Bronze Class continue to show fantastic levels of engagement with remote learning. They really enjoy responding to the daily challenges that we set for them with their morning greetings. Last week, they were set the challenge of writing their own haiku as our topic this half term is Japan. Here is one written by Penny:
Winter has come now It is very cold and dark I wish it was Spring.
In English, we have been writing our own versions of an ending to the Japanese myth ‘The Goblin of Adachigahara’. It’s a traditional tale about a cannibal goblin, believed to live in disguise as a frail, elderly woman. The children have been predicting how they think the myth will end and will be writing their own versions this week. We can’t wait to read them! In preparation for this, they have been generating vocabulary by learning about expanded noun phrases and using semi-colons to write a descriptive list.
In Maths, Miss Pais and Mr Tsappas’s groups have been calculating with fractions. Mrs Satchwell and Miss Shardlow’s group has been learning about prime, squared and cube numbers. In our topic lessons, the children created their own infographic comparing London with Tokyo. The children presented them in different ways: some created a poster by hand; others used the tools on Seesaw. In Art, the children studied some famous Japanese paintings and critiqued them. We were really impressed with the drawings and paintings they created themselves.
Well done Bronze Class: you continue to make us all very proud. Keep up the excellent work – we look forward to seeing you again on the class zoom this Wednesday.
