Look at what we did in the Spring term

In just one week the class learned the story from A Midsummer Night's Dream and were able to create a performance. Bravo!!!

We learned to play djembe drums, improvise and make simple compositions using rhythmic patterns.

23-1-20 Power Thoughts training

We met Power Thoughts trainer, Nina Costa, who led us through some exercises to avoid negative thoughts to help us overcome challenges. It was fun and matched the messages we have learned by using Zones of Regulation.

We learned to write a formal argument. We aimed to use:

a formal tone of voice

write as a expert with technical language

3rd person

defend one point of view

6-1-20 Reading in first quadrant

We have had a very strong start top learning in 2020. From revising reading in the first quadrant, we've been able to read and write coordinates in all four quadrants and translate geometric shapes.

6-1-20 DT textiles project

Class 6 designed and made phone socks. The pupils selected, measured and cut fabric with a seam allowance, and then sewed using back stitch.

I am very proud of them: some improved their sewing skills; others who had never sewn before made enormous progress to make their product. Some even learned to sew buttons...a lifelong skill!
