Strike up the band!
Over the past few weeks, the children have been getting to know their brass instruments. This week, they put all this practice to the test and successfully managed to learn their first short piece of music. It sounded brilliant – I think we may have some future band members on our hands!
In Maths, the children have challenged themselves with some tricky word problems. Some of which required the children to carry out several steps and operations in order to reach the answer. They have been working hard on identifying the key language in the question and understanding what it is asking them to do.
In English, the children have been independently writing their setting descriptions, making sure they have applied as many elements from their writers hints as possible. They have produced some very engaging pieces of writing as they have really thought about their language choices and the effect this will have on the reader.
Another fantastic week in Hawthorn Class!
