Hello! My name is Miss Cooke and I will be here all the way up until Christmas doing my PGCE placement. I am already familiar with Tardebigge as I was a TA here two years ago and am so glad to be back! I have had such a good week getting to know all the children in year 4 and observing the brilliant learning going on!
In English this week we have been focusing on improving our first person narratives by sharing and magpieing our ideas. Some children spoke through masks and really got into character! They have taken great care writing up their first person narratives as well as editing them to make them even better!
In Maths, we have started to add two three digit numbers together using base 10 blocks and number value counters. I have been really impressed with children remembering to rename.
We have continued to be botanists in science by writing up our celery experiment and observed that water is transported quicker in a warmer temperature.
In RE, we have been discussing the temptations Jesus faced in the desert and why he didn’t give in to them even if he really wanted to. We created water colour paintings of his time in the desert whilst resisting the temptation to eat a chocolate button placed in front of us! It was hard, especially when Mrs Stevens ate one in front of us!
Overall, it has been a fantastic week and I cannot wait to see you all soon!
