We enjoyed starting our Woodlands topic this week, being ACE Readers learning all about trees from around the world. We then became ACE Scientists learning about classification and how to sort living things. In writing, we looked at ‘Wind’, a poem by Dionne Brand. This focuses on personification – please quiz your child on this!
In the coming weeks, we hope to explore our school grounds to look at the Woodlands in more depth.
This week, some of us got to meet our reception buddies and over the next couple of weeks everyone will get that opportunity. It was brilliant to receive several positive comments and emails from EYFS staff who highlighted just how amazing the Year 6 children had been in supporting their younger counterparts.
It is too difficult this week to pick out a learner of the week as all the children’s behaviour was exemplary and they all threw themselves wholeheartedly into their new learning.
