Wow! I have been blown away by Hawthorn this week. Both in the classroom and outside!
Within the classroom, we have challenged the children to write their own chapter of 'How to train a dragon'. My word they have worked hard and risen to the challenge. I have been left on the edge of my seat with many cliff hangers. I have been so immersed in the description I truly believed I was a part of the story. A huge well done Hawthorn.
In maths, we have been looking at methods to check our addition and subtraction sums by looking at the inverse. We used the Bar Model to support us in our understanding, some very challenging work completed.
With the French teacher, the children have been using the phrases j’adore/j’aime/je n’aime pas / je déteste.
We have started exploring the topic of 'Rivers'. Can the children tell you What the start of a river is and the end of a river? (source and mouth!)
Out of the classroom, the children in Hawthorn have made use huge proud. We've had a group of children being inspired to make our school grounds a better place by litter picking and a huge bag they collected.
We've had a couple of sporting events this week, cross- country and football tournaments, The children did themselves proud and were amazing ambassadors for Chagford Primary.
My proudest moment, which brought a tear to my eye, Molly sharing her amazing piano playing with the whole school in our celebration assembly. The courage it must have taken her to play for us all was absolutely amazing. A very talented young lady! Well done Molly.
The end of another week for Hawthorn.
