On Monday in Numeracy we started multiplying fractions. On Tuesday in Theme we made some pictures using a blotted line technique and they were good . On Wednesday in Literacy we did some Freeze frames of Street Child. On Thursday in the afternoon we had a visit from Reverend Martin and he came and watched us do some R.E. Finally on Friday in the afternoon we planned some work for Advent.
This week has been Anti-Bullying week, but we have been learning about Celebrating Differences and that everyone is unique.
To start the week off in Eagles Class, we learned about disabilities and how even if a person has Down Syndrome, Autism or another disability are valuable people in the world. Yes they might look a little different or act in a certain way but they are different and different is good.
On Tuesday Mrs Barton came in to talk to us about Autism and told us that people with autism may sometimes be a bit sensitive or behave a bit different but these things don't matter because Autistic people have strengths such as remembering interesting facts like all the capital cities in the world or much more, they also think diverse so if they are in a situation they could solve the situation easily.
With Mrs Melton we all watched a video on what happens when a model goes for a photo shoot, the model arrived at work for the day looking beautiful, even without make up and suddenly all these make up artists crowded her and put all this make-up on her. Finally they took the photos and on the photo a man\ women enlarged her eyes made her lips bigger, neck go longer and hair more wavy. We were all horrified, some of us said we felt betrayed, ashamed of society, embarrassed and that it was unreal. We wrote a pledge about something we would do to campaign.
We did some work to show at the end of the week on Friday's assembly about celebrating differences, Neve and Evie did a role play on what a person may react like when they see the image. Also everyone made acrostic poems based on certain words for eg: Diversity, Acceptance, Different, Equality, Unique, Individual and Respect
This weeek has been another busy week for everyone in Eagle's class. The children have been working hard in Numeracy and their confidence is really growing with fraction work. In Literacy they have enjoyed reading and working with the novel 'Street Child' and even had a visit from the book's main character 'Jim' who told them all about what it was like in the workhouse!!
The focus at the end of the week has been in preparation for our Remembrance service which took place today at 11 o'clock at St Mary's Church. The children created really striking watercolour paintings showing the contrast of the battlefields and the poppy as a symbol of hope. As always, they showed immense respect at the War Memorial where we observed two minutes silence, heard poems and prayers and lay down some of the children's work as a symbol of remembrance.
This week was the first week back and it was CRAZZZZY. On Monday we were off school and we all had a chill out. On Tuesday in Maths we stared with our fractions work. It started quite hard but then it got easier. On Wednesday in English we wrote our biographies.On Thursday we had RE and we started a new question which is 'Was Jesus really the Messiah? Finally on Friday in the afternoon we learnt how to use Audacity software and we really enjoyed it.
