Monday 9th October – Friday 13th October 2017
It has been another eventful and exciting week in Beluga Class!
The children have continued to investigate the historical and social significance of World War II. In Art, the children learnt about the devastating effects of the London Blitz. By using pastels and silhouettes they created dramatic scenes of the London skyline under attack. See some excellent examples below:
On Tuesday, we visited the local Synagogue in Westcliff, where the children were told about some of the traditions, practises and artefacts of the Jewish faith. Year 6, listened carefully and respectfully and posed insightful questions – they were a real credit to Leigh North Street Primary School.
Monday 11th September - Friday 22nd September 2017
The new term could not have started in a more perfect manner! The children of Beluga have arrived back from the summer holidays, to what will be their final year at Leigh North Street Primary School, in a fresh and focussed manner. Already much has been achieved!
To start the term we re-examined our Core Values and how we could apply them to our day to day school day and our wider lives.
Here are some of the responses the children composed:
“Perseverance is never giving up. If we have been given a task in the classroom or even in PE we should always keep going as there is always a solution.”
“Acceptance is tolerating and welcoming difference. It doesn’t matter who you are: it is what you are and how you behave to others.”
“Enjoyment is why we live, isn’t that the whole point of why we are here?”
Another high note has been the start of our humanities topic, The Second World War. The children have been learning about the causes of the outbreak of war and how this impacted on the lives of people across the globe. The children have listened carefully and have asked many an incisive question. It looks like it is going to shape up to be a most fascinating topic!
Thank you for those parents who were able to attend the Parents’ Briefing on Tuesday. If you were unable to attend, I do hope you received, from your child, the Curriculum Map pamphlet which outlines the subjects covered this term.
Just a reminder that swimming is on Monday and PE is on Thursday and Friday.
Homework is set on Monday (Maths) and Wednesday (English and or Topic)
