Well, it’s been a very active week. Almost half the class completed the Bikeability Course (Stage 2) and they were active for most of Monday and Tuesday – thankfully the weather held. We had our normal PE lesson on Wednesday and then on Thursday afternoon the children took part in an Athletics Festival. Results were collated and the coach will compare these to the schools in our PE group and create a table of where we came in relation to the schools nearby – results to be published, when known!
We are now 20% or 1/5 the way through the year – a shocking fact! In Maths, we looked at prime, square and cubed numbers, common multiples, factors and the order of operations – quite meaty content but I am delighted to say the children enjoyed learning about them and that they did well in their associated activities. In Literacy, we continued with our Newspaper Unit and the children wrote a report about a truck fire. We discussed and completed some interesting activities relating to Black History Month and the children finished this term’s RE topic about Commitment.
I have set some homework for the Half Term but am aware that we haven’t marked last week’s yet – we will do this on the Friday in the first week back after Half Term – we ran out of time today! I have also given the children information about the forthcoming Head Boy and Head Girl Elections – they will commence after Half Term. The homework, for those wanting to participate, is to write a speech that includes their reasons for being Head Boy or Girl. We will record the speeches on the iPads when we return and then share them with the other classes. Normally the children would present in Assembly but these are being done virtually at the moment due to COVID. After the classes have viewed the speeches the school will vote for their Head Boy and Head Girl – those receiving the most votes will take their seat!
Have a fantastic Half Term break. I will close now thanking you for your support through the term and wishing to thank your children for a fun term. They have been superb in terms of learning in the COVID compliant classroom and eating lunch in class etc. They have also worked hard and I feel they are content and working well as a class unit. They can now enjoy a well deserved rest.
