Week 5- 7th October 2019
In PE we have been having great fun with speed stacking. This helps us with our concentration and co-ordination. After taking each other on, we then worked together as a team to build this huge tower! We were very proud of ourselves and had a great time!
October is black history month and this week we have done some activities which were linked to this. On Tuesday we had an assembly about Rosa Parks, who refused to give up her seat on the bus for a white person even though that was the rule in America at the time. This act contributed to the rules being changed. We also learned about Ruby Bridges who was the first black child to go to a white school after desegregation. We discussed how Ruby would have felt and wrote diary entries as if we were her. You can read some of them in the photos section. We also looked at some African art and created our own Ghanaian 'kente' patterns. The children enjoyed their 'Black History Month' learning and some important discussions were had in the class.
In maths this week we have been finding 'complements' to 10, 100 and 1000. Alex G, Ewan, Ethan and Rebecca were challenged to find different ways to make 1000 only using given numbers. They worked together as a team and showed great resilience despite finding the question challenging. Eventually, their hard work paid off and they solved the problem which gave them a great sense of achievement. Well done to all four of you!
