Friday 13th October

This week in Literacy, we continued to read 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe'.  The children have written some lovely diary entries from Edmund's perspective (from when he first went into Narnia and met the White Witch).  In Maths, we have been revising the names and properties of the 4 types of triangle (isosceles, scalene, equilateral and right-angled) and the 6 regular quadrilaterals (trapezium, rectangle, square, parallelogram, rhombus and kite).  We also practised calculating missing angles in triangles, irregular quadrilaterals and parallelograms.  In Science, we carried out our breathing rate investigations (scroll down to see photos).   In RE this week, for our final lesson on this topic, we wrote about Mother Teresa and how she showed love and care to those less fortunate throughout her life.  Adam came into school this afternoon to talk to us about Healthy Living - he explained the 'Eatwell Guide' and we took part in different exercises (scroll down to see photos).
