Congratulations to our award winners this week for their hard work during lessons, good listening and perseverance.
We have had a great week this week, learning more about our Tin Mining topic; rounding numbers in Maths and how particles change with the states of matter in science. As part of our topic, Geevor Tin Mine came to school with lots of tin mining equipment and clothes for us to look at, try on and feel. Some of the clothes were far too big, and others were a little tricky to work out how we should wear them - we found out in the end. 
 
As well as the workshop with Geevor Tin Mine, we visited the mine, where we had a look around the mine above ground, looking at the Winding House, and the cage (lift) that the miners used to go up and down into the mine. We also got to go underground and walk through some of the old mining tunnels which were dark and small. The children had chance to do some panning for jewels to take home, some of which looked like little bits of gold!
 
Alongside all of this we have started to write our own balanced argument about whether Mrs Taylor should allow a tin mine to be built in our school field or not. We will finish writing this next week. In Maths this week we went outside to estimate and measure different lengths such as the width of the school field and the circumference of a tree trunk. 
 
Next week our words of the week will be: build, busy, business, guide and guard. We will focus on spelling these words and using them in our writing. 
We will also be focusing on our 4x table in Maths.
Looking forward to reading your thoughts about your balanced argument next week!
