Welcome back to all from half term. I must start by mentioning I am aware there was no MyMaths homework set over half term, this was due to myself being unable to access the website as I managed to catch the entire class’ germs and illnesses just in time for the break – I’m hoping that wasn’t planned just to get out of maths homework?!
An incredibly busy week for Class Six as a welcomed return back after the half term break. We had little time to readjust back into working mode, as Mrs. Quirk invited our class to the hall for a Curiosity assembly. Some of us were very surprised to see our own mothers in the back of the hall too – surely we knew that was happening! Clearly not.
To those parents/carers/guardians who were unable to make the assembly, please do not worry, your children are rapidly becoming Curiosity Curriculum experts and will be able to explain everything to you. Please ask them to explain our new challenge and how we may ask for your help along the way!
Curiosity Curriculum was first introduced to St.John’s last year, and was a very clear highlight to many of last year’s class. I am absolutely certain that this year will be just as enthusiastic, engaged and ultimately successful as their predecessors. In fact, those two or three children who have already submitted their first piece of work have proved this to be true – I really look forward to seeing many more pieces of work flood in over the next few weeks. The class are lucky enough to have the support, advice and expertise of Mrs. Moore – whose son, Archie, has gone down in Curiosity history (just ask her about Milo of Croton and the “ferocious” wolf rampaging through her house).
A letter to further explain the ideas and purpose of Curiosity Curriculum will be coming home at the beginning of next week, personally written and produced by John Gordon-Reid – one of the creators of the fantastic learning adventure. If you have any further questions, then please do not hesitate to contact myself, Mrs. Gillhouley or Mrs. Quirk.
In other news, the class have worked incredibly hard on their assessments this week. We only have one more to complete next week, then we can get our teeth into our new writing project: newspaper articles based on Greek myths!
Please do not forget that FILM NIGHT is this Wednesday March 1st.
All of Class Six are expected to attend to help raise funds for both the Barcelona and Home trip later this year.
Thank you again to all parents/carers/guardians for supporting your children throughout all of our exciting ventures both in and out of school. I can assure you it is much appreciated.
Now on to week two…
