Happy New Year and welcome back to school! This week we have started work on our new topic 'Land Ahoy', where we will be exploring life as a pirate, learning all about water and working on our Geography skills. We have started to transform our classroom into an underwater world! On Tuesday, we also had the chance to interview a pirate to get us thinking about what we would like to learn.

This week has been anti bullying week, so across school each class have been learning about different aspects of bullying. We hope to have raised awareness and understanding of what bullying is, how to prevent it and how to respond if you feel you are being bullied. Each class have created an aspect of our new anti-bullying display, for our part we focused on thinking of ways we can prevent bullying and bring each other UP! 
 
Today has been Children in Need day and the class enjoyed dressing up or wearing non-uniform, to help the school raise money for a good cause. We would like to say a big thank you for all the money that has been donated. Thank you to Emily M who brought in some delicious Pudsey Bear biscuits for the class which they all really enjoyed. Take a look at some pictures of our day below, we were even lucky enough to have a visit from Pudsey Bear himself!

This week we have been working hard on using the column method of addition and subtraction to solve two step word problems. In English, we have began to read our new book 'The Pied Piper of Hamelin'. 
 
We have also had a visit from RNLI lifeguards. They talked to us about how to stay safe around water. We now know what to do if we get into danger with water and can tell you what the different flags stand for at the beach. Look at some of the pictures below.
 
Congratulation to Neve, who received our Headteacher's Award this week for fantastic effort in maths all week. Our core value award this week went to Ethan, who was voted for by the rest of the class for being respectful.
