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!

Clarty Commandos
Earlier this term went on a trip to the Clarty Commandos forest school. We had so much fun! We completed the assault course as individuals and then as a team, lit fires, played in the mud kitchen, battled it out on the balance beams and so much more - it was the best day! 
Kayaking
Last term we spent Friday afternoons kayaking on the river at Morpeth. It was amazing. We developed incredible resilience, battling the weather to not only get in our kayaks, but to confidently move in 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.
