Wishing you and your families a blessed Ramadan.
Although this was only a four day week, it was crammed full of rich and varied learning experiences!
Many parents joined Year 1 as part of their IPC Exit Point. This involved using recycled materials to create junk model forms of transport – we had cars, bikes, school buses, rockets and even a hot air balloon! The students absolutely love learning alongside their parents in the classroom and they spent the rest of the day talking about how much fun they had.
Our Year 4 IPC topic this term is ‘Chocolate’ and this linked perfectly with their learning in English lessons which was centered around Roald Dahl’s much-loved ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. This week, the students took on the role of newspaper reporter and created their own article focussing on one of the characters that fell into some precarious situations. In true tabloid fashion, the students created some eye-catching headlines using puns, alliteration and sensationalism!
Inspired by last week’s educational visit, Year 6 have been busy designing and building their own working fairground models. Most impressively, a few of the students found a practical way to incorporate fidget spinners in their designs. I look forward to seeing the finished articles next week!
Finally, I am very pleased to see attendance levels have remained high this week. As mentioned last week, all classes remain fully focussed on learning until the last day of term.
Have a wonderful weekend!
