The children in Willow Class are working their socks off!In English we have been writing reports about different pets. We are now all experts in looking after turtles!In our Writers’ Cafe, we chose what we wanted to write from the menu – most people wanted to have a go at Story Soup or Poetry Pizza. We concentrated hard and worked independently for 40 minutes!In Maths today we have been measuring, using our decimetre strips. A decimetre is 10 centimetres. We measured each other and items around the classroom. We really enjoy practical work.Our afternoons have been mostly taken up with learning songs for the Christmas play and thinking about our topic – The Gunpowder Plot. We have learnt that King James was not especially kind to people who did not share his beliefs.
