First Week Highlights 2020

A few nice things from this school week.

We were doing some character description in our writing today. We watched The OceanMaker, which is a great video and the pupils wrote short pieces of text focusing on describing Katrina. They produced some great work.

Jonah came up with:

Katrina was gently holding her big wound. Glancing at her bloody hand, washing all the blood away with her painful tears.

We have been working on the grid method of multiplication I challenged some of the children to make something to teach younger children about this. Heather & Rhea made this video.

I hope there will be some more videos next week.

We have a new pupil, Kaitlyn, who is setting in well and working hard: Welcome to the Biggies Kaitlyn.

We had a visit from a Pedagogy teacher Mr Dorman today he lead the class in some Number Talks, the pupils worked hard, behaved perfectly and enjoyed the lesson. We look forward to Mr Dorman coming in over the next few weeks to help with our maths lesson.

I posted earlier about:

Finally we have been trying Minecraft Education Edition to support our maths, here is some Minecraft Multiplication Visualisation!
