Good afternoon parents (and children!) of Cherry Class! Only two weeks remain from this first term. It does seem a lot longer than 5 weeks that we have been in school together, but certainly not in any 'bad' way!
Moving away from Kensuke's Kingdom in Literacy, we planned and wrote a story based solely on the setting provided (that of a beach scene). The children had the chance to describe two of their own characters and to plot a story from start to end.
In Numeracy, Year 5/6 completed their final week linked to addition and subtraction and have spent the last two days completing 1, 2 and multi-step word problems (very well I should hasten to add!) Year 6 have progressed onto long and short multiplication.
In RE, the class looked at how some Muslims journey to Mecca in Saudi Arabia on a pilgrimage and wrote a first person account.
In Geography, we had a enjoyable discussion about 'Fair Trade' and how it relates to the banana industry in St Lucia in the West Indies - we found out some incredible things, including how millions of Fair Trade bananas are eaten in Britain every year, many from this island!
Have a lovely weekend everyone, take care
Mr Ramsden and Mrs Morris
