Wow! What a week we've had! I have been so impressed with the enthusiasm and curiosity that the children have shown towards their learning this week. They have been so interested to find out about different civilisations from exploring the role of archaeologists and have begun to look more closely at Pompeii as a case study. They also had the opportunity to Skype with a teacher who has been involved with archaeological digs. She shared her experience of finding artefacts and learning about life 4000 years ago. The children have been asking deep, thoughtful questions about different artefacts and the past and already, they are developing a strong understanding of how we learn about civilisations from what was left behind.
This week we also began to look at multiplication and division. Their initial ideas about the two operations were good and they used different objects and pictures to explain their understanding. Below you can see a picture of the children sorting cubes into 'lots of' 3, to represent counting in threes.
Finally, we ended the week with our very own Ninja Warrior competition. Throughout the week in PE lessons, the children have been competing for a place in the finals. Today the fastest from each House ran the course once more to try to win the competition for their team. Griff and Chika represented their Houses and both did a great job! Well done!
