The End of Time
The penultimate full week of the academic year proved to be another amazing week. Given the wonderful warm weather we took the chance at every opportunity to take our lessons outside. In mathematics we carried out a time based orienteering activity. We even gave the children a chance to write their own orienteering course. We also used some of our attendance vouchers to have an extra PE session where the children were given equipment and encouraged to organise their own games.
Whilst in the classroom the children finished off the time unit of work and showed in the hot tasks all the skills that they had developed. They also continued their research in whales ready to write their whale information text. As part of the English work, the children received several short pieces of text which had some issues with the verb tenses that were being used. They used their editing skills to identify where mistakes had been made and suggested the corrections that were needed. Topic sessions were spent finishing the sea creatures that they had been sewing. Some children had time to create coloured sketches of some interesting and unusual sea creatures.
Our Mathematics star was Thomas for his hard working attitude
Our English star was Ava for her whales’ research.
