Boscawen Newsletter 8th January 2016

Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back!
This week, have started our new topic, Shake, Rock and Roll. We have been thinking about the structure of the earth and how volcanoes form. We looked at a selection of stones and thought about the similarities and differences between them. We also built towers and knocked them over by causing earthquakes (shaking the tables they were built on!)
We have also started reading our new class book – The Firework-Makers Daughter by Philip Pullman, an exciting story about a girl who wants to follow in her father’s footsteps and become a firework-maker, but he does not think it is a suitable job for her. The story follows her adventures as she tries to prove herself.
In Maths, we have been consolidating our knowledge on place value. Next week, we will be concentrating on mental maths and practising different strategies to help us solve mental maths problems.
We are delighted to let you know that our class assembly will be at 2.30pm on Tuesday 2nd February 2016. We hope you can all make it to see all the children’s hard work!
As always, if you have any questions or would like to talk to us, please come in to see us or email us on or .
Thank you.
Mrs Smitheram and Mrs Burns.
