Mrs Rosevear and I have been so pleased with the start to 2018 that Churchill Class have made. We have had seven days of hard work and enjoyment of our new topics. Particular highlights are starting our ‘Rainforest’ topic, the teacher’s personal favourite. We used atlases to identify the regions of the world where rainforests are found whilst also discussing; the equator, tropics, latitude and longitude, the continents and oceans. Everyone took great care to present their work neatly when transferring information from the atlases to our own world maps. Not an easy skill!
Mrs R has donned her football coaching hat and two enjoyable, if slightly chilly, sessions have taken place on the playground already. We’re hoping the FA don’t spot her potential and tempt her with a million pound pay-packet.
Across school, we have started a new spelling scheme and have all adapted quickly to the short, sharp daily activities and are enjoying our trips to space and Planet Spelling.
In English, Mr Hall has been working on Hamlet with all of Year 6 and several drama sessions have taken place. Make sure you ask your child about the storyline as they are becoming mini experts!
The key skills for this week will be posted shortly. Don’t forget to continue using your revision guides.
