Week commencing 19th October

Mrs Hatch - 23 Oct 2020

What a busy half term this has been! The children quickly settled in to the new ‘normal’ and have shown us they are the stars that we know they are. We hope that you all have a lovely, well deserved half term. 
In our Maths lessons this week we have been looking at rounding numbers to the nearest 10,100, 1000 or beyond. We looked at a rhyme to help us remember which digits round up or down and the children did a really good job with their fluency, reasoning and problem solving. There will be no MyMaths homework this week as we are giving the children a break over half term. If they want to practise some of their mental maths skills then they can always log on and have a go at some of the games on there. Please can all children log on to TT Rockstars too to keep their times tables practise up. This will also ensure that everyone can log in and sort out any problems.
In Geography this week we drew maps of West Tanfield. The children initially drew a map and we discussed what maps showed. We then looked at ordinance survey maps and symbols and then had a go at drawing a map of West Tanfield again. The difference in their maps were huge and I was so impressed in what they had achieved in an hour. Here are some of the maps that the children drew at the end of the lesson.





In RE we looked at how the Bible can help people if they feel tempted to do wrong. We had some very deep conversations about what temptation is, what makes us tempted and what Christians can take from the story of Adam and Eve. I have been so proud of the deep thinking the children have shown and their engagement in our RE lessons this half term. Looking at Big Questions has really opened the children’s minds and they have demonstrated such maturity in their thinking.

On Thursday, the children watched the North Yorkshire Fire and Resucue Service's Dark Nights presentation and a letter was sent home informing you of the content. This was a very thought provoking presentation and we hope you will talk to your child about it and find out what they learnt about keeping safe.  You can find more information here:

We said goodbye to Eva today as she is leaving us to go to a new school.  We would like to wish Eva all the very best and will miss her contributions in class enormously.  Eva has been a great asset to our school and we know that she will shine like a star whatever she does. 

Have a lovely half-term holiday.  Stay safe everyone and we look forward to seeing you when we are back in school.
