Dear Parents and Carers,
This week we started creating a poster about Victorian schools. We chose to write about four areas of Victorian school life including subjects, discipline, teachers and classrooms. Our task was to compare these areas with our modern class. For example, with subjects the Victorians were focussed on the 3 R’s (reading, writing and arithmetic) whereas our classes has a wider choice of curriculum.
Victorian discipline is also different because they have much stricter and harsher punishments such as the cane, the dunce cap and standing in the corner for misbehaviour. Modern schools however take a different strategy such as losing Golden Time, standing outside the classroom and suffering Mr Cross’ deadly stare.
We also hosted a maths and numeracy open morning in P5b this week which we hope you enjoyed if you attended. In P5b we focused on co-ordinates and had three stations in the classroom which were chess, battleships and a co-ordinates workbook. We have explained in previous weeks how chess works but battleships is a game where you play against an opponent and you place your boats on different places on your grid and your opponent has to try and guess the co-ordinates of your ships to destroy them. You mark your hits and misses with red and blue pencil and the winner is the player who destroys the enemy ships first!
We are also proud to report we have reclaimed the Daily Mile trophy for P5b this week! We ran as hard as we could and beat our lap total from last week. Next week it is Valentine’s Day, Pancake Day and Chinese New Year! We hope you enjoy eating some pancakes and spreading some love with your family!
Enjoy your holiday on Thursday and Friday
