This week in English, we've been looking at figurative language in order to make our work more descriptive; we will be creating a 'Character Description' next week based on Miss Root from the Demon Dentist.
In Maths, we've continued to look at ordering and comparing numbers up to 4-digits, as well as adding 1000s to any number.
In Science, we completed our 'Eggsperiment' and discovered that - overall - water was by far the best liquid to drink, as it caused no damage at all to our eggs, whereas drinks like Lucozade, Monster Energy, Red Bull, Sugar Free Cola, Blackcurrant Fruitshoot, etc. all caused significant damage and staining to our eggs, which fascinated the class.
Our next afternoon topic will continue to focus on all things 'digestion', but this time - rather than just looking - we will be making the food to put in our mouths instead, as we begin our Design Technology unit of 'Cooking' in which we will be baking bread.
A huge congratulations goes to Ellie-May for being this week's Superstar- she was awarded this for having a great week in which she has shown a fab attitude. Jack is this week's Christian Value winner for his hard work in his lessons - specifically Maths and Swimming.
I'd like to take a little bit of time to say a huge thank you to the children for their effort over the last 2 days. On Wedesday, I received the news that I had to iscolate due to my partner needing a Covid-19 test, which then meant that I could not attend school until that was either cleared or confirmed. However, in true St. Peter's fashion, that did not stop us, and I was able to deliver my lessons and teach from home via 'Microsoft Teams'. This way, I was able to see, speak, hear and interact with the children as normal, with the help of Mrs Pritchard, and it went exactly as planned, if not better... the power of modern technology, eh? I want to draw attention to the fact that the majority of the children in class adapted brilliantly to what could have been a really disruptive scenario - they really were exceptional, which is testiment to their attitude and growing maturity.
I look forward to what challenges next week will bring!
