Three weeks already!

The term seems to be whizzing by. So, what have Class 6 been up to over the week ?

It was our first session of swimming on Monday, which I attended. I have to say how impressed I was with behaviour, effort and speed of being ready. I'm sure the children will keep this going through the term.

We have continued to work on our class book ' The Children of Castle Rock'. This week we have been looking at writing news articles about a particular event that happens within the story. I can't give too much information away, as we will explain a bit more at our class assembly. 

In Maths we have really focused our attention this week on reasoning. We have looked at both verbal and written reasoning and have discussed the different strategies and techniques to answer certain questions. It has been a little challenging in places but we have put in lots of effort or have persevered. You will be able to see some of this learning at the 'Open Session', which is coming up soon.

Congratulations to the children in class 6 for being selected as House Captains, I'm sure they will do the job well.

Mrs Archer has been continuing to look with the children about birdhouses and the type of designs they shall try to make. I can't wait to see the finished products.

In Geography, we have specifically researched about what it would be like living on an island and how would this affect our way of life, from what we are used to living at home. In just a few weeks the children seem to have absorbed so many facts already. Thank you for all the yummy treats and selection of cooking that children have carried out as part of their home learning.

Speaking of cooking, I was delighted to hear that the children enjoyed eating as well as making a traditional dish - stovies. They also made some tasty shortbread, even with a hint of lemon.

Everyone has worked so well together in our other PE lessons of football and dance. Well done to the boys who played in their first football game of the season at Whitehill. Again, I could see so many learning powers being used.

Another full week gone, however may see some of you at the St Ipps Festival tomorrow. Here are a few reminders for next week. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.
