Toni from the Young Journalist Academy made a return this week, too. As a recap, the children looked through different news reports and headings, discussing their interesting features throughout. After that, they worked in groups to gather information around their chosen topic which they used to begin forming their own news report.

Week 3

This week, we had Boston United football in who taught the children all about lots of different football techniques such as dribbling a ball using the insides of our feet and how to correctly get the football from another player. As well as this, they also got to try out some timed challenges using the different techniques they learned. It was very involved and everyone had a lot of fun!

For science this week, we have been learning all about the states of solid, liquid and gas. To start with, the children had to work and discuss in groups to organize their cards, which had different objects on them, according to what they thought were solids, liquids and gases.

We had a fantastic opportunity this week to meet the wonderful Sarah Outen, an athlete who is part of Inspire plus, who spoke to us all about how important it is to not only have a healthy body, but have an equally healthy mind also.

Week 4

 

Bringing our topic of Tudors into literacy, the children worked in groups to form an argument, either for or against, the murder of King Duncan. Once they had formed all of their points, they then used these to argue against other groups in the class.

Week 6

The children have really enjoyed reading through Macbeth this term - using everything they have read about to even practise some drama! To do this, they all got in groups and then chose three scenes from Macbeth which they would then create a freeze frame for. Some of them were very convincing!

Continuing on with our drama around Macbeth, the whole class also got to role-play as if they were in a Tudor-style courtroom. In this courtroom, children had worked in groups to form an argument as to who they believe is not guilty, the witches, Macbeth, Lady Macbeth or the guards - and also, who they believe is guilty. 

They then had to express their arguments (using their best acting skills!) to the jury and the judge, who then made a decision on who they believed was truly guilty. We had some really strong arguments and everyone definitely got involved in the debate.

It was the last show for our whole-school performance of 'all for 1 2 3 4' this week, and we're all super proud of how well they did. We had some fantastic 80s outfits on top of it as well!

Week 7
The Young Journalist Academy made a return this week, working with groups of children to develop their news reports further. This week, groups had to plan and rehearse a podcast-style introduction to their report, making sure to keep it all within a 30 second time limit.
