Manchester attacks: advice if you are upset or worried about what’s happened
The terrible events in Manchester this week have prompted some questions and concerns from our children. The website http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/40019250 has some excellent facts and advice you may want to view with your children. I led an assembly after the Westminster attack and focussed on those who ran to save and protect – doctors, nurses, police, emergency services, taxi drivers, hotel staff all offering to help at no cost. It is important that we encourage our children to find reassurance in the courage, hope and bravery we see in people of all colours, religions and races and remind them never to be afraid to enjoy themselves and live their lives to the fullest. Have a safe and happy half term.
Y4 on Safari
We had a fantastic afternoon in the sun searching for wildlife around the school field. We found spiders, woodlice, ants, beetles, ladybirds, centipedes and lots of other invertebrates as well as some frogs and a toad. We decided that our school provides amazing habitats for all sorts of creatures.
Get Set… Maths!
Today we got really active in our maths lesson as we competed in a Roman numerals relay. In teams we raced to collect our numerals before taking them back to put into numbered ordered. We all had a great lesson and discovered that Roman numerals are a lot easier to read than we first thought.
Jack and the Beanstalk
This week we have been reading Jack and the Beanstalk, the children created story maps to help re-tell the story and added speech bubbles to show what each character said. They have made magical beans with paint and glitter which grew into a giant beanstalk! In maths we have been finding out which footprint belongs to the giant and which bowls holds the most water.
