Well done to Ruby and Ellie for their DOJO certificates this week! 
 
We've been working incredibly hard this week learning about newspaper writing. We've been planning and writing a newspaper report about Supertato and we have planned a report linked to our History about Grace Darling ready to write on Monday. The children have loved learning about Grace Darling this half term. We have been coming up with catchy headlines and using all of the key facts we have learnt about Grace Darling.
 
At the beginning of the week we were talking about comic book Superheroes again and the children started to draw their own comic strip. On Monday they'll be using the ipads to create comic strips. 
The children did a fabulous job of coding on the ipads this week giving a robot instructions to move the robot and turn on lights. There are some great coding opportunities on https://hourofcode.com/uk/learn - Moana, Frozen and Star Wars are good starting points.
 
In Maths we have been learning about fractions including finding half, quarter and a third of a shape. The children have been very confident working their way through these fractions. 
 
Forest School came to a finish this week, the children have really enjoyed being out this half term with Mrs Small. I shall ask her for some photos to put up of their time at Forest School. 
Everyone has been gaining confidence swimming over this half term, everyone should be very proud of themselves.
 
We are very much looking forward to the Superhero training day on Wednesday. Please send children in their superhero outfits. We have lots of great activities planned for your mini superheroes! Photos will follow next week!
