Cromer Bubble Friday, 2nd October Blog
Hello Cromer Bubble,
This week has rushed by! Where did it go? I hope you all had a lovely week.
We still have the unsolved Mystery of the Blue Greyfriars Academy Cardigan. If you know anything about it, please contact me! The cardigan needs a home.
P.E. on Tuesday – please come to school in your P.E. kit.
Swimming on Wednesday – please bring your kit. Next week is groups C & D.
Please don’t bring anything from home except your coat/jacket and a packed lunch (if you aren’t having school dinners).
We’ve been busy doing our Power Maths and have been working on all 4 operations.
We worked out that if you are dividing by a large number, for example 960 divided by 16, you can use the factors of 16 (4,4 or 2,8) we chose of 2 and 8, you can divide 960 by 2, then divide that answer by 8 and you get the same answer as if you divide by 16. As we don’t know our 16 times table we used the factors.
That’s another reason why your times tables are so important!
In literacy this week, we have been continuing our work with ‘Doors’. We looked at the pattern of three, adverbs, semi-colons, adverbs and character development in writing.
Here is some of our work on semi-colons:
I went to school; it was great! (Franky)
My auntie’s dog scratched me; he knew I was scared. (Erica)
I went to the park; I fell over. (Kacie)
I went BMXing; I learnt a new trick. (Preston)
I had fun once; it was awful. (Jack)
I was walking the dog; he dragged me behind him. (Brayden)
I was doing my tackling tables; I improved dramatically! (anon)
Here we are, hard at work:

We also worked on adverbs and how repositioning them in a sentence can really make a difference to the emphasis and meaning of the sentence.
Here is some of our work:

Here is Annabelle’s work:
In Computing we looked at Spam and what we should do with it if we get it:
First of all, we need to recognise it as spam. What to look for:
- The sender doesn’t know your name
- It has unknown links to click
- There are a lot of pictures
Once you have identified it as spam, you should:
- Move it to the junk folder.
- Tell an adult.
- DO NOT respond to it (that way the spammer will know that your address is active and works!)
We’ve been hard at work in Cromer bubble:
We’ve had some great scores and dramatic improvements over the week in Tackling Tables. Well done to:
Keep up the hard work!

I had a great week Cromer Bubble and I look forward to seeing you all next week!
