Our last week of Spring half term…Can you believe it?
Maths this week has seen a range of problem solving using the four operations. Alongside this, the children have been looking at measurement. This is an area to practise over the Easter break to ensure all children know equivalent measurements, for example, how many millilitres in 1.9 litres? Or How many centimetres in 2.3 meters? All good to know for a lifetime of learning.
English has seen us finalising newspaper reports and then writing them up in computing using a newspaper front cover format. The children have also written a letter as, or to, a soldier on the frontline, during WW1. These letters show just how much the children have learned about this time in history, and it reveals the children’s empathy and understanding of a time, well before they were even born. I have been greatly impressed by their attitude to learning and by their avid research skills.
Art has seen the culmination of our Pop Art topic, with many of the children’s work now on display. The work has been much admired by staff and pupils across the school and has certainly brightened up the dining area.
‘Fun in the Sun’ was definitely what year 6 had on Thursday morning, as we all trooped to Oxhey park. We split into three groups, one to play football, one for rounder’s and one on the parks play equipment. It was an absolute joy to see the children just being who they are, young, happy and excited children, enjoying being in the fresh air with their friends. What could be better? We, as teachers, had a fantastic time with them and several members of the public strolling through the park commented on how it had made their day, to see so many children having fun. They were all well behaved and a credit to our school.
EGGSTRVAGANZA! - The great Easter hunt...children collecting counters to trade for eggs, saw them all having a wonderful time being challenged to make specific collections according to year groups. This has definitely set the scene for an amazing Eastertide.
Well, here are the holidays…have a fantastic Easter – just don’t eat TOO many chocolate eggs!
See you back in school, ready and eager to learn.
