Welcome to Class 11- Mrs Caygill and Mrs Fahey
What we've been up to ...
Water, water everywhere!
Class 11 enjoyed their last dojo party of the year - a water extravaganza! We played a variety of team games (which one team dominated!), played 'stuck in the puddle' and ended with a mass throwing of water balloons and water at each other. It is safe to say that Mrs Fahey was the main target. We all thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon - cooling off with an ice lolly was also a highlight!
To kickstart our learning about rivers and coasts, we investigated a current global issue concerning the River Nile in Ethiopia. There has been tension between Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt about 'The Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam' which is currently being built.
We enjoyed watching a BBC News 360 degree video (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-43117710) then decided which side we wanted to be on for a class debate. Mrs Fahey was impressed by the passion and maturity the children showed during their debate, it was a pleasure to be a part of.
*The children are currently writing a summary of their main points from the debate for the website - watch this space!
As part of our multicultural week, we had a special visitor in who taught us how to play the African drums.
Romeo & Juliet - Art Day
In English, we have been reading Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet. Our Art Day was inspired by The Capulet Ball as we decided we would like to make masks to wear at it. You can see these when we show them at our class assembly.
Paired Maths- with Class 8
In our paired maths we support the Year 3 and 4 children from Class 8 with reasoning and problem solving in Maths. We have a great time being the teachers!
During our Geography topic on earthquakes and volcanoes, we looked at the day in the life of a rescue worker. We used the 5 senses to write a diary entry on this.
