When two tribes go to Woore...

One of the highlights of our week was Forest School.  This week Mrs Booth had prepared for combat as the Year 5s took on the Year 6s in some trench building.  The children had a fantastic time stuffing sacks with hay, making their bases and, inevitably, attacking the opposition!  Thank you Mrs Booth.

In English, we have been imagining what it would be like for a young soldier, in a real combat situation.  We used the video, 'Germans in the woods'  to help us plan our writing, you can find it here:

We had some excellent responses which were both mature and exciting to read.  I was very proud of what the children achieved.

In Maths we have been revising written methods for subtraction and addition.  The children remembered well and I am happy to move on to multiplication and division in the coming weeks.  You can find out how we tackle addition and subtraction here:

We have been very lucky to have Mr Felton join us in class this week.  He is a student from Chester University and will be with us until Christmas.  He already feels like part of the class and the school, thanks to the welcome from the children.

Lastly, well done to the netball team for their efforts at MDJS on Thursday.  They played so well in all three matches, but the proudest moment for Mrs McBride and myself was the comment from the umpire who told us how our children had been helping their opposition, giving advice and encouraging them (don't worry  - we won easily!)
