Summer 2 -Week 2

This week we completed and published two diary entries in English. We are all exceptionally proud of their writing, and effort to complete two contrasting diary entries to show the opposing character experiences onboard the HMS Beagle. On the first entry, the children had to write using scientific language and a formal tone to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of Charles Darwin. On the second entry they became Darwin’s assistant, Syms Covington, and had to think about his manner and knowledge of the English language to produce a diary entry expressing his character.

In Maths, a group of year 6 pupils planned a lesson for the year 5 children on Wednesday, and delivered it to both classes on Thursday and Friday. The children chose an aspect of Maths which they wished they had known before entering year 6 – BIDMAS. On Wednesday, they planned a lesson through discussion and created a powerpoint, handout and worksheet to support their teaching on Thursday and Friday. After their first lesson on Thursday, they reflected on their outcome and amended their lesson ready for the next class on Friday. I was extremely proud of their achievement, they inspired the year 5 children and made their learning fun. It was a pleasure to see your children interacting with the year 5 pupils and speak confidently about Maths. They were great at explaining, questioning and making the children reflect on their gained knowledge and understanding when answering the given calculations. Well done, year 6!

It is with great pleasure that Mrs Hewitt-Best was able to witness our marvellous year 6 children deliver an amazing Maths lesson to the second group of year 5 children and award our children with the highest award at Newham Bridge Primary School. All children have been entered into the Headteacher’s Golden Book – Well Done! You have been amazing role models from planning, to delivery, to reflecting on your lesson, to marking and giving positive feedback and advice to our year 5 children. You were most definitely inspiring this week 🙂

Also this week, we have completed a project all about Sustainability. Your children have learned the importance of protecting our world for a brighter future. They have produced and presented powerpoints explaining to each other their gained knowledge and understanding from their learning. I am really impressed at their gained computer skills: using transitions between slides; importing images; adding animations to text and images; inserting additional text boxes to add further information to their slides. The main message was clear: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and where possible using Renewable Energy. The children have agreed to turn off their electrical supplies when not in use, walk/cycle more often and try to grow home produce (strawberries or currants at home).

Please follow the link on the school page to look at the photographs taken from Peat Rigg. I am sure you will agree, they have had a fabulous time exploring new sights and experiencing new activities. A huge congratulations to everyone who participated in the residential!

A huge Happy Birthday to Roman and Bethany 🙂 We would like to wish you a lovely time celebrating with family and friends at the weekend. I am sure you will have lots to exciting news to tell them from Peat Rigg too!
