This week we used our chopping skills to make quesadillas! We will be making these for our Mexican cafe at the end of this half term to share with our families. This week we made the basic recipe (and practised flipping them over in the frying pan!) and tried out some different mixtures. After tasting these different mixtures, we are now ready to plan our own designs.
We also enjoyed filtering water in science using charcoal, cotton wool and sand.
Our first letters to our german penpals are also ready to send - what a busy week!

Another half term is complete and this has seen us completing work related to our Frozen Kingdom topic. We were excited to finish our printing work inspired by the art of Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak. It is very difficult to print with multiple colours but our completed pieces can be seen below and are also on display in the school.

We've completed our 'Have a Go' week and the children have all done extremely well! I was particularly impressed with the hard-working attitude that all children showed throughout the week. Results will be shared at parents evening next week.
We've been looking at pie charts this week and this led to some very challenging work on Friday attempting to draw our own! We're also coming to the end of our topic on Frozen Kingdom and have been considering what the Arctic might be like in 2050. Hopefully the children will have lots of ideas about how they can help battle against climate change.

Apologies for the lack of an update and homework last week but I was unwell. It has been lovely to get back to teaching the children this week. In Maths, we've been tackling angles and the children have really improved their protractor skills and can now draw shapes accurately. In English, we're using the book Survivors to motivate us and we've focused on using detailed sentences. Our topic this half term is 'Frozen Kingdom' and we've been learning about the Arctic and Antarctica.
