Campaign for Recycling Plastic

Year 4&5 have been learning about the dreadful plastic problem which is developing across the world’s oceans and beaches. They have been shocked by a number of different statistics which highlight the enormity of the problem and have realised that action must be taken now to try and reduce the consequences of the “plastic problem” within their lifetime. The children have written letters to Mr Jacey to request that a recycling bin for plastics is put into the playground. They used persuasive language together with actual statistics to make him aware of the problem and have set up a meeting with him this week to try and further convince him that this is an important issue.

Numicon Puzzles

Year 1 have settled in brilliantly and were ‘thrown into the deep end’ during the first week! The children were challenged with a Numicon puzzle where they had to work together in small groups in order to solve the problem. Some children found it difficult at first, however, everyone worked together and supported each other throughout – a real team effort!

Amazing Peer Assessment

In Literacy, Year 3 wrote a mystery story as a sequel to the novel which they read in class – ”Ottoline and the Yellow Cat”. They made lovely little booklets. They asked for help from the Year 4 and 5 students to review their stories, give them constructive criticism and fill their Marking Ladders. Great peer work!
