It has been a musical week… On Wednesday afternoon, the children performed ‘Make a Channel of Your Peace’ at the annual Peace Day Service in the Methodist Church. They sang beautifully together and received many compliments. We have also started to learn another song, ‘The Lord’s My Shepherd’, in preparation for our class assembly on Friday next week. Mrs Jackson-Robbins joined us for Music on Friday where the children performed rhythmic sequences to a piece of music using cups. It was tricky and required good team work and focus, but the children did extremely well and made good progress.
In English, we have written short stories in the style of Roald Dahl, and have spent time peer assessing, redrafting and editing our work this week. The aim of the story was to put children off eating too many sweets. Some of the children’s ideas were so wonderfully revolting! Next week, we will continue with the autobiography unit and they will be sharing a personal memory/ snapshot in their writing.
In Maths, the children were rounding whole numbers and decimals to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000. But when they were challenged to round numbers to the nearest 500 or million, it made them stop and think! Next week, we will focus on developing mental fluency.
We look forward to seeing you at our assembly. Have a lovely weekend!
