Spring 1 Week 4

The week began with an engaging ICT lesson where the class were introduced to Rockstar Times Tables on the computers. This is a fantastic website; giving the children opportunities to practice their times tables and move on with their learning while competing with their friends. They even got to customize their characters and earn rewards. It is safe to say that Rockstar Times Tables was a success in Pentire with lots of fantastic maths learning and competitions taking place across the lesson.

 

In English this week, the children have been set a challenge to write a persuasive text: convincing the school that mobile phones would be a valuable resource during the school day. The children thought of many reasons (not surprisingly) why phones would be a super resource to support learning. Here are a few examples of the children’s first drafts in the photos below. We look forward to editing and then writing our final drafts next week.
