Taking our learning outdoors

It was so lovely having the children back in school after the two week break. Luckily the sunshine stayed for us to enjoy so we made the most of it!

On Wednesday we went orienteering after learning about the eight compass points in Geography. On our travels we discovered lots of clues which we brought back to the classrooom to piece together. After many predictions we realised it was a picture of Queen Victoria!

We studied the picture carefully in History and created a fact file on Queen Victoria using the internet to find out more about her lifetime. We found out lots of interesting facts! Then we pieced together a timeline of her life in chronological order.

We also made use of the outdoors in Art, using natural materials to get creative!

My learner of the week this week is Ahmed. Ahmed has showed an increasing improvement in his concentrating and willingness to learn since before the break. I have been impressed with his resilience in managing his distractions so that he can achieve his best potential. Well done Ahmed, keep it up! 

Our TT Rockstar this week was Erin and our Home Reading Champion was Pippa. Well done girls! We also had lots of Lexia Legends who had earnt their certificates over the holidays. Congratulations to you all!
