This week has been ‘Aspiration’s Week’ where Parents and Carers have volunteered to come into school to talk to us about their jobs and careers. We had a visit from a prison psychologist, a scientist, a railway signaller, an occupational therapist, a Mayor and First Responder.
It was really exciting to have such a wide range of visitors.
“I enjoyed hearing about the role of the Mayor because I didn’t know that the Chain of Office was so heavy and is valued at £450,000.” Thomas
“I liked hearing about how the First Responder rescues people and saves their lives.” Ava
“I enjoyed listening to the scientist because I learnt how important plankton is in the sea.” Daniel
“Listening to Ms Segura has made me want to be a scientist because I want to learn about different things in the oceans which we can’t see or know about.” Brooke
We have started presenting our instructions which explain how to wash a hyena, sabre-tooth tiger or cave bear. We are designing and making our own books which, when completed, will go on display throughout the school.
In Maths we finished our ‘Time’ unit by completing the Hot Task which showed everyone had made progress in their ability to tell the time accurately. Keep on wearing your watches children and keep up practising telling the time!
Agnes is our ‘Champion of the Week’ for her continuous hard work in English, particularly reading. She made astounding progress in a recent reading comprehension test, well done Agnes!
