Yesterday in Literacy we worked together in pairs to match up different football industry jobs and their wages. When we found out the answers, some of the wages were quite surprising to us. We found it most surprising that footballers in the U.K earn thousands more than professional footballers in Kenya and football stitches only get 20p for each football they make! In pairs we then began to discuss and write down whether these were fair or unfair wages before coming to our own conclusion.
In class 3W we have been thinking what the world is like. We thought hard and came up with lots of ideas as a group. Some ideas were: it is a safe place to be, it is a creative place made by God, it is better when it is clean and there is no rubbish in the world. We looked at our ideas as a group and each group has thought of one key question they would like to look at further and research next lesson.
Our new topic for this half term is the World Cup which we are very excited about! In Literacy we have looked at how football has helped those suffering in parts of Northern Brazil to lead a better life away from violence. We role-played some of the characters we had looked at in the lesson.
We had lots of fun playing table tennis and dodgeball during sports week! Well done to the blue team in Year 3 who won the dodgeball tournament.
Well done to the Year 3 and 4 cricket team who won the trophy at this year's competition. Great hard work and determination by the team led to their success, well done!
Well done to these people who got their silver award in Mathletics! We have had lots of bronze awards so hopefully more people will be getting their silver awards soon too!
Well done to these people who got their pen licence. Only a few more people in Class 3W left to get theirs! Make sure you're keeping your handwriting neat and joined.
