We have had a busy start to the term in P4S. In Maths, we have been honing our skills in estimation, rounding, multiplication and exploring the delights of function machines. After a “playtastic” block of learning about the features of playscript, we are reading a number of short stories and focusing on characterisation, setting and plot devices. Skills applied in our own amazing Hallowe’en writing.
We have evaluated the skills developed in our amazing Isle of Izcalm context, which focused on citizenship, what makes a good citizen, and the skills required to make decisions fairly in a community. We achieved this through drama, becoming a very special community on the imaginary Isle of Izcalm. Our evaluations highlighted improvements in our abilities to communicate with others, to discuss and to debate issues respectfully and in teamwork, problem solving and , of course, in dramatic characterisation!
We have launched our new context which, through a piece of imaginative extended writing on giving to others and our role in running this year’s Christmas post, will also support our understanding of those values we identified as being so important to us as developing global citizens!
Throughout our busy routines, we also find time to enjoy our shared love of reading and to share our “top tips” for a “good read”.
