Happy Half Term. Have fun with friends and families. See you all safely back to school on Monday 3rd June 2019.

April 2019

To begin April we walked to the Post Office and posted our letters to the Queen and The Duchess of Cornwall - Camilla to tell them all about Hurling and ask some questions. We are eagerly awaiting their replies and have predicted it may take 2 or 3 months! We are trying very hard to  be patient.
 
Our topic this half term is A twist in the tale where we are focusing on the story of The Three Little Pigs. We are re-writing our own version in  literacy changing our characters and in ICT we are creating a news podcast about the events of the story. In science and DT we are looking at different materials and designing new houses for the Pigs that would help protect them from the wolf! 
 
We are working very hard to prepare for our SATs which will be taking place throughout May. We have been revising place value in maths working on our addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. In the afternoons we have been doing our SPAG focus making sure that we know the different sentence types including an exclamation, command, statement and a question. Our knowledge is continuously developing.
 
At the end of this month to finish our topic and help with our next term's topic we are looking forward to visiting Pendennis Castle for which we have gained funding for our travel from The Cornish Heritage. We look forward to sharing our photos and writing about our trip with you next month!
