Rocks and Papers

What a busy start to the term!

In Maths, we have picked up where we left off and continued with our work on exchanging using the column method. Fortunately, we've remembered last term's work and will now be started to apply this method for adding and subtracting to money problems and tricky word problems.

In English, we have started our unit on newspapers. We began by taking a close look at different issues of First News, our favourite newspaper for children. We found out that there was much more to a newspaper than just articles... fascinating photographs, wordsearches, quizes, comic strips, gaming and sports sections... the list went on!

We're very excited because we are now going to be writing our very own newspaper... The Bluecoat News! 

In Creative Curriculum, we've started learning about rocks. In order to know how natural disasters occur, we need to learn a little bit more about what our Earth is made of. We began by examining different types of rocks using magnifying glasses and were amazed to discover that there's more to them than we thought.



We'll now be going on our very own rock hunt to see what we can find around school!
