Gods, Staying Safe and Totally Mental Maths!
Date: 6th Oct 2017 @ 2:42pm
I seem to say this every week, but this one has been especially busy! On Tuesday Miss Kemp and the Year 6s went to Shawbury for the Safety Scene day. I know there were a few worried faces beforehand, but everyone came back to school buzzing with stories, experiences and even a few freebies (always good to get freebies!).
Whilst Year 6 were away, Years 4 and 5 got to grips with some Egyptian Gods! We had a great day producing some large scale paintings to be displayed in the classroom. We even found time to paint ourselves as Pharaohs. And very grand we looked too!
We continued with topic work on Wednesday. This time we focused on translating hieroglyphics and decoding Egyptian texts. We also fitted some Egyptian maths.
In Maths this week, we have been focused on using mental skills to solve answers. It has been great to see their confidence grow as the week has been great - today's test showed that, and with practice it will only continue.
In English we have been studying The Promise by Nicola Davies and Laura Carlin. This has sparked some wonderful description, and the children have worked hard to develop their vocabulary and select words with care. We'll be returning to this wonderful book after next week's David Walliams work.
Thank you to those who came to Wednesday's Big Read, and also to those of you supporting the children at home with their reading. I know it is sometimes hard to find the time - we are all so busy - but it really makes a difference. Also, don't forget to read to your children as well - Class 3 love a story still!
