This week we have been doing a lot of fractions, decimals, and percentages, and how to convert them. We were solving logic problems.

We have been working hard on our topic which, right now, is Scotland and food. Or scottish food. We’ve learned what some traditional scottish foods are, and where they come from. We were given maps of Scotland and we labeled dots of where the food came from, and what food it was. Also for topic we were writing restaurant reviews, and designing our own logos.

For writing this week, we have written a face the fear story, where our character has a fear, and faces it by the end of the story. 

Halloween Fun!

Welcome back everyone!! It is great to have everyone back from holidays and ready for a new term.

We had a great day today. Well done everyone for your super costumes. We decorated masks, made crispy cakes, wrapped up staff with toilet roll to make mummies, read each other the spooky stories we had written during the week and designed our own pumpkins.

A huge thank you also to the parents who made the outside of the school and the hall look very spooky!!!

Hello Yellow!

I am so proud of our leadership team for organising such a great event today. They planned it all and made it fun for everyone – even in the pouring rain!!

We raised the fantastic sum of £56.45 for the charity Young Minds.

I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday and a well deserved break. Thank you all for working so hard and making this such a good term.

Harry Potter day

As a reward for working SO hard this term, Mrs Fraser planned a Harry Potter activity day for us today (and sneaked some learning in there too!). We made catapaults to fly golden snitches, learned a spell to make a penny disappear, made our own wands, examined some troll bogeys and created our own very cute magical creatures! It was a great day.
