Walk the dinosaur!

This week was most unusual in that nothing much unusual was happening! Yes, we had Stoke City come in on Thursday and give an exciting assembly; and, yes, we had freshly made soup in Forest School on Tuesday but apart from that it was, well, normal.
In English we have been finishing our script writing lessons (something we used to great effect in Friday's computing lesson), and we have shown good understanding of how writers must use other skills to show their characters compared to writing a story. In Maths, we built on our multiplication skills - having a go at word problems, which were very tricky!
In Topic we spent a very quick hour building up a timeline of the main events of WW2 (a quick reminder that projects are due in before the half term break). In PE, Mrs McBride led the first hockey session for those not involved in the tag rugby sessions. Finally, in Science, we looked at what scientists can learn and hypothesize, just from a footprint. We had help from the Laurasaurus, who helpfully had left a trail of prints for us to anaylse.
Back to our computing session. We looked at the possible dangers of gaming online. We used this website to help us:
And it threw up some very interesting discussion. Most of the class do game online, and most have used these games to communicate online. Some of the games we talked about were not really suitable for children, and so we are going to do a lesson on PEGI and BBFC ratings, just to give the children a better idea of why games and films are age-rated. If you have any concerns or comments about this topic, please let me know.
