Week 5 - 3rd October


This week our children have taken part in a ballot, voting for a class representative for the school council. Each child who wanted to be part of the school council had to collect an election form and then to write their manifesto.  Then their pitches were made to the class, followed by voting. In M6 Christina was chosen.Well done Christina! no A huge well done, also, to all of the children who put themselves forward, you did a great job with your pitches too.frown


Tag rugby skills continue with huge enthusiasm by all the children (and their teacher) developing a range of essential skills. Next week, the children will use the skills learned, ready for team playing.


In English this week, we have begun to look at another book by Anthony Browne (proving to be a favourite author in M6) entitled King Kong. This story, originally written in 1933, has proved extremely popular with all the children. Every day the children have read pages of the story with enthusiasm and confidence. It is a book with rich and varied language which has challenged the children but, as we expect, they rise to it spectacularly. Next week news reporting begins about King Kong in New York...


Maths this week has seen the children focusing on how they apply their skills to a range of problems. Can they use mental arithmetic, knowledge of tables, rounding up or down? This encourages the children to discuss techniques and to use a range of strategies.


On Friday we combined art with history by creating Viking Comics. The front covers were designed and painted using water colours and then the children began their comic pages, full of interesting facts, presented in a novel way. They will finish this next week and share them with B6.
