This Week’s Learning


This week in Maths we have been using column addition to add two digit and three digit numbers. We started the week by adding numbers that didn’t bridge (e.g. 23 + 35). We carefully laid our work out using the squares in our books to help us understand the place value of each digit. During the week, we moved on to bridging ones and tens.


This week in Topic we gathered lots of descriptive vocabulary about Litterbug Doug and then used these to help us write a character description for him using lots of adjectives and adverbs. After this, we created actions and a story map for the story. Finally, we planned and wrote our very own version of Michael Recycle and Litterbug Doug. We innovated the story and changed the setting and Doug’s animal friend.

Get Over £600 Worth Of Free Books For Our School

The Sun has teamed up with HarperCollins to provide primary schools across England, Wales and Northern Ireland a free pack of 106 books, worth more than £600! All we have to do to earn these books is collect tokens printed in The Sun newspaper and The Sun on Sunday from Saturday November 23rd 2019 to Sunday January 18th 2020. To collect the total just 45 people need to collect tokens daily. At a school the size of Avenue, this should be something we can achieve!

Our Reading Champions will be collecting the tokens from classes over the course the challenge so please have them ready in school bags for collection.

Thank you in advance for your support and can I also take this opportunity to remind you that children should be reading at home daily and a comment should be made in their home, school liaison books. Please refer to the year group reading trails for books we suggest. Happy reading!
