Class 12 have settled back into school very quickly, showing their enthusiasm and willingness to learn following the summer holidays. As a new member of staff to the school, Miss Warren has been very impressed by their sensible attitudes, interesting ideas and how they have adapted to their new classroom, teachers and routines.
We started the week with a Street Dance taster session led by the Leeds Rhinos where they learned a short dance routine. The moves had fun memorable names like the penguin and the duck! The class then performed the sequence to each other in a boys versus girls dance off finishing with a funky pose. The coach Nicola was very impressed with their moves and engagement in the session.
Class 12 started to read the classic novel 'Oliver Twist' by Charles Dickens as part of our topic, The Victorians. They used drama techniques such as conscience alley and freeze frames to explore the thoughts and feelings of a range of characters at key points in the story so far.
In maths, the children have been doing lots of place value activities exploring numbers up to 1 million. They also looked at ordering dates, using dates of famous inventions from the Victorian and successfully converted these to Roman numerals too.
Next week, the children will take part in an exciting launch lesson for their history work.
