The children of Beech class have made me so proud this week, they have been fantastic ambassadors for Chagford School!
In Science, we have been learning more in our Plants topic. We have been naming British trees, deciding if they are evergreen or deciduous, and searching for them on the school grounds. We have also been learning about British wildflowers and have managed to find many of them in the forest school and in the hedgerows around the school. Here are some photos of us searching!
In Maths, we have been carrying on with our multiplication topic focusing on making arrays to help us solve multiplication problems. Today we developed our learning to include doubling numbers, we used spots and a ladybird to help us. We had to put equal number of spots on both sides of the ladybird.
We had our last session with Devon Wildlife Trust this week and we were able to make a bug hotel. A HUGE thank you to Proper Job who kindly donated materials to make this possible.
One of the main reasons I was so proud of the children this week was due to our trip to Chagford Memory Café. The children showed patience, thoughtfulness, and kindness amongst many other skills. They socialised beautifully with the guests, listen avidly to their stories of time gone by and shared their own stories. We drew our own pictures of Queen Elizabeth II which we shared with everyone there, everyone thought they were excellent artists! Here are our pictures of the Queen. For more photos and details of our visit, then please do read Mr Finch's weekly newsletter.
