The beautiful thing about learning is that it has no parameters. Everyone can teach someone something they did not know.
As I sit back to reflect on this week, I am already looking back with such fond memories of the learning that has taken place.
Part of the Literacy curriculum is to allow the class to access a range of different text types, and this week we explored free verse poetry. To link to our Space topic, the class were tasked with producing free verse poetry about the solar system. We began by generating suitable nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs to form the basic structure of our poem. We then explored poetic devices such as Similes, Personification, Alliteration, Metaphors and Onomatopoeia. The imaginative minds of Team CB are certainly something to be reckoned with as the language they generated and the vivid images they evoked in staff members minds was exceptional. Well done Team CB!
In our Maths, we continued our pursuit to fully understand decimals. We explored practically and pictorially showing decimal equivalents to a given fraction, as well as comparing and ordering decimals. This will really support us in our learning next week, as we are going to begin exploring the links between decimals and money!
This week was extra special as on Wednesday members of the class took part in a Heart start event. The purpose behind the session is to support children in knowing the protocol to take should someone be taken unwell. I must say, I was beaming from ear to ear to see how focused, engaged and observant the class were throughout the duration of the session. I know all children came away having learned a vital skill and I was so impressed with their knowledge and understanding following the session.
A fantastic week as always Evolutionary Astronauts - keep up the great work!
