What an amazing first week back! I am pleased to say how impressed I am with class 8's mature and sensible start to the new year. Their behaviour has been brilliant and their enthusiasm is fantastic. Let's keep it up!

Literacy

We have read the first two chapters of 'The Spiderwick Chronicles' and it's beginning to get very intense! So far, we have been introduced to the main characters and discovered that not all is as it seems in their new house. What is lurking in the walls? Maybe this week we will find out?

            

Numeracy

In numeracy this week, we'll be looking at different methods for subtracting on a number line, either counting back or counting on to find the difference.

Topic

This week, we'll be continuing to develop map skills by comparing some local maps and finding the similarities and differences. We'll also look at the differnces between the British Isles, Great Britain and the UK and locate some of the major cities.

Happy New Year.
