We are feeling very festive today in our jumpers and very content after our Christmas dinner!
It has seemed like a long term but we can see the finishing line. One more week, but at least it will be filled with crafts, parties and a film afternoon on Friday – we can do it!
In our learning this week we have still been working extremely hard
and have written some amazing balanced arguments in English. To link in with our ‘A is for activist’ book we have been writing a balanced argument about something we feel strongly about. We have had debates about the pros and cons of zoos, live spectators being allowed back for sports and even if Santa should be following the rules and regulations of Covid. Again, we have taken it fairly slowly and really ensured the quality of our work is maintained throughout and thought about the fable of the hare and the tortoise: slow and steady wins the race.
In maths we have really enjoyed our week of position and direction; looking at quadrants, translations and reflections. We even applied this to a festive co-ordinate dot to dot picture today! Brilliant work this week and we have really grasped the four quadrants, the order of the co-ordinates and how we use negative numbers in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th quadrant!
Across the curriculum the Eagles enjoyed looking at the nativity on Tuesday with Mrs Eaton and what modern day gifts would be appropriate from the wise men if the nativity was set in 2020 – possibly lots of hand sanitiser and face masks! In Topic we continued looking at the Suffragettes and applied their motto of ‘deeds not words’ to what they would protest – some really thoughtful ideas: we might have some activists in a decade or so!
Have a lovely weekend and we will see you on Monday – only 13 more sleeps until Christmas!
