Week beginning 6th February 2017.

One of those "event" weeks, this week, though more as a result of added content than changed content. Monday sees seventeen members of the class deliver collective worship to the school. With forgiveness as the theme this term, they will tell the public story of Martin Luther King via a Powerpoint presentation, the text of which they have researched and written themselves. Tuesday will see the eight elected Digital Literacy Ambassadors deliver a couple of assemblies and help with "Safer Internet Day" events in class. On Wednesday afternoon, we are welcoming parents in "behind the curtain": this is an opportunity for mums and dads to come and spend an hour in the classroom with the class. In terms of class work, this week's Maths centres around finding fractions of amounts and addition, subtraction and multiplication of fractions whilst English will see a bit of (in role) rules-writing, a puzzle task followed by a bit of semaphore flag-waving and, if we get there, the start of the exploration of the island. History moves on to look at the diverse working lives of the children of the Victorian poor, French will revise those planets and Geography will extend knowledge of the world's natural resources. Interspersed will be ongoing spelling practice and more access to Terragen and TT programs. There being a break next week, there will be NO homework set this coming Friday, as agreed a few years ago when we responded to parental questionnaires which delivered the verdict that homework should not be set during holidays...just in case you were wondering...Hopefully everyone will have a strong week and I look forward to seeing some of you next Wednesday.
