Hopefully this interactive map that I created will give you all an idea of exactly where we are going on the island...if the attraction has registered their website with google, it will also give you a link to this where you can find out more.
The children had a visit from Claire, Becci and Lucy this morning from different churches in the Tewkesbury area to talk about the transition to secondary school. The children discussed their feelings and role played different situations to help them develop strategies to deal with problems that may occur.
It was a very positive experience where a lot of children got to ask questions and got a lot of anxieties of their chests.
Well done Elder.
Today we have worked on 2 more areas of the Isle of Wight that we will be visiting...the pre-work is almost complete! Well done on the animal fact files and the historic World War 2 links to Shanklin.
We also thought about our visit to Carisbrooke Castle today; look at Harrison's wonderful picture to show the Motte and Bailey layout which became so famous by The Normans.
This video by a student from Northern Ireland explains the concept of a Motte and Bailey castle really well:
There was some great artwork on display today as we focussed on our trip to the Isle of Wight with some perspective drawings of Osborne House, which we will visit next Tuesday afternoon.
How did your work with a vanishing point and horizon line go?
It is great to see how many of you have mastered your lines already - we need to get everyone up to this level, so if you've not memorised yours yet, please try really hard to find the time to learn them...we will be performing it before you know it.
Whilst some of the class were helping with the Y3/4 swimming gala - we had a go at doing a HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout, especially for schools, put on live through Facebook and YouTube, from Joe Wicks.
The class did really well; enjoy the video!
Well done for representing your house so well on the Y5/6 cross country event.
To start our health and well-being week we thought a lot about our emotional well-being; what makes us happy; what makes us sad; gauging our feelings.
The children had a good discussion about this and then we wrote down some of our thoughts to enable us to explain both the range and intensity of our feelings to others.
The first week is already over!
Ms. Voller has been with you quite a bit this week and I have been very thrilled to see how well you are doing with all your work on the Isle of Wight.
Next week is an exciting week with 'Health and Wellbeing Week' to look forward too.
Have a go at a homework or try to improve your learning in some way, if you can!
Enjoy the weekend.
We did a great maths investigation today - the children found it tricky to get going but were then very eager to be the first to find the guilty culprit!
This week, we have part of another sentence:
…the water just kept gushing out…
