Welcome to Watson Class. The children chose Emma Watson for her work promoting education for all and her role as an ambassador for women's equality. They have had fun working on lap-tops, using search engines to find as much information as they can about her.
The children in Watson class have worked really hard this term. We have been busy using different types of technology to investigate both Emma Watson and Neil Armstrong. They used the search engine to find answers to questions that they had posed.
In Art, we created a large mask for Bridgwater Carnival. Every child contributed to painting the background and cut out several feathers for the headdress.
The children also worked very hard to design, create and evaluate their own smaller masks.
We have been learning all about the amazing life of Neil Armstrong and the event that he is famous for. The children used collage to create Apollo 11.
As a school, we have learned the importance of accepting and appreciating each other and how amazing we all are because we are all so different.
The children created odd socks to show how wonderful being different is.
In English, we have been learning the story of The Papaya that Spoke. The children rewrote the story using imaginative vocabulary and inverted commas, which we have been learning to use when a character speaks.
In Maths, the children have been honing their skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They are beginning to understand the importance of challenging themselves and the importance of finding things a little difficult to begin with and not giving in. They are enjoying the feeling of self-fulfillment when they succeed.
This week, the children have been learning about the difference between sharing and grouping in division and investigating which method suits them best.
