What a bust week we have had! Monday saw a visit from S.T.F.C. where the children carried out different ball skills to improve their dribbling control and spacial awareness. On Tuesday everyone wrote their newspaper reports at the end of our English unit of work and we began to learn some basic algebra.
EUROPEAN LANGUAGES DAY
Wednesday we were off normal timetable activities to celebrate European Language Day. We focused on Russia and learnt about many aspects of life in Russia: geography of Russia (plotting cities and using atlases to identify the 14 countries which border Russia); the culture including dance, sport, famous landmarks, matryoshka dolls; the traditional tale of Baba Yaga (read by many in the class with hilarious animation in their character voices) and history - Cold War, WW2, and the story of Anastasia Romanov. We even had the opportunity to try a Russian folk dance as well as kosak dancing which you have to see to believe it: take a look at some of the children's fantastic moves!
Thursday we were back on full timetable learning more algebra, writing another Mystery Box piece of work and swimming! Friday saw Year 6 (Minotaur Class) win the attendance trophy for the first time this term - hopefully the first of many! Well done to all!
