It is the end of what has been a very strange term. From starting with a teacher training day in January and expecting to see the children the next day to quickly getting the school organised and ready for key worker children through to welcoming 5/6A and the rest of the school back, it has certainly been a rollercoaster! The last four weeks of school have been full of learning, laughter and quite a few yawns! As always the children have impressed us with their positive attitudes and perseverance.
This week we have completed our Greek myths and we have been so impressed by the quality of the writing. The children's stories were filled with imaginative heroes and fantastic mythical creatures. The settings they described were breath-taking and seeing the various twists and turns of the myths was a joy.
In maths we have been looking at collecting data and collating it in line graphs, this involved a pre-cross country race which proved useful for later in the week. In RE the class looked back at what they had learnt about Christianity, Islam and Hinduism and considered why each religion puts so much emphasis on prayer.
The main excitement of the week was the eagerly anticipated cross country. It was an impressive and action packed event with the overall winner being Tom, special mention to Harry and Innes for coming 2nd and 3rd respectively.
It has been lovely to catch-up so many parents via Teams and on the phone for parent's evening. It is always lovely to be able to talk about how well the children have been doing.
Enjoy the Easter Holidays,
Mrs Williams and Mrs Young
