Our learning this half term
Our Woodhouses Winners this week:
Congratulations to Theo and Darcy who are our 'Woodhouses Winners' this week.
Theo is a lovely polite young man who is a pleasure to have in class. His is working hard on his writing and is really focused on making his handwriting clear to read.
Darcy has impressed the adults in class this week with her persistance when working on tricky maths problems. She is listening well to instructions and she is starting to sensibly ask for help whenever it is needed.
Well done to you both!

Reading - Don't forget to read at home at least twice this week. Remember to fill in your 'Around the World Reading Challenge' sheet with the book and how many pages that you have read. We will see just how far our class can travel via the power of reading!
Writing -This week we have been writing our own food poems using ideas from our story 'How to train your dragon'.
Click on the link below and read the poem 'I eat spaghetti with a spoon'.
Write down all the sets of rhyming words in the poem. Can you think of any more rhymes for these words?
Answer the questions at the end of the poem.
For your Maths homework this week, I would like you to complete some subtractions problems. Remember to start at the ones. Don't switch the digits around, BORROW a ten (or hundred). Show that you have done this on the problem.
