Week 5 Highlights 6.12.19

This week children have had the opportunity to look at the mark scheme for the assessments which took place. From this, they have set their own targets and identified the areas of their learning which can be improved. It has been a pleasure to watch the children reflect and take ownership of their learning.

Our favourite moments…

v  In English this week, we continued to learn about poetry. We compared and contrasted a range of poems to High Flight and had to justify which poetic key features had been used. During Thursday’s lesson, we chose whether we wanted to write a narrative or a sonnet. We enjoyed being given the freedom to choose the writing task we completed!

v  In Maths, we have been learning about multiplication. This week we have learned about common factors and prime numbers.

v  In History this week, we learned about the experience of evacuees. Mrs Scott, who teaches in Reception, allowed us to listen to her grandmother’s story of when she was evacuated at the age of 13. We spent one lesson watching a series of videos and making notes. This was to prepare us to write a letter as an evacuee. Hearing about someone’s first-hand experience really helped to bring WW2 to life. A huge thank you to Mrs Scott and her wonderful grandma!

Remember…

1. Homework has been set and is due on Wednesday’s. (Remember to do the spelling sentences linking to adverbs of possibility e.g. certainly etc.)

2. Please ensure your child brings their planner on Monday as their weekly spelling test will be recorded in there.

3. VE Day (Thursday 12th December 2019 at 2:30pm) letters have gone out. Please return the slips if you are able to attend. Children are to come to school in anything linking to WW2. They could come as a land girl, an evacuee or as a soldier- these are just some ideas.

- Girl’s costumes must include either a skirt or a dress.

- If your child is coming as a soldier, no guns are allowed.

Have a great weekend,

Mrs Webley and Miss Begum
