The students had been learning about celebrations from around the world and they showcased this learning by throwing the ultimate party! Traditional games and activities from different festivals took centre stage and students, staff and parents all had a great time.
The students in Year 2 celebrated the completion of ‘Hooray! Let’s go on Holiday’ by visiting Kidzmondo. There the students ‘flew’ aeroplanes, visiting countries around the world and had a great time solving problems and collaborating with their classmates. Year 2MA ended the week with a fun-filled assembly celebrating all their learning from the term. This assembly included drama, dance, singing and even the whole school learning greetings in different languages!
Footprints in the Past is a longer topic, so the students will continue to learn about the dinosaurs and prehistoric times after the half term. This week the students carried out experiments to explain why large herbivore dinosaurs, such as the Diplodocus, swallowed stones to help digest their food.
Parents, students and teachers were treated to a whistle-stop tour of the world where they learned facts about many countries. To check our parents were paying close attention they were tasked with completing a quiz.
The Year 5 Exit Point was a very messy affair! Linked to the IPC topic of ‘Making New Materials’, students taught their parents how to make new materials – in this case, slime, playdough and rubber.
As part of their learning ‘AD 900’ the students shared what they had learned about Bagdhad during this time period. Students, staff and parents were amazed to discover that Bagdhad was the centre of innovation, scientific and mathematic discovery.
As well as showcasing the learning taking place across the schools, Exit Point events help develop our students’ ability to communicate their ideas, collaborate with others and respond to questions with confidence. Thanks to all that attended this week, I hope to see even more parents at our next week of Exit Points.
Have a wonderful half term break and we look forward to welcoming you back to school on Sunday, 27 October.
