Well done to Amelia and Aubrey for their DOJO certificates.
 
We have been rehearsing for our Christmas play this week. It is clear who has been working really hard to learn their lines but there is still a lot of work to be done. Please help by running through lines at home and also please bring costumes in by Tuesday 4th December (next week).
 
In literacy this week we have been watching the story of Mog and the Christmas Calamity which is a Christmas advert by Sainsbury's from a few years ago. We have been predicting what would happen next to Mog and then we have been deciding which pet of ours would cause chaos by various things going wrong ready to write our own story. We've been doing this by writing and also by creating cartoon strips.
 
In maths we have been looking at fractions finding 1/2, 1/4, 2/4, 3/4 and 1/3 of a pizza. We then moved on to finding fractions of different shapes and shaded them in to show the correct amount. We have also been showing off our knowledge 2D shapes and their properties and then on Friday we were looking at 3D shapes which gave us some great discussion points. 
 
In R.E we have been continuing our learning about the Christmas story and we've been writing it and drawing what happens. 
Due to not having swimming on Friday we took the opportunity to continue with our science and design boats that would be suitable to escape the Great Fire of London. Next week we will be making our boats and testing them to see if they can float for 30 seconds. PLEASE SEND IN RECYCLING FOR US TO MAKE THEM!
 
On Tuesday we went to the Fire Station with our houses, bakery and St Paul's Cathedral that we had made. We lined them all up and the firemen tried to set them alight - they had a very tricky job as the rain was so heavy! After a bit of perseverance and help from some firelighters being put in the houses they caught fire! We love seeing the fire spread despite the rain and to top it all off we all had a go on the fire hose too.
