This term has been a great one for stories. Our ‘Talk 4 Writing’ project on The Leafy Sea Dragon produced some very imaginative writing from the children. We read ‘The Worst Witch’ together and have now made a start on ‘The BFG’. Our project on ‘Varjak Paw’, the story of the cat that must learn to fight, will continue next term. Chris has still been teaching chess. Our class chess tournaments have been pretty competitive and I’ve been pleased to see a lot of the children choosing to play chess in their own time. We’ve come a long way in our understanding of fractions, using the ‘Singapore Bar Method’ again to help us visualise them. Our PE trips saw us doing everything from basketball to cricket; a couple of really exhausting days. I have really enjoyed some of the Friday afternoon activities as well, particularly flick-book animation and origami. Again, it was nice to see so many children choosing to do these kinds of activities in their own spare time. Finally, I’d like to thank all the parents for always being so friendly and supportive. I’m looking forward to next term.
