Class 4's blog
This morning we were joined by Nigel and Maxine, our local PCSO and Police woman, who came to talk to the children about road safety.
On Tuesday the 27th of June, we had a very special visitor; his name is Richard and he was from the British Red Cross. He came to teach us (the year six students) all about first aid. We were taught these skills to ensure that we know what to do in medical emergencies.
On the 28th of July 2017, Class 4 went on a trip to the Mayor’s Parlour. As you are probably aware, Newcastle has a new Mayor – Simon White. He lives in our own community and owns the Old Hall. He is also Madeley’s elected Borough Councillor.
This morning, we started our Key Stage Two assembly by exploring the poem, 'Windrush Child' by John Agard.
During the course of the past two weeks, Class 4 have been exploring 'A Midsummers Night's Dream' by William Shakespeare in English and Guided Reading. So far we have looked in detail at the first two acts of the text, exploring the meaning of unfamiliar vocabulary in context, summarising events that have occurred and inferring meaning about how the characters are feeling.
Last week, I held pupil interviews with children from each class throughout the school in order to gain an insight about their attitudes towards Maths. Pupil interviews are exceptionally important because they let us exactly what the children feel and makes them feel valued. It also helps our school with our self-evaluation and often helps us to drive improvement.
On Wednesday 21st June, all pupils at The Meadows Primary participated in our annual Sports Day at Keele University Sports Centre. It was a wonderful afternoon where all children actively participated in a cycle of sporting activities designed to test their speed, agility, stamina and control.
This week Class 4's homework will be their monthly maths challenge:
Homework is due in next Friday.
