Friday 23rd October

This week in English, we finished our news reports on Wreck of the Zanzibar. We also had a reading reward play. We get extra play the more we read. I got a whole hour and 10 housepoints! Friday was our charity afternoon to raise money for the Cinnamon Trust, our chosen charity. It raises money so that elderly people can keep their pets with them.

 This term we've come back to school for the first time in 6 months. Everyone was so excited. We've had the best term and have had so much fun. That's it for this term. We hope you've had fun too. Also, we've had a brand new teacher and she's so kind and always makes you feel happy.

(Mrs Manson would like to point out that she didn't tell Keisha to write that last bit!!!)

This week we made boats out of recycling as part of DT day. We all thought it was super fun!

On DT day, we made boats with sails, flags, masts, cannons and ropes. We came up with names for our ships too (mine was called the Zanzibar).

Hot off the press...

Welcome back to Dickens class blog. I'm Keisha and this week's super fun and exciting things are we went to the church and did some art. Everyone had a great time learning about what inspires Christians.

In maths, this week we have been learning about addition. We have also done a science experiment where we made shapes out of plasticine to see if they would float.

I enjoyed doing Science because we made paper spinners, and we did an experiment as well. I enjoyed doing maths too - we needed to write it all out in our maths books and we got maths jotters, which were new to us.

This week, we had extra break and learnt how to role play in drama. We finished the book Wreck of the Zanzibar and we now get bagels every morning!
