Week beginning 22nd January 2018.
It's Arts Week.
I could stop there...but I won't. Scattered through the week are fixed points of normality: grammar work, punctuation work, mental maths, worded maths problems, comprehension group tasks and so on. But there is also a football coach coming (Arts Week is themed to the forthcoming football World Cup), there is the preparation and cooking of Wiener schnitzels to be undertaken, T-shirts to be designed and decorated, tiles to be painted, tetrahedrons to be formed and stacked and, somewhere, some German-inspired artwork to be forged. There is a Brandenburg Gate to be fashioned out of...I don't know what yet. Normal service has been interrupted and, hopefully, something creative will spill out of it to be shared with parents on Friday afternoon.
Wish us luck!
