Because we think that democracy is important, we decided that the best way to choose our next class author was to suggest which author we would like and provide reasons why. We then decided that a vote was a fair way to choose.
Here is the link to the game we played today. You were all fantastic at calculating with negative numbers so now have a go at ordering them.

Say "Hello!" to our three Reading Detective Supercoaches. Asmaa, Maryam and Nuha always work really hard to fill in their Reading Record with fantastic comments that show how they are learning.

This term, we will be learning all about jungles and rainforests. We have already completed some fantastic artwork in the style of Henri Matisse. We will start to look at the different plants and animals that live in rainforests and think about how we can sort them into different groups. We will also explore the different layers of the rainforest and investigate the features of each layer. What are you most looking forward to finding out about rainforests?
On Tuesday morning, we watched Tim Peake launch into space. We spent some of the morning talking about Tim and about the International Space Station. We all found it really interesting and inspiring.
