Mrs Wolfe - 14 Feb 2019

Last Friday our dale captains raised an incredible £59.00 selling cakes at the end of the day and are now busy buying some exciting activities for the quiet playground – watch this space!

Our 500 Words stories are going well, plans have been made and our first drafts are underway.  The children are very excited about their stories and there is a real writing buzz in class.  This week to improve we our compositions we have been exploring quality texts, using the wildlife area to explore the senses and using SPAMO to collect examples of figurative language. Look out for more information regarding the competition and an e-mail for you to give permission for your child to enter this year’s competition.

In maths we have been exploring the relationship between fractions and decimals.
We have begun a new topic in science and are now investigating evolution and inheritance.  This week we have explored inherited characteristics and acquired characteristics, linking to our understanding of growth mindset. 

As always, internet safety is a priority in cedar and following ‘Time to Talk’ day last week we have followed this with a ‘Healthy Bodies and Healthy Minds’ theme, thinking about the importance of staying safe and looking after ourselves whilst using technology.

Our planning for the KS2 Hindu Mandir temple is going well and the children are now in the process of booking their RE trip.

This afternoon Erin & Hattie delivered a thought-provoking class worship session, exploring the theme of the good shepherd and the wonder…’I wonder if I can be a good shepherd?’

A quick reminder regarding the Y5/6 rugby tournament next Monday, those children not attending will work with Mr Donaldson that afternoon.

Our school council have been busy thinking of ideas to support our chosen charities and after half term week will begin a KS2 tuck shop.  All profits made will go to our Aquabox charity. The plan is to sell small, healthy snacks.  Children can bring a 20p coin to school on tuck shop day to spend on one item each week.  Watch this space!
