This week we had some slimy, scaly visitors...
Phew! What a half-term! And what a proud teacher I am! Not only was I impressed this week by the children's enthusiasm, bravery and subject knowledge during our visit from some creatures from Africa Alive, they have also, today, produced some fabulous independent pieces of writing which show off how much they have learned in our English lessons. They have quite literally worked their socks off and I am pleased with how each and every member of the class has improved. Keep up the amazing work!
You can see all the photos from our Africa Alive visit in the Photo Gallery on this website and I'm sure your ears have been talked off by the children about it! After the workshop, we wrote a recount of our experience and the children were working with such focus and drive that you could have heard a pin drop! That shows me how much they wanted to focus on writing all they knew and my goodness did they know a lot!
We have now finished learning about fractions, but I will continue to put these in our 10 in 10s to keep our brains thinking about them! We are learning about measurement (length) after half-term. I wonder if there are things you can measure at home in the holidays?
Thank you to all those I spoke to at Parent's Evening, your children are wonderful and I look forward to the next term and a half we have left and the further progress they will make.
Have a great and restful half-term.
