Hi Everyone

What a fantastic trip we had to the Liverpool Maritime Museum on Wednesday. I hope that you have enjoyed looking at our photgraphs on Twitter. The children were fabulous, we were really proud of them. Seeing them working together on the Albert Docks to describe their location using the four points of the compass was great.They showed friendship and kindness to each other. The children all looked super in their own clothes for Children in Need day on Friday, thank you for your kind donations to this wonderful charity. 

Our spellings this week focus on adding the suffix 'y'.

spotty, runny, s;oppy, funny, muddy, nutty, boggy, yummy


In Writing, we will begin our new story The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson. The children will make predictions and gather information about the characters.
In Maths we will begin looking at number fact families for addition and subtraction ie 12+8 = 20, 8+12=20, 20-12=8 and 20-8=12. The children will explore the commutativity of addition and understand why this is not the case with subtraction. We will also introduce a times tables grid that will focus on the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
In Science, we will combine our artistic and scientific skills and decide on the best material to provide texture to our art work and conduct an experiment to see the effect of salt and paint. The children are using the idea of texture to create an ocean, linking to our Titanic learning.
We are going to be exremely busy learning our lines for the Christmas play! Thank you for all of the costumes and for the time you are giving to the children to support them with their rehearsing at home. Please continue to practise the script with the children each night as the day is getting closer and closer... The children's singing is sounding beautiful, a little sneak preview is on Twitter! 
Thank you also for your continued support with home reading, spellings and times tables. As always, please come and see me, email or ring me if you have any questions or queries.
Many thanks
Mrs Rice and Mrs Southern.
