Well done Year 6 – you have have made an amazing start to the year!! The main focus of the week has been ‘ learning to learn’ and across the curriculum we have explored the importance of having a growth mindset that we learn by making mistakes. We have explored the power of ‘Yet’ and the ‘learning pit’
Welcome back to Kingfisher Class! We have had a fantastic week and have begun learning all about our new Topic: ‘The Battle of Britain’. It was so lovely to be able to visit Seal Class (Year 6) and find out about evacuee children during the Second World War. We have also been learning about this in our English writing where we are covering the book: ‘The Lion and the Unicorn.’ In the afternoons, we have been revisiting the JONK characters – if you don’t know what they mean… ask a Kingfisher!! Next week, we are looking forward to the Battle of Britain Day (15th September) and we shall be partaking in some activities to commemorate this.
Welcome back to school! It’s been lovely to hear that Swan Class have enjoyed their summer holidays (which have sounded very busy!) This week we have enjoyed our week on ‘Learning to Learn’ where we have looked at the learning pit, the power of YET and also the brain! We know that mistakes are good and help to make our brains grow bigger! We have also been learning about words and practising some of our previous phonics understanding – it’s been tricky to remember! A wonderful and jam-packed week had by all… already looking forward to what next week brings!
