Hi everyone, It's great to try and do a little bit of reading each day. Here's a list of 7 websites where you can find free books to read online. You might find a new favourite!

Stairwall project- Arts workshop
Earlier this term went on a trip to the Cambois Institute. We had so much fun! We completed three different activities (Art, Dance and Music) with professionals! This was an experience that the children have never had before and they embraced the different cultures with the professionals originating from different parts of the world! A truly magnificent experience that the children loved. 
Surfing
Last term we spent Friday afternoons surfing on the sea at South Shields. It was amazing. We developed incredible resilience, battling the weather to not only get on our surf boards, but to confidently move on them too. The team work on show was outstanding!
Literacy
This half term we have been looking at persuasive adverts. We have analysed the linguistic features in different adverts and begun to plan our own. We decided to base them on our class novel - Harry Potter. Here are some pictures of the broomsticks we have designed ready to market. Keep your eyes peeled for our adverts!
 
Maths
We have completed place value , four operations and statistics so far in Maths. We use lots of concrete objects to support our learning and we have a big focus on 'Maths Talk' and being able to confidently verbalise our methods. 
 
RE
This term in RE we made Diya lamps out of salt dough to celebrate Diwali.
