After such a busy half-term, we are very ready for a break! We have not slowed the pace of learning in this short term, so hopefully, we'll come back fully recharged and ready to continue our learning journey. 

On Monday, we visited Eden Camp as part of our learning for our World War 2 topic. It was freezing, but it was so interesting that we hardly noticed! We found out what the Blitz might have felt like and we learned what life was like for those that were left behind, as well as those that went off to fight. We all agreed that we had a fantastic time!


We had a bit of snow on Tuesday! It didn't amount to anything after all our excitement, so we were a little bit disappointed. Undeterred, we wrapped up well and went out with Mr Bates for a spot of Forest Schools on Wednesday morning. Again, it was cold, wet and muddy, but we had a brilliant time- like always! We used tools kindly bought for us by FOSS to chop, saw and chisel and undertake our own woodland management.

In Maths this week, we have been learning about mixed and improper fractions and their equivalents. 

As we have now mastered basic formula and the SUM formula in spreadsheets in computing, we have moved onto problem solving and deciding for ourselves which formula would be the best one to solve our problem.

We wish you all a very relaxing break and we'll see you raring to go, on the 19th February!

Mrs Tillson, Mrs Gurney and all of Elm Class.
