We continued Bollywood dance in PE this week, Miss Durant was super impressed with how hard we worked. Not only did we learn some more Bollywood moves, we got to try some lifts too. We also added to our bank of yoga moves to help us cool down.
For this weeks homework we are trying something a little different. We used the ‘Homeworkopoly’ board and landed on talk street. This gives the perfect opportunity for you to have a conversation, ask questions and have a really thoughtful discussion on a chosen topic. Which this week is ‘ What makes you unique?’
We have had another fun week in the Marvellous Matildas. We were visited by Bob and Becca Goody on Thursday, who introduced us to Guardians of Ancora - An i Pad app that lets you play as an avatar in the exciting adventures of the bible. We thought it was great and we are really looking forward to the next 3 instalments in the coming weeks. We also spoke about what faith means to us and discussed different answers. We decided faith means lots of different things including: Love, Trust, Peace and Hope.
We really have started off 2018 with some fantastic reading and we got 100% for the second weekend running. The hard work really is paying off, we have had lots of 85%+ in our AR tests this week and we’ve have lots of moves up to the next book band!
It’s been a super exciting first week back for The Marvellous Matildas. We spent to week investigating dragons in our new ‘Dragonology’ topic. We were super lucky enough to investigate a dragon egg nest in forest schools. We did a great job at looking for evidence, to help us determine what kind of dragon the eggs belonged to. We had to decode messages written in dragon code to figure out the messages the dragon was leaving. We also used twitter to contact dragon expert, Jimmy Firecracker. He informed us of dragon sightings which we plotted on our world map. We had so much fun and the week ended with us spotting the dragon on CCTV! It has made us all really excited to continue our new topic.
Check out what else we will be getting up to this term:
