We have had a great week in Willow. Between assessments I have made sure the children have enjoyed a few fun activities. On Monday, the children had their usual PE session and we filmed our Highwayman dramas in the morning.
We have completed several assessments which will help me direct any interventions we may need and prepare us for the SATs in May.
In PSHE, we discussed the consequences of our choices and how to make decisions by looking at a problem from different viewpoints. In RE, the children learnt about Christmas customs and traditions and in History we learnt about Athens and Sparta and the Battle of Marathon.
The children completed their fraction topic and we are now looking at coordinates and translations. We will continue with this next week but I will make sure we find time to complete fun Christmas maths activities.
With next week in mind, we will block our DT project for the term. We are going to make buzzer games where you have to navigate a shoe box wire course without setting off the buzzer. It is a similar principle to the game ‘Operation’ – it combines some Science and our earlier class topic of ‘Fairgrounds’. I would be grateful if your child could bring in any empty cereal boxes you may have or any old shoe boxes as they create a good base for our games/models.
It was Christmas Jumper Day and Christmas Lunch on Friday – the children clearly enjoyed it and the visit from Santa on Thursday.
Have a great weekend.
