What an exciting week we have had! Mr Freeman had a lovely surprise for Pickmere this week – a trip on the minibuses to cheer on the ‘Tour of Britain’ cyclists. Mr Freeman praised Pickmere for their excellent conduct and behaviour out of school – well done everyone!

In literacy this week, pupils have explored the book ‘Flotsam’ and have used dictionaries to find out what 'Flotsam' means. Children have done lots of inference activities which have required them to analyse pictures and different items which had been washed up on a beach. 

In maths, we have started the new academic term by looking at place value. All children have worked really hard to read and understand the value of numbers up to 1,000,000. Next week, we shall begin to look at negative numbers.

As a class we have looked at e-safety and children have had opportunity to practise their coding skills independently. To tie in with our topic for this term, children researched  some great inventions such as the fire extinguisher, the lightbulb and chocolate!

This term, in RE we are learning about christianity and how the parables can spread good news across our faith. We have started by looking at the school bible quote and discussing what it means to us as individuals. We had a lovely CARE lesson this week; children discussed how they could be helpful in everyday life and children came up with some lovely ideas.

Lastly, Pickmere have been VERY excited to get their first set of homework. On Thursday, children should have brought home their homework folders with all needed resources; their first piece of homework is due in on Friday 20th September. Well done to all those children that have read to an adult at least 3 times this week. Reading diaries are checked regularly so please make sure these are being filled in.

We hope you have a super weekend!
