Miss Phillips: September 2015
What a GREAT start to the new school year!
We have had a busy few days in Base 4 getting to know each other, getting our brains working again after the long break and most importantly the children making sure I am getting the school routines right (especially the time for break and lunch)! The children have been busy deciding on classroom rules and taking on different job roles in the classroom, which include keeping our classroom neat and tidy and preparing for their lessons.
I am very impressed with how quickly and sensibly the children have settled into the new school year as year 5's, but also the way they have made me feel so welcome at Wrenbury Primary school. We have worked hard this week and the children have put in 100% effort; they have given everything a go and we are starting to learn that it is alright if we make mistakes as long as we have tried our best! Let's keep up the hard work and great attitude towards our learning year 5!!
Next week we will be starting our normal lessons and getting stuck into our Learning Journey, 'The Railway Children', which I am excited about and I hope the children are too. Don't forget our short homework task that was set on Friday for Tuesday as it will help us with creating our posters about the Railways and Canals!
Keep up the hard work!!

The children learnt why the land around the Nile was so good for farming, as well as the many uses of the crops that were grown and taken from the river. As a class, we...
