PUPIL OF THE WEEK
Noah and Jack have received Pupil of the Week this week for their enthusiasm and commitment to singing and speaking their parts in Shakespeare Rocks!
This week we began the production of Shakespeare Rocks, and what an amazing start to the term it has been! Your child will now know their part in the performance and you may even have heard them singing the songs around the house – we are very proud of their enthusiasm and commitment so far 🙂 During Maths, we began looking at our future and what a salary, monthly wage and tax means for them in different job roles. It has been great seeing the children applying a variety of mathematical skills in real-life contexts, we will continue to develop their understanding of wages by looking at hourly wages then we will be exploring regular monthly bills.
Our new topic this term is Human Rights Heroes. We began the topic by researching four inspirational people in our history – can you name them and identify their impact on Human Rights?
Your child choose one of these people as their focus to discover more information about their impact in their country and the wider world, before presenting this new gained knowledge and understanding to the class. Ask your child who was their inspiration.
On Thursday, we took part in a whole school science investigation linked to air pressure, air resistance and gravity. Please ask your child about their outcome, I am sure they will want to challenge you and your family at home – everyone loves a competition!
On the Homework page more information about the investigation and other amazing science investigations can be found, please take a look; we are sure you will enjoy getting creative with science at home 🙂
This term we are learning cricket in PE, it is essential we revisit these skills as some of the children have been chosen to represent the school in a local cricket tournament. If your child has brought home a consent form, please return it on Monday.
