This week we have started our fortnight of drama, writing, art and cooking with Mrs Johnston. The children have been working hard and produced some excellent writing and artwork already! We are working on the dance, and it is looking good so far.
6MJ spent some time learning about democracy this week and how it affects our daily lives. We talked about at the alternatives to democracy and that brought about some excellent discussion. The children then wrote a paragraph expressing their views on democracy and, together, we created a Union Jack with our writing.
Have a lovely weekend, everyone. See you all on Monday.
On Wednesday 24 January, a parent, Dr Edwards – whose profession is a doctor – came into 6MJ classroom to talk about how she involved maths in her career. Seeing as it was “Maths Week” it was particularly relevant to learn about all she did.
The whole class was astonished at how much maths was associated with her job. It included percentages, ratio, measurements and many more. She said that sometimes she used these when she had to do ECG, heart rates and giving medicine. Everybody was answering tricky questions and learning new methods. When it came to the time to ask questions, we all asked many interesting questions. Dr Edwards answered that she used maths for a large amount of time in her day.
We were all extremely grateful that she gave her time to help us understand how your everyday job will almost always have maths involved in it. She made us all think about what job we would like when we grow older and what maths we would have to do in that occupation.
This week 6MJ continued to learn about the Mayans. They have been studying the artwork of Frederick Catherwood, paying close attention to the intricate details. They then recreated the paintings in pencil. The results were very good!
6MJ have started this week running a mile (10 times around the playground) and even over the course of 1 week, individuals have improved their stamina and fitness. It has also increased our energy for working. Their teacher is improving slowly as well!
Happy New Year!
