Oh my goodness what a week. Each morning the children have been doing a range of assessments . From the start we made it very clear to the children that all we expect is for them to try their best and we have been so proud of them as they have completely done that. They have approached each one with great spirit, lots of positivity and a determination to do their best.
In English this week the children wrote their diary entries based on Street Child. they were so excited to do this-I think his story has really touched a chord with the children.It was brilliant to see the children get into the character of Jim Jarvis and show their understanding not only of diary entries but also the emotions Jim would have been experiencing. Certainly quite a rollercoaster ride for poor Jim. In shared reading the children have been writing book reviews based on their favourite books, it has been so lovely to hear the children read their chosen books and share them with friends. In maths the children began to look at the 12 hour and 24 hour clock, reinforcing previous knowledge and learning some more. In history we looked at the British Empire in the time of Queen Victoria with the children looking at the size of the empire and the impact it had on those who lived in it. In RSE in line with this week being anti-bullying week we looked at the impact that bullying can have and ways in which children can deal with bullying and support their peers in going through it. The children applied themselves brilliantly and are now busy designing their anti-bullying posters. In ICT we looked at internet safety online and in particular social media and how we interact with our friends online. Science saw the children look at the properties of different materials and how certain materials are chosen for certain tasks.
Children in Need Day saw a fantastic range of costumes with us particularly honoured to have both Hermione and Harry take time out of their busy day at Hogwarts to join us!
take care everyone.
