One Childhood, One Chance

Weekly News! 13.10.23

Dates to remember

- A reminder that we have Parent/Teacher consultations next week (Wednesday 18th from 17:00 - 19:00 and Thursday 19th from 15:30 - 17:30).  We would encourage everyone to make an appointment.  Children are more than welcome to be a part of the conversation!

- Swimming will continue next week (Friday 20th Otober).  School will finish at normal school time.


This week, we have thoroughly enjoyed reading more of our text, Floodland.  We have gotten to the point where other tribes have desperately reached Eels' Island, searching for land.  We freeze-framed a fight scene (honestly we were acting!).  This has led to a huge, gory battle scene.  The children loved created gruesome, bloody artwork to depict the story and, from this, we wrote some fight scenes, focussing on ambitious verb and adverb choices.  



This week, we learned about prime numbers (numbers with only two factors: 1 and itself, for example 7, 13 and 19), square numbers (the result of multiplying a number by itself, like 25 (5x5)) and cube numbers (the result of multiplying a number by itself and by itself again).  As the week moved on, we used the diamond method to partition numbers ready to halve and double them.  At the end of the week, we learned written strategies to multiply by two-digit numbers.   



We were thrilled to invite Lauren Smith, Head of Science at Chatham and Clarenden Grammar School, who extended the children's understanding of evolution by leading a session on genetics.  The children created their own 'Reebops' based on the traits from their parents.
