Violet 2





Week Beginning Monday 19th November


Hi everyone! What a busy but brilliant week we've had! Preparations for our Christmas show, The Twelve Days of Christmas, are well under way!

These are the songs we are singing (if you get an opportunity to practise at home!):

  • Somewhere Only We Know
  • Hallelujah
  • Santa Claus is Coming to Town
  • Stay Another Day (though we've changed some of the lyrics to that one frown)



We have continued reading The Invention of Hugo Cabret and we have been gripped! We've used the story this past week to help develop our retrieval and inference skills, and have also compared quotes in the story to a character's internal thoughts. We also used prepositional phrases to help us write a superbly descriptive paragraph about the 'drama' in the train station!



We've been tackling BODMAS this week and have used our newfound knowledge of the order of operations to solve a wide range of problem solving and reasoning questions. We also carried out a BODMAS speed challenge - watch this space!
