Today Mr Turner enjoyed his morning in various different classrooms seeing what the children were learning about! There were a wide variety of teaching and learning activities taking place. From Year 5 maths where the children were independently working on reasoning problems involving perimeter to Year 4 where they were studying different texts for adjectives and figurative language in preparation for writing their own setting of a scene!
It was lovely to see so many independent, confident and hardworking children clearly enjoying their learning.
In Year 3, Mr Turner walked in as Mrs Young was reading a letter from a man who was proposing to build a pickle onion factory in the place of where we have our amazing Forest School! All the children in Year 3 were not happy about that! They were tasked with the job of thinking of positive and negative reasons to why there should/should not be a pickled onion factory on our grounds!
Below is some of the work that Year 3 produced in preparation for writing their own persuasive letter to the owner of the company! Well done to all the children this morning with all the work going on! Mr Turner was impressed!
