Chanukah!

For our RE topic we have been learning all about the Jewish religion. This week we have learnt all about Chanukah and how it is celebrated within the Jewish community. We looked at and researched the Hanukiah, dreidel and some of the delicious foods that are eaten. We talked about why and how they are used during Chanukah and how they remind Jewish people of the miracle that happened.

Outstanding Maths

Class 11 have been working excellently on subtraction of fractions. This process involves many steps: identifying improper fractions and mixed numbers, converting between the two, exchanging and simplifying whilst subtracting. It has been very challenging but the children have worked excellently — including coaching each other and verbalising their methods brilliantly.  

Digital Footprints

Class 11 have been learning about their digital footprints — focusing on  how and why different companies use our personal information. The children considered the different online services and products that they themselves use and log in to. We discussed the importance of ensuring our privacy is respected and that we remain safe online.

Children at home and in school then played a game on PowerPoint to match up if they Read more…

Children’s Mental Health Week

For children’s mental health week, we thought about how we express our feelings. The children in school made feeling scribbles, where they took their pencil for a walk and then chose colours for their feelings. If they were feeling a lot of an emotion then they coloured lots of big sections, if they were only feeling that emotion a little bit, then they coloured fewer, smaller pieces. The children who were working from home were Read more…
