Week of 10th December
This week is 'Enterprise week' at school. Murray Edwards class will be making Christmas decorations and gingerbread to sell at the school Christmas fair. We will be working out how much the materials, to make our products, cost and estimating how much we may make from our sales. We will use this information to calculate our potential profit.
In Maths, we will be continuing our work on perimeter and area, including calculating both of these for irregular shapes.
In English, we have been writing explanation texts. The children have been explaining how the Premier League works, how to look after your pets and how to play Minecraft, among other things. This week we will be finishing our learning on explanation texts.
As well as this we will be going to see 'Aladdin' at the Cambridge Arts Theatre, and a number of children in our class will be completing the bikeability course.
Finally, children brought in their half-termly projects homework and discussed it with their classmates.
