Weekly Newsletter - Week Commencing 7th January 2019
A great first week back for Maugrims. We have started our new topic looking at Invaders and Vikings and had a theatre group in to show us Viking artefacts, tradition chainmail armour and weapons. We also took part in some drama where we acted as Viking warriors in battle and said a sad farewell to our leader in a Viking funeral.
In English we have looked at our new text Beowulf and started to identify word classes within it, as well as making some predications about what’s might happen in the story. In Maths we have continued to look at fractions and how to compare them.
We have also started our DARE programme, when Dare Officer Robinson introduced the DARE model and how we could use it to make sensible choices. We talked about some of the things we are going to learn about over the next 11 weeks and the guidelines about discussing things in class.
On Friday some of Maugrims represented school at the Young Voices event where they sang and performed beautifully.
A busy week for week 1 – Keep up the hard work Maugrims.
