If you go down to the woods today you’d better go in disguise – because P3 are there!

Well it’s been another hectic week. We’ve written stories about a stormy night in a wood, kept really busy with our maths and read lots of our group novels. We also had the second week of our maths problem solving and this time 2 different groups succeeded. They are very tricky and everyone in the group needs to help out or we won’t puzzle out the answers and win extra golden time! We learned about weather forecasts and forecasters and got to try being one for an afternoon. Everyone seemed to like the idea of lots of rain. And talking about water, we learned more about the story of Noah from the bible. We had to listen very carefully so we could sort out 14 different bits of the story into the right order. Having got lots better at our catching we are now learning how to throw properly with our feet in the correct position and how to move our arms. And on Thursday afternoon, Richard the ranger took us down to the woods to look for minibeasts. We had to use a chart (key) to see if we could identify what sort of beasties we discovered. Cameron even managed to catch a toad! How he got it in the magnifying box¬† no-one is quite sure!!

I like going into the woods with the Richard the Ranger because we collect lots of insects in our tubs and learn all about them. Kaitlyn ?

Nice piece of homework this week from Mr. Cain on the first person to walk on the moon. Made me think about the guy who didn’t get to walk on the moon because he was driving the Command Module, whose name (Wikipedia informs me) was Michael Collins. Cissy said he should be famous too, because without him they other people couldn’t have walked on the moon. It’s amazing how thought provoking homework can be!

When Cameron found the toad it was very exciting and when you looked in the magnifying glass it was HUMUNGOUS!

The group nearly made it to more golden time. We’ll try harder next time!
