Today we had a busy CLIC sessions in maths! We used cubes to show multiplication sums.
James brought in two of his toys to show us. Scruffy the bear and Wormy McSquirmy the centipede! He gave us clues to their names and we had to guess!

Today in social snack we watched Newsround where they spoke about toy companies stereotyping girls toys and boys toys. We began by discussing what is stereotypically a girls toy and what is stereotypically a boys toy. Then we talked about our thoughts on the matter splitting into 2 groups, one for yes and one for no.
After 5 minutes of working in our teams we had a mini debate on whether there should be separate toys for girls and boys or all toys should be the same.
We we came up with:
– Instead of pink packaging for girls and blue packaging for boys toy companies could have a mix of colours or use a neutral colour.
– Some girls like to play with cars and some boys like to play with dolls
– Boys and girls should not be embarrassed to want toys packaged in stereotypically girl or boy colours

For homework this week p5/6 have been asked to copy out their spelling words 3 times in their jotter along with 3 sentences. As a class we have been focussing on VCOP, using WOW words and Exciting Openers, to up level our writing. Sentences must include a wow word and an exciting opener. Please also complete the spelling activity Spelling Snails for each of your words. If you are feeling creative you can give your snails a Christmas twist with adding some santa hats or elf ears!
The Green and Orange reading groups both have book detectives due on Tuesday 2nd December.
We will be moving on from the 7 times table at the end of the week so practice them until you know them inside out.
