First week of Spring Term
Talk homework: Discuss with your parents your goals for this term. What is it that you want to achieve in the new year?
We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break, and we thank you for all your very generous (and thoughtful) gifts – Mrs Anderson and I were extremely grateful.
Although it's only been a three-day week, it's been very productive and both classes have really impressed us with their attitudes to learning (despite battling post-holiday tiredness).
In English, we've been focusing on our sentence structure, use of parenthesis and creativity (which Sonny really enjoyed); whilst in Maths, we continue to build our fluency in adding and subtracting mixed number fractions.
Year 5 spent time today developing their sketching and observational drawing skills – some found it challenging, but the progress was brilliant. We tried continuous line drawing, blind drawing and then used line and tone to draw a still-life. Core skills that will help them plan their sculptures for our upcoming school exhibition.
Hockey was a favourite, too, which Harrison and Kitty enjoyed, and will be accompanied by Netball from next week.
New spellings will be set on Monday.
Enjoy a restful weekend.
