Thank you to the School Sports Partnership for delivering our stay active sessions last Wednesday. We looked at both handball and basketball, learning the skills of both, before applying our skills of basketball into game scenarios. We certainly enjoyed being physically fit for life!
Today we solved an equivalent fraction puzzle! It was hard work but we showed excellent resilience.
In history today we were faced timing with the enquiry question of: how fair was the system for crime and punishment in the Roman era. In groups, we looked at a range of secondary sources (videos, photographs, games and fact files) and learnt about the strange for crime and punishment in the Roman era. After analysing each source, we decided on how fair we thought the system was before writing a conclusion. Most of us felt that the system was extremely unfair!
The children have been working incredibly hard on the research projects all about Black History Month. The children researched an inspiration person of their choice and explained why they were influential to Black History. The children chose political activities, poets, athletes, musicians and political leaders and displayed their work in a way of their choice. The children created fact files, slideshows, recorded TV reports, created art work and we even had a book made! The children then showed their homework to the rest of the class today and were incredibly proud of their achievements!
Fire engines are on the move! Class 2S have been continuing to make their fire engines, with lots of the children putting on their wheels and decorating. The last step will be to evaluate them.
Visit from Alistair Patrick- Heseton, represented team GB at the Paralympic Games.
Congratulations to Louie who placed 1st in both his individual medley and front crawl races at swimming last night! An olympian in the making!
Class 2S had so much fun learning to measure and saw wood to make fire engine toys. The next step is to attach the axel and washers to secure the wheels. Carpenters in the making!
Last week 6W took part in some team building exercises, working on our trust and communication. We were also tasked with ‘wowing’ Mrs Williams with a special talent. The children were given an array of equipment and could use whatever they wished!
