It has been an interesting week in Birch Class and I am so proud of everyone for how hard they've been working and how they've conducted themselves in school!
Continuing our movie narrative writing, the class have been looking at how to improve their on writing using different sentence structures. They've looked at how to improve individual sentences and then practicing editing as they write, even improving Miss Simpson's handwriting and I've been mind blown by the developing skills! From strengthening verbs to adding more detail, it has been amazing!
We've moved on from angles to shapes in our properties of shapes unit. So far we have recapped polygons, triangles and quadrilaterals and the children have been blazing through the work. It is very impressive! I am looking forward to moving onto measuring lengths and angles of shapes and 3D shapes next week.
Our afternoons have been filled with lots of rehearsals this week as we get ever closer to our production of A Midsummer's Night Dream. I am delighted with how the show is coming together and how invested the children are in making it the best that they can be. They have been working so hard, particularly with the run throughs which can be quite intense but they have remained focused and enthusiastic and it hasn't gone unnoticed! I am so looking forward to having you all see it in just a few week's time!
