Another very busy week in Bee Class!

This week we have:

  • Shared our thoughts about Confidence – the topic of Bee class collective worship – and then worked on a plan of action for sharing those thoughts with the school (and grown-ups who were able to come along – thank you!) through drama and the sharing of our own personal experiences. This took quite a few afternoons work – I thought the end result was great! Well done Bees!
  • In Maths this week, we have been revisiting Fractions – particularly how to find equivalent fractions and how to add them together, even when they have different denominators!
  • In Literacy, we have been trying to find the lost city of Midas using our spelling and punctuation knowledge, as well as starting to look at our brand new text, Varjak Paw.
  • In PE with have continued to practice our Hockey skills as well as balancing and stretching whilst doing Yoga.
  • Sadly, the weather hasn’t been kind enough to us this week to try out our parachutes…. Fingers crossed we get a dry afternoon next week!

Okehampton Rotary Club Quiz

On Wednesday 7th February, North Tawton is hosting the first heat of the annual Year 6 quiz. I would like to take 8 children (two teams of four) to take part. The quiz starts at 6:30pm and you need to be able to get to and from North Tawton school – let me know if you would like to/can take part. It is usually a very good evening, with cake and squash available to keep your brains firing!
