We enjoyed our trip to the River Rea this morning. We saw ducks and a heron on the river and looked at the meanders and the direction the river flow. We also enjoyed playing in the park and in the autumn leaves.
We have spent the afternoon learning more about rivers. We now know how a river is made and can use some very big words to describe the parts of a river. We are all looking forward to our river trip tomorrow.
We also have a fantastic Bonfire Night and Diwali display in our classroom. Come in and have a look at the pretty lights!
Our work from Maths Week looks fantastic on display in our classroom.

This afternoon we explored lots of different Maths activities. We played maths games on the I-pads, did maths jigsaw puzzles, used the scales to weigh and compare different objects, thought about symmetry by placing objects symmetrically on a large grid, used measuring jugs to compare the capacities of different containers and even learned how to use a compass to draw different sized circles.
Today the tower challenge continued. We showed a lot more teamwork today and, by the end of the session, had improved our towers.
This morning we took part in the Magic Squares number challenge. It was hard!! Well done to Nathan who was the overall winner.
Today we were set a challenge. We had to make a very tall tower using just sellotape and three newspapers. We worked in four groups. the towers are starting to take shape. We are looking forward to continuing tomorrow and seeing who the winner is.
