Wow! What an amazing and inspirational couple of days working in partnership with SKIP 2B FIT.
All children in our school showed amazing resilience and growth mindset towards improving their own personal bests. We all really enjoyed the motivational competitions between staff and children. Mr Rickett and Mathias are currently our skipping champions – we are looking forward to see if anyone can beat their scores in the future.
We had an amazing day yesterday celebrating International Women’s Day, learning about equality around the world. We have started to create posters and symbols (inspired by the book ‘Malala’s Magic Pencil’) to represent what we want in our own futures.
Learning about the history of equality has encouraged us to have discussions about what we want our world to be like and how we can inspire everyone to be be treated as equals.
We are hoping to finish our posters in the next couple of weeks and want to continue this project looking at different inspirational people throughout the year.
Task 1: In school we have begun to use an amazing website to practise our spellings. For homework can you use the website spellingframe.co.uk to practise your spellings. It allows you to break up the word, put the word back together, listen to the word being spoken and check your own spelling of the word.
Task 2: Complete to practise on Mathletics and continue to practise timestable rockstars.
Task 3: Use the self study folder on google drive to continue to close the gaps in your learning:
Thank you to everyone that came and supported our 24 runners on Saturday morning. It was such a fantastic sporting morning despite the rain and mud!! The children were amazing and represented Brooklands with true style and confidence. As individuals and as teams they did amazingly, with one of our Year 6 girls finishing 2nd out of around 150!!
Thank you again to everyone that helped and supported, especially our marshals!
Today Year 5 have been in learning zone 4 and 5 while we have been researching the possible causes of the Titanic disaster. We have presented our initial findings to the class so that we could all learn about the suspects. Ask us all about it when we get home!
