We are looking forward to the Moon Lantern Assembly on Friday and celebrating this cultural event with a Shared Lunch afterwards.
Once again we are asking for your kind support in providing your child with a plate of food to share on the day and encourage it to be a savoury option. If you would prefer to send a sweet dish please feel free to do so.
In the interests of the environment and reducing waste, we are also encouraging students to bring their own plate, knife, spoon and fork from home, rather than use disposable plastics. These items will be rinsed by your child and sent home at the end of the day. Please name items if possible.
This morning we began our Made in the Image of God ‘Being Sexual’ unit. Girls from 5HN, DP, PP and CM worked with Mrs Higgs and Mrs Pinneri, whilst Mr Murray and Mr Pearce worked with the boys. The outline of what will be covered over the next two double lessons/weeks is written below and today we began with a focus on puberty. In the interests of those students who are not participating, we will leave the details of the session out, but encourage you to talk with your child about their learning in this area at home.
After recess, both classes continued to work on their Literacy comprehension task based on Shaun Tan’s text called ‘The Lost Thing’. The questions that have been devised get progressively more complex, leading the students from finding literal information to using more inferential and evaluative thinking to generate their responses.
Once complete, students then could choose a creative writing prompt to explore from the list above.
In the last session of the day, students separated into their ‘Job Role Groups’ involved in our ‘Photo Plus’ Photography Company. (Details of this session will be posted tomorrow).
Each group was given a brief as to the first tasks that they needed to work on, with the ‘Bloggers’ working to document the learning in their own way. This team will be creating their own page linked to the home page of this site in which they will publish the weekly goings on within the company. Be sure to check it out tomorrow when it will hopefully be published…
