Welcome back Hawthorn Class!
Hawthorn Class have all returned from the holidays with a brilliant attitude towards their learning and have had a successful first week of term.
In English, the children have enjoyed immersing themselves into our new book ‘The Promise’ – during the week they threw themselves into a role-play activity, which helped them to understand the main characters’ motives, thoughts and feelings, to support them with writing a character description at the end of the unit.
In Maths, we have begun our fractions topic and started by exploring mixed numbers, improper fractions and equivalent fractions. The pupils have been using pictorial methods to convert mixed numbers into improper fractions and back again.
Hawthorn Class also had their first swimming lesson of the year, which they thoroughly enjoyed – these lessons will continue until the start of the summer term.
