P4C

This week for our P4C (Philosophy for Children) session, we watched a video from the website The Literacy Shed. We then thought of our own questions we would like to ask about the video before sharing the questions with the rest of the class. As a group, we then voted for which question we would like to explore. After choosing a question, we spent the afternoon exploring answers to the question we had voted for!

Au revoir!

Bonjour! This week in French we have been learning how to say goodbye. We explored the new vocabulary as a class and then went off into smaller groups to create our own fun role plays, whilst making sure we included saying goodbye in French in these role plays. We then presented our role plays back to the class- below are a few pictures of us presenting our role plays to the class!

SAY NO TO BULLYING!

Recently during our PSHE lessons, we have been looking at anti-bullying. This week we watched videos linked to anti-bullying which led to a discussion about bullying; what bullying consists of and what we can do to prevent bullying from taking place. We then worked independently to create our own anti-bullying posters. Here are some examples of our creative anti-bullying posters that we made in class!

3,4,3,4 Poems

LO: To memorise the plot of a story through a 3,4,3,4 poem.

To help memorise the plot of Stone Girl Bone Girl, the class was split up into groups and
given the task of creating a 3,4,3,4 poem which told their section of story. Each group
then performed their poem to the class whereby they were evaluated on what went well
and given a next step. Here is the poem we created as a class.

Here is our class poem:

A seaside town,
Lived an inquisitive girl,
Mary loved Pepper,
Pepper told a tale.


Mary sees curiosity!
Shining like the Sun.
Thinks it’s treasure,
Mary dreams about it.


Supportive as ever,
Pepper encourages his daughter.
He gets weaker,
Mary is very alone.


Winter to Summer,
Mary’s mother became poor.
Sells her curiosities
The people loved them.


Mary noticed something!
She removed the sand…
It was boney!
Their lives changed forever.

Chats with Sister Chris- Job Class

We were very lucky to have a special visitor to Job class today. Sister Chris! 🙂 She spoke to us about Ramadan and Eid, about the differences we have in our community and how important it is to be friendly to everyone. She encouraged us to accept any offers of food they may get from our neighbours during Eid and also told us that although sometimes old people say not nice things about people who are different to them that it is very important to make our own minds up because most of the time, people are kind. She also explained what a community is and how important it is to look after people in our community. We really enjoyed it and were amazed at how difficult fasting must be for A Muslim during Ramadan.
