Miss Barlow's Weekly Words Summer 6
Problems, problems, and more problems to solve! During this problem-filled week...
... (it has been Problem Solving Week!) the girls have used many different skills including logic, reasoning, communication and collaboration to solve a variety of tasks. From 'Lemony Snicket' inspired treasure hunt and marshmallow and spaghetti towers, to Dragon's Den and marble runways, the girls have been totally engaged and enthused by the activities on offer. They have learned that you don't always solve something the first time of trying and that resilience, perseverance and collaboration are important skills to have when solving problems. It has been wonderful to see the hive of activity including a lot of learning outside and classes coming together to learn from each other.
Also this week...
The Upper Juniors competed for their house in their annual Swimming Gala. Yes it was hot, but the skill, technique and effort shown by all of the pupils was outstanding. We had many medals, even a record or two broken, and everyone is to be congratulated for their enthusiasm and attitude.
Year 3 visited Woburn Safari Park. They saw many animals and learned a lot about animals native to Africa. I have heard that the lemurs were very interesting!
Reception took a bus trip to the library. The class caught the bus at the bottom of our road and travelled to Maidenhead Library. They enjoyed their journey very much.
Ninja Coding visited Year 6 to teach the girls all about coding and entrepreneurial skills. The girls not only learned about coding but patenting and business plans too!
Have a look in our weekly gallery for this week's photos.
I cannot quite believe that we only have half a term left of this academic year! I hope you all have a wonderful half term.
