Superb School Council speeches and so much more…

This week has been jam-packed: looking at inspirational women in whole class reading, solving puzzles involving negative numbers, finishing our work on the Here We Are text, exploring the life of Martin Luther King Jnr for Re day and of course the much anticipated school council speeches.

Here is the final ‘Here We Are’ display in our classroom. This week we have discussed the Black Lives Matter movement, thought about how we are all unique (see if you can spot our self-portraits), written setting descriptions and explored acts of kindness during the pandemic.

Thursday was Re day and this year we looked at people whose faith inspires them. We looked at the life of Martin Luther King Jnr. After watching videos and reading different texts we gathered information to write biographies. We wrote these into circular books which are now hung in the classroom. There is also a video on the school website of a couple of us sharing these – do take a look.

This afternoon, 9 very brave members of Willow Class put themselves forward to become members of the Executive Committee for School Council. All of the children spoke clearly and confidently and suggested such a variety of brilliant ideas (many of which are very different to previous years due to the current situation). They delivered their speeches via a Teams Meeting to the children in other classes which was very nerve racking in itself. A huge well done to all of them. Results will be announced on Monday afternoon, once Oak Class have had a chance to watch the speeches too.

  1. It’s been another great week by the sounds of things. I enjoyed learning about Michelle Obama at home this evening. And well done to all the children who put themselves forward for school council and for coming up with creative ways to bring everyone together!
