Well Done Parracombe - Kicking the year off in style!

Posted: Sep 17, 2021 by: Claire Strachan (claire.strachan) on: Celebrating Learning


What a busy week we have had!

Oaks Class kicked the week off with a boat trip to explore our coastline, looking for smugglers caves ready to start our new topic. We then got hands on with Maths, making place value sculptures to help us to understand how our number system works. We have written poetry, investigated colour mixing and got hooked into our class book 'The Skull Rock Mystery'.

Forests Class have done some amazing work in PSHRE, focusing on 'What makes us proud'. We looked at different aspects of ourselves and how unique we are. Celebrating ourselves can be something positive!

Our guided reading book has been a great success so far. We explored character profiles and how authors can use subtle techniques to emphasise emotion.

We are starting to tackle our sketching techniques, such as x-hatching, in preparation for our Victorian unit.

Well done to May MacKenzie and Chloe Hutchings for being awarded the Star of the Week certificates, and also those children who have been appointed as Play Leaders.

We also have a new Eco-Schools committee - they will be working hard to help us improve our school looks after the environment. They will be running an audit next week to see what we can do to improve our environmental footprint and hopefully get us on course for our first award!

Well done everyone, have a relaxing weekend there will be lots more exciting things to come next week!
