PSHE - Being Assertive
The Dogs Trust
Sendak class had a very special visitor today. A representative from The Dogs Trust came into school and gave an assembly on the work of the trust and how the children should interact with dogs in a safe way. This was followed by a workshop during which we discussed the body language of dogs and how this helps us predict a dogs mood and behaviour.
I have a dream...
This morning was extra special for Sendak class. The year six children gave their Head Boy and Head Girl speeches. They have worked tirelessly to write and perform their speeches in the hope of being awarded the prestigious role. Despite the inevitable nerves, the children spoke with confidence and it was a pleasure hearing the fruits of their hard work. Well done children, we are extremely proud of you. The results of the vote will be announced on Monday.
Ancient Greek pottery
Sendak class harnessed their pottery skills this morning to create a pot or bowl with an Ancient Greek theme. The aim was to use intricate patterns and markings to represent an aspect of Ancient Greek life that we have explored earlier in the topic. The designs are outstanding and we can't wait to show off the painted, finished pieces later next week.
Our lovely little school had some special, feathery visitors today. The Bird Man came for his annual visit with his spectacular birds of prey. As always, it was a fantastic, informative experience for the children.
Life in Ancient Greece
The children worked in groups to explore an element of Ancient Greek life. They then presented their fact files to the rest of the class.
Our science topic for this half term is classifying animals and their habitats. We began the topic by having a think about what me already know about classifying animals and what we might like to learn about topic. After this we read through our knowledge organisers which will be our reference point as we move through the topic.
We have spent the day getting to know one another, discussing what we did in the holidays and taking in our learning environment. Our class is named after Maurice Sendak so we have also chatted about his work.
Parlez vous Francais?
Sendak class have been researching interesting facts about France. Did you know it's illegal to throw out burnt food in France? The children worked in pairs to do their research and found many interesting facts.
Team work makes the dream work
Our PSHE focus this afternoon is team work and the various aspects of a successful team. The children were tasked with a fun activity for which they had to nominate a leader to lead them to success.
Creepy Crawlie Assembly
We had some very interesting guests in assembly today. The Creepy Crawlie Roadshow paid us a visit and, as always, it was fascinating and the children were enthralled.
Sendak class enjoyed some tennis coaching this week. The children worked in pairs on various tennis skills.
