We all survived the October holidays and have arrived back at school raring to go. This week started with an outside literacy lesson where we showed some teachers who had come all the way from Iceland how good we were are writing.  In teams, we had to make trails for Mr Cain to follow so we had to make sure all our clues were well written and easy to follow. We all did superbly. The Icelandic teachers were very impressed! We have finished our Aliens topic (even though we are visiting the observatory next week) and started to brainstorm what we knew about Ancient Egypt – our new topic. Maths, reading and all the normal stuff kept going but one new thing started this week – the daily run. It is hard going but already we are getting better. Less of us need to stop and walk. We made apple crumble so that we could put our secret recipe on the school calendar for next year. It tasted delicious. So much so that Mr Cain hardly got any, much to his disappointment! And Richard the Ranger came in on a very windy Thursday afternoon to take us down into the woods to learn about trees. We got to identify leaves and fruits and see which trees they had come from. And we also learned how to tell how old a tree is and measure how high it is.
