My class kicked off Generous June by opening the Kindness Kiosk. If anyone is feeling lonely at playtime then they can visit the stall to find a friend and receive a sticker with a kind message on it. Well done to those children who have given up their time to help with this part of the project.
We made another contribution to Generous June by making and selling Bombay potatoes with Mrs. Walker. The proceeds will be donated to St. Gemma’s Hospice and Dogs’ Trust charities. Next week, Isla, the Leeds Children’s Lord Mayor will be visiting ACE to find out about all the generosity and kindness activities that have been happening all over school.
There has been plenty of deep thinking going on in Year 4 this week. We have explored the concept of kindness and generosity, discussed the advantages and disadvantages of having a Viking as a friend, and we have thought about how to create a predator that would be at the very top of the food chain.
The Talent Show this afternoon was a great way to start the weekend. Although Singher had the enormous pressure of being the first act to perform, I thought she did really well. It must’ve been very stressful for Euanson too as he had to wait until the very end to show his amazing skills. Team Unicorn’s dance showed great balance, strength, flexibility and, of course, wonderful teamwork. I was very proud of all of the children in my class who took part.
The homework focus for Maths is problem solving with money, as well as a challenge about prime numbers, and the English topic is spelling sounds.
Deacon earned 21 units on Lexia this week and Ramtin has answered 2201 questions on Sumdog in the last 7 days. Wow! However, I have chosen two children to be Learners of the Week to link in with Generous June. Both Rhys and Susan set great examples by their attitudes to learning and their attitudes to all pupils and adults in school. They generously give their best in their work, and they are humble and kind towards others.
Have a good weekend
