This week, we have been writing letters in the character of Mary Seacole. We have learnt the difference between a formal and an informal letter and have used our learning in History to write letters to her family but also to more formal people such as the lady from the War Office in London, who would not allow Mary to help Florence Nightingale in the Crimea. 

In Maths we have learnt all about how to divide numbers into equal groups. We used objects to divide up into equal groups and we also explored using number lines to jump in groups of 2 or 5 or 10 (some of us had a go at jumping in 3’s and 4’s too.) We also used the Bar Model to see if we got the same answers. 

In Science we investigated how to change the shape of an object by squashing, bending, twisting and stretching. We had to think about why some materials could change shape more easily than others. 

In RE we have been thinking about the Christian Bible story of creation. We tried to use empathy to think about a time when we have been tempted to do something that we knew we shouldn’t really do. 

Next week we are looking forward to making our tropical Fruit Smoothies and using it to write instructions. Many thanks for the donations we have had so far. 

Thank you to the two parents who have mentioned in the reading diaries that they read last week’s blog.
