Hello from Lexie and Micah - 10 January 2020
Hola from Lexie and Micah!
Tuesday was the first day at school for 2020. In the morning, we started with English and started reading our new book, The Hero Twins: Against the Lords of Death, which is based on a Mayan Myth. After break time, we did Maths where Year 6 finished their last session on Fractions and Year 5 started shape. In the afternoon, we were learning about the Mayans in our new theme, ‘Scrumdiddlyupmtious! Where are going to be Historians for the next 6 weeks.
On Wednesday, We started Spanish using our new website Language Angels. In the afternoon, we were learning about the pollination process in plants during Science.
On Thursday, in the morning, we completed art work based on our Caring Values. We worked really hard in groups to think carefully about what we could represent our values with – we are really proud of how they turned out. In the afternoon, we had Family Time where we enjoyed starting our new activities.
Today, we began our new reading buddy system. We have all been paired up with a younger member of the school community and every Friday we will get together for ten minutes to read to each other. We really enjoyed doing this today and we have suggested ways to make it even better next week.
Manakin has learnt how to write this week!
