Mr Lindop: May 2019
We're halfway through a very busy half term, but there's no let up in the effort and energy Base 4 are putting into their learning.
This week, we spent some time looking at the UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development and explored some of the challenges which the world faces between now and 2030. We started by being told to draw a picture, but Mr Lindop had not given enough crayons, pencils or paper out and instead, kept most of them for himself. We discussed how this felt and used this to explore fairness, inequality and explore solutions to some of the problems in the world. I was really impressed with how the children maturely discussed and asked questions about some challenging topics and how energised they were to do something about it.
We have also been continuing with shape and space. Year 4 had some reflection time by using mirrors to help check symmetry in 2D shapes and patterns. Meanwhile, year 5's were using the properties and their known facts about angles to find missing angles, lenghts of sides and perimeter.
In English, we have been writing our diary entries and I've been amazed by the outcomes. We've had some super writing using the ideas we've put together over the last week, which has led to some wonderful writing from the perspective of our main character.
As you will have seen, we have also been bread making in D&T this week. Check out the news article to find out what we did.
Have a fantastic half term, get some rest, enjoy the outdoors, keep reading and I'll see you all on June 3rd.
