Our overarching question
Does a path have to be straight and is it okay to be lost?
Encouraging the children to use our Mindfulness area of the classroom, if they need some quiet time or to simple stop and think
As part of the introductions into the Diversity class, the class expressed their wishes on what they could do to help the class family work together and achieve well. I particularly liked the thought of recognising each others feelings.
In addition to our PE lessons, we have been using the Adventure Playground regularly. We have been climbing, balancing and sliding. The smiles are evident and it is brilliant to help improve our fitness.
DT prototypes in action
Part of our DT lesson was to use our designs to create a prototype. Using straws, we made the frame structure. At the end of the lesson, we recapped about 'triangulation' and understood the need for triangles to enhance the strength of the frame.
Saying Thank you
To say a huge thank you to our parents and carers for helping us over Lockdown, the children made a lovely thank you card each. The care and thought that went into this was just fantastic!
DT Taboo game
To rehearse using vocabulary linked to DT, the children played 'Taboo'. They were brilliant at avoiding saying the tool and described them confidently.
Football - dribbling with control
The children thought back to dribbling in Year 3 and were very quick to recognise that they didn't have much control. They explained that the ball would go in front of them too far rather than being close to their foot. Already the progress is clear.
Value of numbers recap
The children worked hard to record the underlined digits when recapping the value of numbers.
