Completed their end of unit assessment on the Four Operations ( x - / + ). These hard working children managed to triple their average class score from the start of the unit! Amazing!
We’ve started writing our independent stories based on Kensuke’s Kingdom – they’ve planned them well, so that they are as exciting and engaging as possible. I’m looking forward to reading the finished result
Discovered the Hindu story of ‘the man in the well’… let’s put it this way, he had a very bad day!
