writes in Chestnut Class. We ended the week by looking at the Hindu Festival of Diwali and designed our own colourful, vibrant rangolis. It has been another very busy week and we are all looking forward to half-term!

At the beginning of this week in Chestnut Class, we learned to add and subtract fractions. Later in the week, we started to multiply and divide fractions. We have certainly been testing our times-tables knowledge!
In Literacy, we worked hard preparing for our exciting Big Write newspaper articles based on story of 'The Three Little Pigs'.
In Science, we undertook research on the circulatory system in preparation for our double-spread poster work to be completed next week.
Our P.S.H.E. topic was entitled "Penny for your Thoughts" and we discussed negative feelings and how to turn them into positives.

This week in Chestnut Class, the children were introduced to comparing fractions in Maths. They were then able to add and subtract fractions, which forms part of their homework issued today. In Literacy, the children continued with their Newspaper Reports on Goldilocks in preparation for the Big Writes next week. Based on their work today, we are expecting some amazing and detailed reports! The Class worked on the topic of Crime and Punishment, focusing on the Tudor and Medieval periods. Christmas came early this week as the children began designing their colourful Christmas cards. Have a wonderful weekend!
