This week was anti - bullying week and we started this off with a poem called 'The bully' during a P4C session. After reading and discussing the poem and what it meant and how it made us felt, we began to work in groups to generate a 'juicy' question to talk about in more detail. We all agreed on 'Why do we bully and do they do it for any particular reasons?' The children shared their thoughts and were very respectful of each others opinions. On Thursday we looked at a short story and answered some inference questions about it from looking at the clues provided in the text and the pictures then we sorted the good ways to deal with the situation and the bad ways. Great discussion points!

In French we learnt a new colour (grey) and in music we practised playing note B on the recorder! 😊

Athletics:
The ten children that took place representing our class/school did a fantastic job and really tried their best with a combined result for the school of 6th out of 15! Well done to all who took part.

In literacy, to prepare for our persuasive texts about deforestation we looked at the Amazon rainforest via video clips and a short powerpoint; exploring all of the wonderful life that exists in this colourful part of the world in South America. The children were then given free reign to research using IPads and books to find out more facts to support their viewpoint on this issue.

In maths we have practised the use of grid method in multiplication lots and with our final look at it with word problems on Friday we are ready to leave this and revisit next term and start division: grouping by division. On Thursday, the children who did not get a chance, this time to go to Athletics, in maths we had a puzzle morning of division dominoes, multiplication triangles and missing boxes challenges.

To end our week on anti - bullying we will design and create a poster about anti - bullying / bullying and some of us will get the opportunity to present these to a lower key stage class as role models for expected behaviour around the school.

Thank you
Mrs Townend and Mrs Spencer
