Term 2 Week 6
Dear Parents and Carers,
This week, we have again been practising our Superstar Nativity which is now ready for filming on Monday! We are all very excited and proud with all our hard work, and we hope that you will enjoy the results! In maths, we have continued to divide fractions by integers and other fractions which we are now much more confident at. English saw us plan and write a first person narrative; writing about Grey, one of the foxes, at the end of his life. We have added in lots of description and figurative language as well as adventurous vocabulary and a range of punctuation! In geography, we are continuing to make our ‘Muddy Foot Print’ booklets. In history, we looked at soldiers’ experiences during World War Two, and discussed whether all men would have fought. Our science lessons involved looking at how exercise affects the heart with us recording our results using a line graph. With Mrs Clements in art, we continued working on our fox portraits using charcoal, thinking about tone and texture.
Next week will see us finishing Pax, which we have all really enjoyed and have learnt a lot from. We will be writing book reviews and publishing our written work on Pax for display.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the Advent festivities!
Miss Simpson, Miss Kish and Dr Wilson
I’m Miss Kish, and I can’t wait to get to know you all next year! This will be my second year at Southborough, and I’m looking forward to being able to (hopefully) teach for a full year with no interruptions, unlike this past year which has been so bizarre for everyone. I love being a teacher, because I love sharing knowledge and also continuing to learn myself, as well as encouraging you all to love learning too! My favourite subjects are history, geography and languages; I studied French and Italian at university, as well as a bit of German and I’m teaching myself Spanish at the moment too. One thing you’ll notice about me is that I will often go off on a linguistic tangent and teach about the history of words! Some other interesting things about me: I love horses and used to play an equestrian sport called polocrosse; I’m a bit Harry Potter mad and I love old, cheesy music.
I’m so looking forward to getting to know you all and find out your hobbies and interests too,
Miss Kish, your new teacher
