Last week, you might of seen the blog about us designing gadgets. We have all had fun creating innocent looking gadgets to help Alex Rider on his spy mission. The children have created many ideas for their gadgets. e.g a backpack which is a jet pack, a plane bug, and lots more. We also did drama acting out erosion, deposition and transportation. These are some pictures of the children acting.
One child in our class won a dancing competition. Here is a picture of her and her trophy.
We have also made top trump cards.
Thanks for reading,

Oops! - I wanted to give out some new spellings today and to see if you'sd all learnt the spellings I gave you last week. That'll have to wait until Monday now. However, I'll put them on below and if you're reading this you'll have a head start!
And if those spellings are a bit too tricky...
Have a great weekend. Looking forward to seeing you all next week.
It's been a busy week in 5R. We have been doing lots of tests throughout the week. We have had maths tests, English tests and S.P.A.G tests (spelling punctuation and grammar). We have also been learning about coasts in our spare time. Next week, we will be making some spy gadgets for Alex Rider. The children are excited to make the gadgets! In P.E we are learning to keep close control and dribbling in football. The current score of girls and boys - changing for P.E - is 4 - 0 to the girls. In guided reading we are doing comprehensions.

Thanks to everyone who came to "Meet the Teacher" this week. It was good to get a chance to introduce myself and talk about the things we will be doing this year. Swimming update - We will be going swimming in the Easter Term not after half-term. This should ensure that each class get the opportunity to make more progress.
Thanks for remembering PE kits on Tuesday - and hopefully every Tuesday from now on.
I was really impressed with the children's writing this week - Application to become a spy - formal letter to the head of MI6. The children used all the ideas I shared in the lesson and have already started to develop the structure of their sentences.
We've being working on place value and reading numbers up to 10,000,000. See if your child can read a 7 or 8 digit number!
We even managed to fit in a science experiment to test the absorbency of different grades of paper towel. We took some time out to study seashells up close too and draw them. (see above)
Have a great weekend.
