This week has been an incredibly busy but incredibly fun week for Charles Darwin! It has been non stop with Christmas Enterprise, carol singing, not to mention the Maths and English we have managed to squeeze in between all the Christmas excitement!
In Maths we have continued with area and perimeter! We know now how to find the area of a compound shape and how to ensure we have drawn all the possible outcomes when asked to draw a rectangle with a certain area!
In English we have been working hard on our diary writing skills. Linking to our topic of survival, we have been imagining we are a mountain climber who is on an expedition up Mount McKinley in Alaska, when we get ourselves into some life threatening bother! We are thinking lots about how we can get both detailed description and feelings into our writing! We have been working well as pairs to improve each others writing and discussing what English tools we can use in order to enhance it!
Thank you everyone who came to support us during Christmas Enterprise this week! We have had lots of fun creating the ‘Santa Stop Here Signs’ so we were so happy that so many of them were sold! We sold a total of 41 signs which left us with a total profit of £60 to spend in class! We have begun to put together ideas on what we can spend such as new books for the class and maybe even a dragon plant! Everyone is so happy that their hard work and time has paid off!
Clumber Court Visit
Finally, we finished off our week with a visit to Clumber Court Nursing Home on Friday morning! The residents were very impressed with the children’s singing and it was great to see the children mingling and having a chat with them! They really did Carr Hill proud, making the residents week by introducing themselves, asking them about their lives and what they wanted for Christmas! It was a lovely morning and I was so proud at how amazing they were!
