Monday 26th February - Friday 1st March 2024
What a busy week! It was the beginning of our Leaf Literacy reading festival and we have enjoyed thinking lots about books. We went on a visit to the library and had a brilliant time listerning to stories as well as exploring interesting books. We finished our persuasive speeches on school litter and have now started to think about our narrative skills using a new book 'The Golden Cage'. Our maths learning has been fun as we have continued to practise our algebra skills. We recapped all of our knowledge on the heart and researched the achievements of Dr Daniel Hale Williams who was the first African-American to perform open heart surgery.
Monday 19th - Friday 23rd February 2024
it has been a brilliant first week back in Deer class. We sent a representative for each house to our annual pancake tossing assembly where Riley was victorious and earned Ash house 100 house points. Some of us were trained on how to be successful sports leaders and led multi-sports activities with the younger children in school. Dean, the sports coach, said that we were excellent! As part of finishing our Healthy Hearts unit, we created detailed diagrams of the heart and its components as well as making model hearts using salt dough.
