Blog January 2017

This week we have been very busy learning about families of words and root words in literacy.
We have been 'illuminating' letters like the Monks from the later part of the Anglo-Saxon period.
In PE we have been doing gymnastics with Mr Kent, learning about how to sequence movement, balance and shapes.
This week we have been learning to use speech marks in our writing. We have learnt the following saying to help us: Sixty-six, Capital Letter, Choice of 4, Ninety-nine! (The choice of 4: commas, full stops, exclamation marks and question marks)
In maths, we have been making 3D shapes by cutting and folding nets. Some children thought that they would challenge themselves with various polyhedrons!
