Assessment week has meant that the children spent a chunk of the week completing the Autumn Term test in reading, mathematics, grammar and spelling. The children tried their very best and as a result achieved pleasing scores. The tests have help me to identify where the children need to focus their energies if they are to continue to make progress with their work.
Away from tests the children produced neat versions of their poetry which will be used as part of the class display. Some even had time to record their poems and I have placed these recordings below.
Science lessons proved to be great fun as the children set up a demonstration of the water cycle. They used compost and plastic beakers with film over the top to create sealed environments. Inside they placed cress seeds. After only a few days the seeds had germinated and the children were able to identify how water was being used and reused inside their beakers. This then led to them creating posters of the water cycle.
Our attendance was a disappointing 93.5%
Our composers of the week were Ava and Liam for their independent poetry skills.
