Through God’s love we learn together, grow together and achieve together.

In our English lessons we have continued to read our Hook with a Book 'Pig Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman.  We used the idea from this story to write a persuasive argument with the title 'Should animal organs be used for transplantations?' We ensured our writing used persuasive vocabulary, subjunctive form, rhetorical questions and statistics.

Translucent Geometric Shapes - Set of 408 - by Learning Resources LER1766 |  Primary ICT

In our maths lessons this week, we have been focussing on 2D shapes.  We have learnt about what angles inside a triangle, quadrilateral, pentagon, hexagon and octagon add up to.  We also learnt a lot about circles - we now know what a diameter, radius and circumference is!  We got a chance to use a compass to draw accurate circles.

We had a FABULOUS Topic lesson this week!  We made a model which represents the human heart.  It was great fun (and a bit messy!).  You can find pictures in our Photo Gallery on our Class Web Page.
