A big well done to class 7 this week. It’s been a tough one tip-toeing around school and making sure we’re sensible for the year 6s doing the SATS! Everyone deserves a big pat on the back.
I’m sure you all have received the French Café letters that is set to take place at the end of term, we’re all super excited about it. In fact, this week, we’ve been practising our French ready. To all the children who came up to me at the end of the day to show me how much French they remembered, a big high five! Please ensure they are brought into class/the office ASAP so seats can be allocated.
In maths this week, our lovely year 4s have taken their first official multiplication practise check! Although I think our nerves got the better of us sometimes, we did really well for a first go. We will practise as much as possible in school but please make sure we are practising at home too, without counting the times-tables on our fingers! Other than that, in year 4, we are coming along leaps and bounds with our decimals work.
This week in science, we learned about the lightbulb and who really invented it. We had a lovely debate about who should actually get the credit for its invention, and then designed our very own classroom with a twist… Lightbulbs had never been invented. Well done, class 7.
Unfortunately, this week, our cricket coach cancelled on us due to the rain (but will owe us an extra session in future) so we had a fun impromptu PE lessons with lots of active games and it was the perfect opportunity to break out the parachute! So, it was all okay in the end.
Finally, in our topic work, we virtually explored the tiny island of Mont Saint-Michel and used our compasses to identify directions.
There will not be homework this week until Monday, but children will have an extra day to hand it in. It will be due in on Friday.
Here’s to another fun week next week,
Miss. Parker 🙂
