Year 4 Compromise

Year 4 have been using The Huge Bag of Worries as a way to explore worries and how to deal with them. Over the past two sessions, they have had to advise the character on how to deal with different worries. As a group, they came up with lots of ideas but gradually had to narrow them down to the best solution. This involved lots of discussion, collaboration and, of course, compromise. You worked so well to reach your decisions, Year 4.

Y1 & Y5 Joint Learning: Speaking & Listening

Y5 have shown a huge amount of focus this week as they prepared to read their ‘Tinga Tinga Tales’ stories to Y1. Year 5 – you have achieved a huge amount over the last 8 days. You have:

  • Written and redrafted a story in literacy based on our learning about adaptation in science.
  • Created a ‘before and after adaptation’ piece of art.
  • Manipulated a scanned image of your art – cropping it, resizing it and super-imposing it on a background in computing. You then laid text over the top of your newly created image.
  • You then rehearsed performing your story to eachother and listened to eachothers constructive criticism.
  • Then we read our stories to Y1 and helped them in their learning by asking them to predict what might happen next and asking them to identify beginning, middle and end.
  • Some of you took huge risks and read your stories out in front of whole class, and even the whole school (many of you wanted to – but there wasn’t enough time!)

Year 1, you were superb and tried really hard to listen to the stories and answer the questions put to you by year 5. Well done you! Did you enjoy year 5 visiting your class? How did you feel about answering all their questions?

Year 5 – how do you feel now we have completed our mini-project? What challenged you the most?

Year 6 – Grammar Games

Year 6 have had a great literacy lesson, playing games they have created. They spent sessions last week reflecting on grammar terminology and discussing areas they would like to explore and understand further. I was amazed to see the thought that the children had put into their games. Year 6, how do you think this has supported your learning?

Due to the rain this morning, we were unable to run outdoors so we took the opportunity to do a 15 min Zumba activity which was instructed by Miss Short. Both myself and Miss Short had a great time and felt ready for the learning ahead.

Year 6 – What are your thoughts on the Zumba this morning? Let us know your thoughts.
