Wow! What an exciting week we have had down in Little Fish. We have finished writing our own traditional tales this week and we have enjoyed sharing them with our friends. In Maths we have now finished at looking at multiplication and division and have been consolidating our knowledge in morning maths. But...most exciting of all...on Thursday...we made...catapults! We were extremely lucky to have a group of Y10 DT students come down from Penrice to help us too! We spent the day testing out structures (using tooth picks and sweets), creating moving catapults on the learn pads and making catapults that work out of lolly pop sticks, cotton reels, elastic bands and pegs.
Thank you to the students from Penrice. You were extremely helpful both to us and our teachers!!

This week we have been able to immerse ourselves in our Castles topic. We began by looking at the features of a castle and the different parts and their uses. We looked in detail at a Motte and Bailey castle and how their defences supported them in battle.
In Maths we have begun to look at Multiplication and were introduced to the x symbol, looked arrays, and used practical resources to solve problems.
On Monday we were alerted to a disaster scene where a straw and stick house had been blown down! We explore the crime scene and began to learn our new story 'The Three Little Knights!'

Another great week in school this week. After the excitement of our launch days last week everyone has settled back into routine and back into normal lessons. The children have begun to look at multiplication and division in Maths this week and have completed a piece of 'dazzle' writing based on a previous story they had learnt. In Science we explored a range of materials, what they are used for, how they can change shape and why some materials are better for some things than others.

What an amazing first two days back after the Christmas break! The children all looked brilliant in their costumes on the first day back. We had Princesses and Knights and even a jousting horse! The children took part in a range if activities spanning two days. These included: making crowns, creating their own shield, learning a medieval song and dance and building castles out of junk modelling. The children worked individually and in teams to create their outstanding art work and are ready to get going and learn all about castles this term.

We made it! What an eventful last few weeks we have had. We've had our nativity, Christmas DT day, our art exhibition, Christmas lunch, Christmas parties, a pantomime and a visit from a very special Father Christmas! :-) All amidst learning all about money in maths and writing our own nativity booklets. I hope the children enjoy their well earned rest and have a fantastic Christmas. Thank you to all those who have brought in Christmas presents, we are very lucky staff. Happy Christmas to all! :-)
