During our final week this term we have been making Easter egg cards for our family, using a split pin to open the egg.
In Maths we have been finding solutions for sums, either mentally or using a written method. We are now thinking more carefully which method we use. We also found different combinations when colouring in the shell, spots and ribbons different colours.
In English we have been writing our own warning stories based on the railway children.
We hope everyone has a HAPPY EASTER.
Week beginning 16th March 2015
This week we went on our train trip from Bristol Temple Mead to Avonmouth. We had an activity to look out of the carriage window and find something which began with every letter of the alphabet, we found 'x' very difficult. We walked to the train station, and we were very lucky because someone who works for First Great Western came with us and told us lots of things along the way. Also the man using the train tannoy system helped us find 'z'.
Today was the solar eclipse. It was the first eclipse since we were born! We had to wear special glasses so we didn't damage our eyes, which made everything dark so we could only see the outline of things very close to us. Once on the playground we used the glassess to look at the eclipse.

During assembly we guessed who Ms Payne was...she was Carrie from Carries War. During the day we made our own book marks and wrote a character description about the character we came as.
