Despite a shortened week, we have achieved a lot.
The children have enjoyed producing their recruitment poster to tempt some of the gullible into joining a gang of pickpockets (I have said that this is not something that we would generally condone!). There were some lovely puns : Pick a new career in acquisitions/Pick us and pocket a top, London career. I think that they’ll have some applicants.
The writing has not stopped there either as a challenge has been set to record as many positive and negative effects of globalisation on our lives as they can remember from our Geography unit. There may have been a small carrot dangled but the competition has been fierce to remember the most.
In Maths, we have consolidated our learning regarding coordinates and reasoning about the vertices, perimeters and areas of shapes on coordinates grids. If you find anything where they can calculate areas and perimeters at home, that would be great to firm up learning.
I have sent home the 4 star spelling mat and would appreciate if you could test your child through the list and circle insecure words. We can pick up common errors next week.
This morning, we enjoyed a Woodland School session. The woods looked so different to when we last visited with water in the pond and the irises grown up. There were beautiful carpets of celandines and bluebells too. They were challenged with creating a natural map of the area.
This afternoon, they have enjoyed an afternoon working with Lydia towards the school play and have been learning a rap – do ask for a performance.
Thank you so much for your contributions of wool and fabric for our weaving project. I think that we probably have plenty now and I’m anticipating a lovely wall hanging that will grace the school for years to come.
I am also planning a fun afternoon and picnic for the end of their SATs week but shall write more about that next week.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
