We have had such a busy week; Highlight of the week - Road Safety Talk from Gist Lorries. Finding out amazing facts about the lorries, like single lorry can weigh up to 44 tonnes when fully loaded. That would be the same weight as 76 cows - wow! Children were allowed to climb into the driver's cab, and even heard the horn.... it was really loud!
In Science, the children were investigating materials which would make good electrical insulators and those which are conductors. For Geography/History - the children were discovering how a worldwide food transporting industry began as a small plant business in Spalding and developed into importing bananas from the Windward Islands in the Caribbean to the U.K. in 1953. Children plotted the journey the ships make.
Most of our Year 6 children have been busy with Bike-ability Training this week learning how to be safe on the road...even in the rain!
We have had a busy start to this term. In Numeracy, our Year 5 children have been consolidating how to use formal written methods for dividing. Our Year 6 children have found out how to do long division.
For Literacy, children have been working hard to make improvements in their writing. Using Shakesperian language to write a speech for Prospero, a character in The Tempest.
For P.E. this week, in theme with Shakespeare, the children created dance sequences to the music of Westside Story, a modern adaptation of Romeo and Juliet.
In Science, the children have been trying to work out what symbols are used to draw electrical circuits and in French, we have been learning words for members of 'ma famille'.
For Topic and Geography, we have been using co-ordinates to find countries that food is exported from and imported to UK.
