Last week we welcomed two students to class two, Mrs Hilton and Mr Tucker. They will be with us for a number of weeks and we are very pleased to be able to support them on their teaching journey. They have already built a good rapport with the pupils.
On Wednesday we took part in a Moneysense workshop with the resources provided by Nat West Bank. This formed part of our enterprise and careers curriculum and was also aimed at equipping the pupils with skills for later life. The class learnt about budgeting and profit and loss as they designed a smoothie, provided costings and calculated how much to sell their smoothie for. The pupils really enjoyed working collaboratively and going to the class shop to buy their ingredients and materials.
Following on from the STEM reading challenge set in British Science Week, here are the proud recipients of their prize for going one step further and completing a book review as well. Well done everybody!
This week we will be starting some exciting creative writing based on a fantasy story about a dragon. The children are also designing and making their own dragon puppets and they are very much looking forward to it. I hope to share some of their work with you next week.
