We have had another fantastic week in Outstanding Oaks. In English, we continued to delve into our class story, 'The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane,' and wrote superb diary entries detailing the next events of his journey. Edward has met many different characters now, who have impacted his life. We can't wait to see who he meets next. In maths, we have been continuing our learning on place value, and finished the week looking at number patterns. 

We really enjoyed geography this week and got the chance to create our own double page spreads all about different types of settlements in the UK. We found out about hamlets, villages, towns and cities and their characteristics. Finally, we finished off our week sketching outdoors by applying the skills and techniques of artist, Amedeo Modigliani.

We're looking forward to another fab week.

We've had a great week in Outstanding Oaks diving into our topics. In geography, we spent some time, using our compass skills and mapping skills to locate the counties of the United Kingdom. We kicked off our sound topic in science, by taking a sound walk around the school grounds. We thought about the different things that we could hear, and began to reflect on how we were able to hear them. In English, we've loved reading 'The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane' and taking on the challenge of writing from the perspective of Edward Tulane: a very arrogant  and over-confident character. Finally, in maths we've had fun exploring the relationship between 100 and 1000 and using this to solve problems. 

Have a lovely weekend.
