Roald Dahl fun

What a lovely first week back we've had together.  We immersed ourselves in the wonderful world of Roald Dahl on Wednesday where we found out fascinating facts about Roald Dahl's life, enjoyed the first episode of Revolting Rhymes, performed his humorous version of Cinderella and then drew some excellent pictures of your favourite Roald Dahl characters. They will look great on display in the classroom. We have got a lot more to learn about Roald Dahl and his masterpieces over the next few weeks and I look forward to our project day where we can dress up as a Roald Dahl character and then come back to school in the evening for a story night.


You have all worked very hard in Numeracy this week too, investigating 2D and 3D shapes. We have learned some tricky new shapes and concepts. I wonder if you can explain to your grown ups at home what you have learned. They certainly will be impressed if you can explain what parallel and perpendicular lines are, if you can show them what a trapezium, parallelogram, quadrilateral or a rhombus is or if you can spot any acute, obtuse or 90 degree angles anywhere.  Oh and don't forget those triangle brothers! Remember there are three of them and they all have special properties. Well done all of you and to think we've only been back for three days!


You have a new Roald Dahl homework sheet in your books for this weekend and remember to give your grown ups your new spelling and reading card. Keep practising these words at home as it really helps your literacy learning.


Have a good weekend and I'll see you on Monday.

P.S. We are going to a cross country event on Wednesday so remember to bring your slips back on Monday and check you have trainers, jogging bottoms, a jumper and a plastic carrier bag in your P.E. kit.
