This week we have been learning to multiply and divide fractions by whole numbers and other fractions in maths.  In English we have been using adjectives and adverbs to describe things in our writing and learning about Parenthesis. In RE we have been learning about the term 'Messiah'.
On Monday we invited the year 5 children from Grampound Road school to take part in an exercise regime with us.  We taught them how to survive as an astronaut on Mars by keeping fit.  It was great fun and everyone worked really well together.
On Friday we started rehearsals for our Christmas production, it's already looking good.  The children all know what their costumes are to be and could they be brought into school as soon as possible please. If you have  any problems with getting costumes please come and see Mr. J or Mrs. A and we will endeavour to sort it out for you!
