This week in Otters

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

In Otters we have been learning about adding and subtracting decimal places [0.1, 0.01 and 0.001].

Here is an example; 2.58+3.68=6.26

In English we have been writing a newspaper report about a book called Cosmic.

We included interesting vocabulary, quotes and punctuation.

Otters: Computing project

Computing

This term Otters have been in groups planning to create an app. We have made PowerPoints about our app in our groups and a video to explain it or show an example. Once we had completed our PowerPoints we had to showcase them to our panel of *Experts* (Also known as: Mrs Jeff’s, Mrs Taylor and Miss Strang) after we had showcased our PowerPoints the teachers and some students asked us questions.

Some of these questions we had no answer for but some other questions we all had good ideas of how to answer them.

In Harry’s group we had a PowerPoint about our ideas for different parts of the app like: Homework tracker, Spelling bee etc. their video idea was about how the app could help you with your phone and how it would remind you earlier when to charge you phone.

Theo’s group made a PowerPoint about their app Just Remember. In their presentation, they talked about the app helping you remember things for everyday life and before and after school.

ENGLISH!!

In English we have been learning about cosmic. It’s a book when an unusually tall 12 year

old gets a chance of a lifetime to go on a rollercoaster called the rocket but it was a real rocket.  When he gets there on a private jet he meets dr drax.  A lady who made the rocket she said if anything goes wrong such as if they go into outer space any existence of them will be denied.  Then they went to outer space in the secret rocket to space. They all voted for Samson tow to go to outer space. But Liam went to space. They were playing hide and seek. Hasan went missing in the rocket ship. Liam went outside to look for Liam.

CHILDREN IN NEED!

On Friday 17th November, we will be dressing up in silly spotty mufti.

There will also be a spotty picture competition for £1. It needs to be in by Wednesday 15th.

There will be a cake sale; all cakes will be 50p.

We hope we will raise lots of money for children in need.

Children in Need

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

Children in need day:
This week we are focusing on children in need. In Cotton End primary we think charity is very important. We will be donating 50p for one cake, every donation goes to children in need, a very good charity. Children In Need raises money for children who have very ill.
Even £1 could help a life tremendously. To dress up in a spotty costume the price is very small considering it could potentially save a life.

We hope to raise a lot of money and save a few lives.
Thank you for your time.
