Another busy week in Lion class, as always!
We started the week with lots of assessments- woohoo! For Y6 this was the last of the full SATs practice before the actual tests at the start of May and for Y5 it was some regular end of term assessments. Mrs Smith was fabulously proud of our efforts.
We have been making some Egyptian canopic jars, which are cleverly constructed from two plastic pint glasses. We have now covered them in a material called Modroc and they are looking great. Next week, we will decorate them brilliantly.
We have finished our unit of Music lessons for this half term, all based on the old school hip-hop song ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’. We have learnt to perform it and composed some music for the glockenspiel. Our musical skills are certainly improving.
The last lesson in our PSHE work for this half-term was all about charities- what they are and what they do. We matched up cards with the names of charities and their work, which was quite tricky and then we did a research task on some charities.
On Friday, we enjoyed visiting the Mother’s Day sale. Thank you so much to our wonderful Friends committee for all your work to get these gifts ready. Thank you also for the movie night on Thursday- lots of us really enjoyed getting together to have a chill with our friends.
Our week ended with a visit from the Bedfordshire Police and Crime Commissioner Festus Akinbusoye. He came to talk to us about how he ended up with such an important job and gave us some really excellent advice for our lives. He was a very engaging speaker and we especially liked some of the bits of information he gave us. For example, he is in charge of a budget for Bedfordshire Police of nearly £140 million! He also told us that there are specialist dogs that can sniff out not only cash, drugs and people, but also sim cards! We are sure that we will remember his visit for a long time.
