We have had a lovely first week back at school in Ares Class this week and we have enjoyed getting back into our classroom routines and discussing all of the exciting things which we did in our holidays.

Maths

During our first maths lessons we have started looking at Roman Numerals up to 100 (C). We worked in groups to produce a poster focusing on ‘What makes a mathematician’. Some of the qualities that make a good mathematician are having a good attitude, justification and using the correct vocabulary.

“I enjoyed looking at Roman Numerals during maths because it was fun and interesting!” exclaimed Aniya.

P4C (Philosophy 4 Children)

During P4C we looked at ways of answering unusual questions such as ‘What colour is Tuesday?’.

By answering these questions we were working on our collaboration as a team and used philosophical thinking. This meant we had to work hard to produce an effective argument for our answers.

“I think the colour of Tuesday is blue, because it sounds similar to Tunaday. Tuna tins are often blue in colour, therefore I believe Tuesday is blue” explained Evan.

Drama for Writing

We have been reading a book called ‘The Boat’ to improve our dramatic writing. We selected characters and settings to describe how they changed. The class were asked to close their eyes whilst various individuals described the setting; using our imaginations we were able to go on a tour of these places.

“I liked drawing and describing the animals because they were very funny” Molly explained.

“I am excited for next week’s lesson as we are going to be acting out different sections of the book, and I love acting” Athena said excitedly!
