Week ending 12th January 2018

What a busy week we have had in Fistral class this week. Well done to Will G and Morgan who were awarded Dojo certificates this week. 
In Literacy, we have been learning our new story 'How to hide a Lion at School'. We have drawn story maps, decided where we would hide a Lion at our school (we had some very interesting suggestions!) and we identified coordinating words in the text.
In Maths, we  have been focusing on place value and using our knowledge to partition numbers in different ways, solve problems and cracking place value codes. 
We have begun our Science work learning about animals and their young and enjoyed matching pictures of them to show our understanding.   
Our week finished with a visit from the Swamp circus. Mr B the clown put on a fantastic show which had us all ooohing and aaahing! We then had an hours workshop where we learnt a huge range of different circus tricks. Mr B told us that this year is the 250th year of the circus in Great Britain, we couldn't believe it had been going on for so long. 
Homework this week was Quickfire 30 and spellings.  Next week's homework will consist of reading comprehension and spellings. 
Curriculum newsletters have been sent home this week, however if you have missed it, you can click on the link and download it from there.
