In Maths the children have been learning about line graphs. We discussed continuous data and how to represent this. We investigated the temperature in our classroom and created a line graph showing this data. The children worked in teams to create line graphs. I was super impressed at their very first try. Well done kids!
Today we had a film crew in school! The Local Authority are making a film about the impact Thrive has had in schools that use it. We were delighted when they chose us to be filmed showing what an amazing impact it has had. The hard work of the staff, and the willingness of the children to adopt its theory and practices makes me proud. I wear my Thrive lanyard with pride and passion every single day. Well done to the children involved today. You were amazing! Take a look at some of the action.
The children loved having the opportunity to become detectives today as part of our aspirations work. We went to the library and worked with Deb and Lizzie from NatWest bank. The children learnt about the job opportunities of working in a bank and then became police officers to look at pieces of evidence to identify if any transactions were because of fraud. The children learnt real life skills about opening a bank account, undersatanding how to read bank statements, how to withdraw money safely, how to protect yourself from fraud, what to do if you suspected something wasn’t quite right with your account and how to protect yourself on line by keeping yourself safe.
A fantastic session with information about job opportunities and keeping yourself safe on line.
On Tuesday, the Peacocks enjoyed tasting Mayan food’s and drink! We had lots of fun and described the different smells, appearances, tastes and textures of the delicious food. I was surprised how many children loved the Quinoa, a whole-grain similar to rice, eaten daily by the Mayans.
I was so proud of all the children who were willing to try everything, even the avocado!
What a fabulous and fun afternoon!
