1 Hour to Build Stonehenge
Date: 20th Oct 2019 @ 8:27pm
In topic this week, we had a go at seeing how hard it would be to build a stone circle and align it with the rising sun (a torch!). Well, of course, Class 2 could do it: Class 2 are amazing! In under an hour they had built an array of stone circles from a variety of materials. Really I don't know what took those Stone Age Britons so long!
In English, we have been writing stories using 5 part story mountains. We are starting to see some lovely writing now, both in terms of handwriting but also ideas - which I am very pleased about!
In Maths, we finished looking at addition as we move towards the 1st assessment week of the year. I am pleased with the progress we are making.
In Science we explored how soil is made and observed the differences between different soil types. Thank you for the glass jars!
I was very happy with the amount of children who had gone up a book band this week. Reading at home is very important and really makes a difference - I appreciate how hard it can be to fit things like homework and reading in, so thank you for you support with this.
Speaking of homework, our projects are due in this week, so drop them off any time before we break up. I'll put a gallery on the site so that you can see what the children have achieved.
Next week is the last week of half-term, and I can see that the children (and us!) are getting tired. However, the last week is always assessment week and so we need one final push before a well deserved rest!
