Whether working on a tricky calculation, a challenging swimming stroke or just needing someone to sit with at lunchtime, Chagwa class are a united front. We care and look after each other as well support one another in our learning. We know that whenever we are finding something difficult we can turn to any member of our team for help and guidance.
Chagwa class threw themselves into to book week with full force! From drama to dress up the whole week was made brilliant by the children's willingness to participate. We made settings from fables, met an author, had a book hunt, visited the local library and of course dressed to impress on World Book Day! I am so proud of how the children took on new challenges and were open to experience stories through a multitude of platforms.
Term two saw the formidable Chagwa tackling problems left, right and centre. This took place mainly in our maths lessons where children worked in pairs and groups to talk through problems to find solutions. We have taken a hands on approach to maths conundrums and no one is left behind as we demonstrate team work and determination. We looked at symmetry, shape, measure and used practical resources to assist.
Across the curriculum we have been trying to assert a certain level of creativeness. To do this we have included drama in literacy, sculpting in topic and cooking in maths!. This has enabled us to see our subjects from a creative perspective and allowed all children to access their learning from a more 'hands-on' approach.
