Scary Mummies (not that kind!)
Date: 22nd Sep 2017 @ 3:34pm
Hello, another busy week is over and again the children have worked hard and impressed with their enthusiasm and effort. In topic we have, as you may have been told (!), been studying the mummification process. A gory and horrible topic which we thoroughly enjoyed! I hope work has started on topic homework, if not maybe next week's work on Tutankhamen will get things going!
In Maths Year 6 have been working on long division with Miss Kemp, and although there have been times when the children have got stuck, progress has been made and I am really proud of their efforts this week. Year 4 and 5 have been exploring addition methods for 4 and 5 digit numbers, and again, have been working their socks off!
In English we have been discussing whether life in a village is better than living in a city. The children spent a long time reflecting on the differences between the two, and the advantages and disadvantages. This has produced some well structured and thoughtful writing.
We have of course spent some time getting ready for this morning's Harvest Festival. I was very proud of how the children got up and read to a church full of their peers and adults. It is never easy and I thought they did an amazing job!
And lastly, we have been designing Christmas cards (I know, I know), ready for sending home should you wish to order some from Cauliflower Cards. The weeks really do fly!
Can I remind you to send the children in with coats, as it is getting colder, especially in the morning. Also, each child should have a water bottle (named) for in school. We are letting the children have access to water in the class, as it is proven to help with concentration and studying. Thank you!
