We have a great graphic from Terry Culkin for this week’s prompt! Watch for it on Twitter!
The prompt is:
…but it is the wrong colour!…
Things to consider:
We are delighted to able to offer Elder Tree Class the opportunity to purchase their 2019 Leavers Hoodie.
The cost of the hoodie is £18; it costs an additional £2 for children's initials to be placed on the hoodie.
The hoodie can be worn instead of a school jumper after Easter and for their remaining time in Year 6.
You can get it delivered to your home address if you wish, however if you would like to avoid postage costs you can ask it to be delivered to school free-of-charge. If you would like it to be delivered to school, you must have your order in before the end of this term (Friday 5th April). The design will stay on the 'school shop' after Easter but you will need to pay for home delivery after this time.
You can make the purchase through the school shop site: https://www.shopkeepeasy.com/tirlebrook-primary-school/leavers/varsity-hoodie-jh03j-jh003-bugo
From Japanese visitors on Monday to a fantastic Easter production by the Luke Theatre Company today, with lots of other things in the middle including a class trip; sport and speaking competitions... you have had another busy and successful week. Well done 'Team Elder'!
Treat those lovely mothers on Sunday and remember the clocks go forward too!
We had a good discussion this morning about bullying and cyber bullying. We analysed their similarities and differences...
In some situations some of the children viewed cyber bullying as worse since it is very difficult to get away from it when you're in your own safe place.
We have reiterated that children need to seek adult help if they are concerned about bullying and if you are worried about cyberbullying, there are lots of good sources of advice online too:
We are investigating feelings this week. In particular, I want to know about the angry you. The prompt is:
Things to think about:
Thank you to the families that have made the contribution to the John Moore trip that will happen next Wednesday. The children will need to bring a packed lunch with them on that day (ideally in a bag that can be disposed of, so they don't have to carry it with them all day).
This week we have participated in a lot of arithmetic and SPaG material, as well as learning about the circulatory system, balanced arguments, independent story writing, algebra and Tudor architecture!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
This morning we looked at the difference between an algebraic equation and an algebraic formulae.
We then focussed on finding out how it was all pieced together using numicon and pictures...
How did you feel your understanding developed today?
This week, during our topic work we have been looking at Tudor architecture and have discussed some of the buildings around Tewkesbury too!
In Woodland Workshop this afternoon we talked about the 'wattle' (the construction of walls through weaving of sticks) and we created some pleasing structures.
Well done to all involved...
This week we have part of a strange sentence. It is:
…empty. What a surprise!…
Things to think about:
What a great day! Some of you dressed up brilliantly and all of you engaged with the activities with enthusiasm and energy.
Take a look at the world book day website if you want to be inspired to read a new book - it includes our current book Skellig under the pre-teen fiction section as well as The Truth Pixie by Matt Haig which we read earlier in the year.
There is some wonderful literature around...
Well done to Gracie, Poppy, Aoife, Silas, Amelia, Izzy and Ruben who all participated in the second round of the Tewkesbury School speaking competition.
I was so proud watching you all and you should be proud of your efforts even if you didn't make it through.
The lucky 3 (plus 1 reserve) will find out more information about the final at the end of the month, in the coming weeks.
I hope everyone else enjoyed watching them too!
