We had a real treat in Nightingale class today with Leo and Daisy, two Chinese teachers who came to our class to teach us about China. They showed us where their school was. The have 600 teachers in their school! Leo then showed us some of his skills in writing Chinese calligraphy. It was lovely to see the children so engaged and excited. It was especially lovely to see Ethan and Joseph shine in this sessions. They became teachers too, helping us with the pronunciation of some of the words and explaining what the characters meant.
Well done to Matthew, Tia and Oscar for your fantastic William Morris printing. You created fantastic wallpaper designs. Lovely work:
We had a lot of fun finding out about the artist and industrialist William Morris. We made printing tiles and then printed our own William Morris wallpaper.
We had a go at making circuits today as a part of our history / science lessons. We found out a little about Thomas Edison and how he invented the light bulb. We then had a go at making our own circuits. The children found it difficult at first, but stuck at it and created some great circuits.
As a part of our Victorian topic, we wanted to find out more about what life was like in a Victorian workhouse. We all had a go at cooking and tasting gruel. The children had mixed responses to our cooking this week.
Elijah was amazing in our P.E. lesson this week. He faced his fears and jumped off the high box. It was lovely to see the sense of achievement he had from overcoming his fears. Fantastic work, Elijah!
Well done to Bethan and Libby who have been very reflective in our work this week. They completed interesting and thoughtful ideas on their New Year resolutions.
The best thing Libby mentioned from last year was going to Spain. She said that she can’t wait to go to the beach and have an ice cream this year. Her irresolution is to write six pages in her book and she wants to try to tidy her bedroom more. Great work Libby!
Bethan had a fond memory of swimming on her birthday. One of the best parts of last year for her was seeing her Papa and Nan. Her goals are to keep her desk tidy and read more books and her thing to try really hard at is to help her mum and dad.
What a pair of reflective girls. Great work!
