Okay, okay...Let's start this week with a quick game of Catchphrase.  You know? Say what you see...Say what you see...

Take a look at the picture below and see if you can guess the familiar phrase or saying.   Ready?  Here goes.

Well, did you guess it? It was...Time Flies.  You guessed? Well done.  We know what you're thinking, `they say that every week'...`Wow, hasn't this week flown by?'. Well, yes you're kind of right.  However, (comma) this week we did it the an image.  We know, a little sneaky, but it's true -time really does fly by.

In English this week, we have been looking at another book by David Wiesner.  This book is called Flotsam.  Flotsam is a word that we often hear with jetsam.  We now know the difference -ask us, and we'll tell you.  Flotsam is the story of a boy who, whilst at the beach with his parents, finds an underwater camera.  When he has the film from the camera developed, he finds some amazing pictures.  Take a look at some of the pictures, and then some of our 10 minute writing challenges below them.

In Maths, we have been revising the work that we have covered this half term.  On Thursday, we completed our assessment.  We've got to say -it was really quite easy. Would you be able to answer some of these questions?  Take a look.
In PSHE as you may know, we have been looking at the way that media portrays images, and how these might give us different messages about ourselves.  An American journalist, Esther Honig, sent the same picture of herself to 20 countries asking graphic designers to `edit the photo to make it look beautiful'.  Each of them came back so differently.  We think this shows that we all see beauty as something different, that even though it is the same person, that how she looks doesn't change the real person inside.  Take a look at the pictures below.
The book fair has been in school all week.  On Tuesday, not only did we get chance to see Year 3's amazing `Special Person Assembly', but we also had some time enjoying the books.

Finally, have your say.  Each week you will have a chance to decide on which new song we will learn in next week's whole school assembly.  Click on the link below to take part in an online vote.
