Week beginning 20/03/17.

Whilst much will be retained this week - comprehension tasks, GPS tasks, worded Maths questions tasks, mental maths activities - there will also be the odd twist this week as visitors come and I ask the class for a little help to prepare for Drama Club's presentation of The Passion. Amidst writing up our adventure story and preparing an encyclopaedia-style non-chronological report on "the beast" in English lessons, Science lessons on dissolving and separating, P.E., D.T. and all the rest, firefighters will visit on Thursday for their bi-annual safety talk and I will be asking the class to prepare some palm fronds for the depiction of Palm Sunday and some "grafitti" for the story of "render unto Caesar what is Caesar's". We will also need to begin giving some thought to our presentation at Easter Service - which will necessitate a change to this Friday's English homework as I will be asking class members to commit the chosen piece of choral speaking to memory. Advance warning: they will need to be very thorough with their rote-learning as, unfortunately, I will not be with them for Easter Service as, on that Friday (and several subsequent Saturdays), I will need to be working in Manchester. More details as to the consequences next week...
