This week we explored the meaning of stereotypes and we reflected on the importance of not judging by appearance. We were inspired by the book Bill’s New Frock and we wrote stories of a child at UCPS waking up in the body of Dr Biddulph. We had lots of fun and we learnt how to write in the third person and use rethorical questions.
In Maths, we investigated how to multiply fractions by a whole number. We have been working collaboratively to journal our ideas, explain our reasoning and represent our calculations in different ways.
Well done to the Play Leaders who had their first training to learn new games and leadership skills. We are looking forward to seeing how they develop these to support active playtimes.
