Comet Class Weekly News

Flying Even Higher!
Another super week has passed in Comet Class.  The children have really excelled at being 'confident communicators', beginning with Autumn who bravely offered to be the first in the class to prepare and present a review of a favourite book for our 'Sail away with a book...' display.  You did a great job, Autumn, and we really enjoyed hearing about 'Twas the Night Before Christmas', a poem and family favourite by Clement Clarke Moore.
 

 
We are now looking forward to the next presentation which will be led by Hermione.  She is thinking of sharing a book that she has written herself!

In our English lessons this week we have focused on the part of the story where the little swallow explains to the Happy Prince why he must fly to Egypt.  The Happy Prince then commands the swallow to stay with him.  The children have worked well in pairs in role as the two characters to create dialogue - orally at first and then in writing when composing the next part of their own versions of the story.  We have learned how to use speech marks correctly and have thought carefully about word choices to select more precise verbs than 'said'.

The children have been very keen to read some other stories by Oscar Wilde so, yesterday, we read the story of The Selfish Giant during our whole-class guided reading session.  It was great to see how the children made links between the themes of the two stories and we shall be discussing this further next week.

At the beginning of the week, the older children consolidated their work on Roman numerals in Mathematics.  They have really enjoyed this concept and have even had a go at recording some of their calculations using Roman numerals!  They were very interested to discover that the Romans had no symbol to represent zero though, so this caused a slight problem for some!  Take a look at the quiz they have prepared for you below:

Can you work out which numbers have been represented using lollipop sticks?

As we progressed through our week's Maths lessons, we have looked at comparing numbers using the inequality signs <, > before moving on to ordering numbers.  I have been particularly impressed with how well the children have tackled some 'meaty' problems involving these concepts and at how they have organised their work when solving them.  Well done, everyone.

Many children have earned stars this week for a range of reasons, including communicating confidently (both in and out of school), completing homework to a high standard, presenting maths work clearly and neatly, working well with a partner and much more.  A special mention to Leroy who has worked particularly hard this week and has gone home covered in shining stars!

As you can see, the Recognition Board is filling up nicely and almost all the children are on the board for demonstrating at least one of our values of love, kindness, patience or peace.  Let's see if we can support each other to get everyone on the the board.  You can help me by looking out for and letting me know of any Comets who have demonstrated one of these values.

Just one more week to go now until we can all have a well-deserved break for half-term.  Keep going, Comets, we are nearly there!  I am very much looking forward to meeting with your parents next week to share all your progress and achievements over the first seven weeks of the year.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone,
Miss Mandelson
