In Morpurgo this week we have continued to complete some of the projects we have been working on. Our English work has consisted of working together to shared write our own version of Jumanji. The children read their work out to the class and assessed the effectiveness of their own and other writing. In Maths, the children have worked really hard to continue developing their geometry skills and how a shape changes when translated and reflected.


Within our Topic sessions, we have continued our hard work in completing our projects. In DT we have continued to design and make our own electric cars ready to test and have our own class celebration! The children have been working on their accuracy, measuring, sawing and joining skills and we will hopefully complete our celebration event where the children test their cars in the coming week.


The children have also began some topic work surrounding the Amazon rainforest and this week had a focus on deforestation. The children debated their arguments for and against and also looked at possible solutions they could develop collaboratively. 


Thank you to all of the parents and carers this week for your support! 


Miss Stockman, Mr Hoyle and Mrs Ormerod.
