Mrs Charlesworth: October 2017
Well, another week seems to have flown by! Firstly can I say thank you to all the parents who came to join us for our harvest service at the church, the children had been working very hard on their singing and words and it really paid off- they did a great job and the service was enjoyed by all.
Our English began with a little shock this week as we began to explore the book 'Wall' by Tom Clohosy Cole. The book looks at the Berlin Wall and the difficulties for those on either side. To explore this, Base 4 took part in a role play; due to orders from the government our class was to be split, and once split you could only use the resources and facilities in your given area. This meant that some children had access to the study room, computers and playtime whereas others were not- was this fair? What could be done? What would happen to those that tried to help their friends? The children were brilliant and the role play really helped our understanding of not only the book but of the issues that surround it. From this the children then explored the front cover, created their own title and blurb and have even written a diary entry using the book as a stimulus.
In maths we have been busy solving addition and subtractions problems- something that, at the begining of the term, was really tricky however the children are becoming far more confident. Well done- this is down to your hard work and focus.
The children have done a great job of presenting their RE projects to the class, they were confident to share their work with the class. We have continued our computing work and been busy working on our topic books. As well as all this we have had PE and swimming .
I hope everyone has a lovely weekend — I look forward to seeing you on Monday.
