We had our second tag rugby lesson today...we are progressing through passing technique and try scoring at the moment.
What a fab week we have had, not only have we had the fantastic evacuee trip, but we have also learnt about the structure of warning stories; discussed genesis, science and creation; some of us have been swimming; got to grips with algebraic equations and many more things.
Today we found out the result of the house captain elections, congratulations to the winners - Ava, Oscar, Elishia, Luke, Rachel, Alex, Molly and Max. Enjoy your new role and wear your badge with pride.
There were a fair few disappointed faces after the results - I completely sympathise with you and please be reassured that your efforts were all valued by the staff who saw you deliver the speeches. I also said to the class today how proud I was with their reaction (in a bizarre way), that they cared so much about the result - it shows that they want to do well, that they are proud of the school and their position within it and that they want a leadership role within the school. There will be more opportunities coming your way from next week...
Enjoy your weekend: relax and come back with a positive attitude and ready for lots more learning in school from Monday!
We thought a bit more about character emotion in our English work today...we role played phone conversations that the characters might have after a scary experience in a story, and then we created a graph to look at character emotions...
We are learning about the structure of 'Warning Stories' and we are also encouraging each other to choose ambitious vocabulary to excite the reader.
We came up with some actions for a couple of paragraphs that were particularly descriptive in the story called 'The Caravan'.
Today we also wrote a short blurb for this story.
You could also have another go at writing a blurb on here if you like...
We start this year with:
…so, what lies ahead of…
Things to consider:
When was this happening?
Is this referring to a time, place or activity?
Good punctuation with full stops and capital letters.
POST YOUR WRITING HERE AND I WILL MAKE SURE IT GETS ON 100WC.NET
We looked at 'unknown quantities' today and applied some algebraic expressions to our learning.
We will look at multiplying and dividing later in the week.
With the Tour of Britain coming to Gloucestershire this weekend, there is something quite big happening locally this weekend!
I hope you have enjoyed the first week; you have covered a lot already... (Just look at the amount of blog posts there are...and I haven't even covered everything!)
I've sent you home with your speeches that you drafted this week - if you want to do anymore work on them before Wednesday, then you certainly can!
I am looking forward to the rest of the year with you all!
If you want to share what you get up to over the weekend on here, then please do!
Today we 'messed around' with Pascal's Triangle - we explored it in lots of different ways and then experimented with our own blank ones.
We saw lots of different patterns, some of them were very complex!
Well done on a superb start to your Mathematics for the year! ...always remember, mistakes help your brain grow!
It is great to see so much interest in our World War 2 topic...here are some photos of just some of the things that have been made at home...
