Last week we had elections to decide who was going to be Year 5 representive in the school council. There was 7 girls to choose from and 2 boys. Each candidate gave a speech and then there was a secret ballot.
Grace Joynes won by just 1 vote and Nischay Patel won by just 2. Therefore they are the Year...
We have had a really good start to our history topic on Romans. The children have enjoyed drawing their story maps of Claudius, the chieftain and the elephants. They were all very polite and praised my efforts when I drew an elephant. Ask them to tell you the story. We have learnt some interesting words and phrases.
In Year 3 the children are lucky enough to have a designated chess lesson! It is a great game for helping concentration and problem solving.
Today was their first lesson and they played a Pawn Game to help them understand how the pawn moves on a chess board.
It was great fun!
Today in Year 3 we had to vote in representatives for our Student Council.
Those children who wanted the role wrote a speech and spoke to the whole class (very brave!) about the the qualities of a great student councillor . They also gave some ideas about the kind of things that they would help to change.
Look on the blog...
In religion the children reflected on the wonder of Creation and how what we do to the planet affects all living things.
They read quotes from Scripture and watched a video of St Francis's Canticle of the Sun. In their books they wrote their own prayer praising God for Creation.
We used lots of strategies to partition two digit numbers in Maths. We have been identifying how many tens and units are in a number.
Have a go at this partitioning game!
