1 February 2019
After a lovely parent worship we had a leisurely stroll down to the beach. When we got there we began our session around the parachute and discussed February being a leap year, we also found out what the plan was for today.
After that, Orca class began their maths session by practicing times tables and their newly improved catching skills. They then add three fractions with different denominators they then split off into two different groups of year 6 children and the year 4 and 5 children.
Following on from that, Orca class started their PE session and began developing passing and team work skills, with specific rules meaning that each player of the group had to pass the ball before scoring, the yellow bib team won 5-1.
After snack the science lesson began and the children carried on developing their understanding of friction and forces. The children carried out a practical test looking at the amount of friction on different surfaces and how gravity can affect it.
A warm up and a delightful lunch at the golf club set us up for our afternoon of fun! We carried on learning about a different person from the book, Boys who Dare to be Different, this week William Kamkwamba was our interesting chap, he is a fascinating person born in Malawi. After that, the orca’s began their topic lesson writing about Sutton Hoo and using previous knowledge which they have learnt in the past two topic lessons.
Finally, a well-deserved trip to the wall, where we paced out the outline of the Sutton Hoo ship, well done Orcas!
