Term 6 Week 2 (17.6.22)
What a fantastic end to the week! Falcons were so excited and enthusiastic during the sports day morning. Most importantly, they tried their best during the races, continued to smile and encouraged their peers. It was great to see so many families supporting the children and making such lovely memories.
On Thursday, we welcomed Brogan Crowley. After being a talented Team GB Junior level heptathlete, Brogan unfortunately suffered an injury resulting in her being unable to feel her foot. She therefore took the next logical step of sliding head-first down an icy roller-coaster at speeds of over 80mph. Brogan shared her experiences in an assembly and Falcons were set challenges in an active session with her.
In English this week, we started reading and writing in response to our focus text The Tiger Who Came to Tea by Judith Kerr. We will continue to use this as our stimulus in English over the next three weeks. Falcons have continued to enjoy reading with their Y6 buddies twice a week – Year 6s have seen a huge difference in the children’s confidence and progress. So have we!
In Science this week we were very excited to see that some of our seeds have already started to grow. We’re still not sure what they will be but many of the children were hoping for fully grown flowers in another weeks time in order find out. We also learnt about other plants in the form of fruit and vegetables. We observed a variety of unusual fruits and described what they looked like on the outside. The children then made predictions about what they would look like on the inside. The dragon fruit, pomegranate and passion fruit were a big surprise for some! The children drew beautiful magnified, labelled pictures of their discoveries.
Although it was disappointing that Forest School and The Explorer Dome were cancelled this week, Falcons accepted that sometimes this happens and were very mature in how they reacted.
In maths next week, it’s all about fractions. There are two suggested websites on the home learning sheet to explore.
Fingers crossed we have Forest School on Wednesday afternoon - we'll keep you updated.
