We've had an extremely busy first week back in Nunsmere class! 

On Tuesday it was World Book Day, and Nunsmere class loved dressing up as aliens, astronauts and all things space! We also enjoyed taking part in World Book Day mystery activities in maths, creating a book review and attending a workshop with our visiting author Damien Harvey. 

In our maths work this week we have continued rounding numbers with one decimal place to the nearest whole number. As well as revisiting our work of fractions of amounts, short multiplication and division, column addition and subtraction to complete our World Book Day maths mystery. 

We have combined literacy and topic this week. We have a focus on the arts and this week we have been learning about all things Shakespeare. The children researched Shakespeare and created a fact file using Purple Mash. We then explored the text of Macbeth, focusing on the witches' spell. The children focused on alliteration and rhyming couplets to create their own version of the witches' spell, inspired by Macbeth. Some of the outcomes were fantastic! Although I'm not sure how I feel about the spell written to "make your teacher wail"! The children enjoyed their Shakespeare work so much, we went on to read Romeo and Juliet on Friday afternoon and some children even brought their own Shakespeare books into class - it's lovely to see the children were still thinking about these lessons at home. 

We also had a KS2 cooking day this week. As part of our topic 'how do we celebrate difference?', we are exploring different cultures. This week, KS2 made dishes from different cultures. Year 3 focused on Italian cooking, Year 4 Indian, Year 5 Mexican and Year 6 Polish. Nunsmere class enjoyed learning new chopping techniques such as the bridge method when making their curry, and they particularly enjoyed dipping popadoms and naan bread in it afterwards! 

All homework and spellings for this half term are now on our school website under 'Nunsmere Homework' and have also been emailed out to you. 

 

Have a lovely weekend
