Old things to finish, new things to start...

The first full week and no more random Fridays on which I have to work in Manchester...

We have some unfinished business to attend to. Our English topic from last term (surviving on that island) has to be completed rapidly. Thankfully there is little to do...just an account of the trapping of the beast, a brief non-chronological report...and the rescue! Similarly, we need to complete the books recording child labour in Victorian Britain for History and then there's the art work to be added to our DT cams machines to turn them from machines to moving toys. Hopefully this week, most of this will be out of the way, allowing us to move forward to the sunlit (nay, scorched) uplands of Ancient Egypt which, subject-wise, will dominate both English and History.

With regard to Maths, we've reached the time of year when lots of small topics take centre-stage. We have begun with averages and will soon encompass lots of other bits of statistics and geometry to sit alongside the vast vat of number work which has dominated the year. Assembling of a May Day dance has also begun in P.E. lessons, alongside cricket, and the usual rounds of comprehension, grammar, punctuation and spelling activities, mental maths and worded maths problems will return to fill the first forty-five minutes of every day. (The more things change, the more things stay the same - that would have been in French in honour of their presidential elections, but I couldn't find the button that would let me add the enhancement to the letter c!). Vive la France...and vive Indigo Class, too.
