It was lovely to finally meet with many of you on Wednesday, albeit virtually, and I am looking forward to meeting more of you next week too.
Although it was a short week we've still managed to squeeze in lots of learning.
In Literacy, we have continued our work on letter writing and learned how to layout and write a more formal letter. The class are doing really well and we are starting to think about who we could write to.
As it was Remembrance Day this week, the class looked at the WW1 poem 'In Flanders Fields' by John McCrae. This is such a lovely poem and we studied the words carefully to fully understand the message behind the words. The class continued to write the poem in their jotters and add supporting artwork. They made a lovely job. I hope that you enjoyed seeing them on Seesaw as well as hearing the individual recitals of the poem from those who wished to do so. It was very powerful to hear the poem read by young voices. The class were also fantastic and very respectful during the two minute silence on Wednesday. I was very proud of them.
Also in Literacy, the class have continued to work hard on their listening and reading comprehension. We have started listening to a new online novel and the class are hooked!
In Numeracy, we have moved on from subtraction to multiplication. Our recent focus on layout and neatness is really starting in pay dividends as we move on.
In RME, we looked at Buddhist prayer wheels and in Digital Literacy, the class are continuing to improve their skill using spreadsheets.
As we are now able to take P.E indoors, can I please ask, if possible, that pupils come to school on gym days with a change of shoes suitable for use in the gym hall. As our playground can be wet and muddy in places, a change of shoes will help ensure our P.E lessons can be as safe as possible.
Finally, just a quick reminder that all homework grid activities are now available in Seesaw as individual activities. Their next homework is due in on Monday.
I hope that you all have a enjoyable and restful long weekend.
