Pe day

Our PE day is Monday.  Please could we ask that any long hair is tied back and no jewellery is worn on this day. 



This half term...

Our writing has been based on the story 'My Strong Mind' which has provided the opportunity to write instructions about how to be resilient when faced with challenges.  We are currently reading 'Blue John' by Berlie Doherty and will be moving on to 'Fortunately the Milk' by Neil Gaiman. 




 In maths, our focus is multiplication and division and we are continuing to learn our times tables and use these to solve problems.  We have been studying light in science and in history, we are learning about the ancient civilisations of ancient Sumer, the Indus Valley and the Shang dynasty in China.  Mrs Hulme comes in on a Thursday morning and teaches us how to look after the environment.


We are reading



 A child made from light and from darkness... The Queen of Darkness lives in the shadow of the mountain Mam Tor with her child, Blue John.  Blue John is forbidden to leave his mother's side, but when a singing, dancing girl comes to the caves, Blue John must make a choice between darkness and light.
