Three weeks in, and I have been very pleased by the standard of learning achieved in class and for home-learning tasks.
We have started our new text 'Wind in the Willows' and the children have investigated the language and settings used in the story and used inference to describe a character's feelings. Next week we'll find out more about Mr Toad and his extraordinary (mis)adventures!
Year 5 have consolidated their understanding of formal written methods for multiplication and Year 6 continue with their learning linked to fractions.
We've had a couple of good sessions linked to rivers around the world and the children have investigated their features, including the source of the river and used atlases to identify the countries these mighty rivers (like the Nile) flow through.
The children enjoyed learning about caves and the formation of stalactites and stalagmites - we actually used role play to explain the process! (Aiden was excellent as a mineral!!)
And finally, a big 'well done' to everyone who participated in the cross country event on Thursday afternoon. Everyone made it round the course and no one gave up!! Superb to see.
Enjoy your weekend, don't forget it's parents evening next week!
Mr Ramsden and Mr Bowles.
