What a fantastic week we have all had.
We have deepened our knowledge about our poem, The Highwayman, in literacy. Last step this week was to begin writing the poem as a story, but from the point of view of one of the characters in it. Which to be fair is quiet a tricky concept, which we aim to finish on Monday. Then we will be after finding out as much as we can about highwaymen to . . .
There have been two highlights this week.
The first obviously being world book day with the fancy dress competition, won in Peridot class by our only Smurf in the school, I saw many ‘Things’ around the school, spotted a few Wallys and played a carting game against a plumber and his brother, an our assembly was led by a representative of ‘Galactic High command’. The school was awash with colour, energy and fun. (Photos to follow)
The other was today, our visit to Appleton school along the road for our secondary taster day. I have to say the children behaved impeccably and we had nothing but compliments from all the staff who were with us.
My group were schooled in instructions first for our English, ‘How to get away with making your parents think you have done something you have not,’ was the theme. So next time you ask them to tidy their room, or have a shower you might need to check a little more closely, oh and a word of warning at the table, does your dog like vegetables? Are they getting bigger?
Next was a science, well Chemistry, lesson. We made solids from liquids, we made steal spark and magnesium flare up, all under close supervision with apropreate P.P.E. of course and a ‘POP’ test for . . . gas.
Last was a brilliant Humanaties tour, we started with evacuies, then looked after the planet on behalf of . . . . for religious studies and finaly a whistle stop tour of some of the marvels of the world in Geography, including something visable from space which one of the class worked out was 2,000,000,000 mm long!
Again, photos to follow, technical difficulties, sorry.
So until next week this is Mr. Railton and Peridot Class saying "Happy learning!"
