This week has seen Year 4 being visited by a range of different people from different professions and careers. The children enjoyed listening to the different stories that the people had to tell. They were fascinated by how the different people journeys had taken in different directions and enjoyed finding out where their next steps could take them. Whether it was an NHS executive, a mental health nurse or a hospitality manager the children were keen to ask questions and it appeared to open the children’s eyes to a wider range of work possibilities.
When not being visited the children’s English studies continued. They began to plan the character profiles and events that will led to a story entitled, ‘Who kidnapped MR Carter.’ Mrs Goulders introductory film can been seen below. Some of the reasons and ideas that the children put forward show that they had a varied and entertaining imagination.
Mathematics continued with some angles work. The fact that it was Friday 13th seemed too good an opportunity to miss. Therefore the children were challenged to write questions which covered all of the mathematical areas that we have covered over the year. Obviously all of this questions also had to link to the number 13.
Our attendance was 99.4%.
Our composer of the week was Archie for his excellent Stone Age tools that he made as part of his topic homework.
