What do our

children say?

What did I enjoy in school this week?

(W/E 27.02.2015)


 Amira - I enjoyed History because we got to draw on slates with chalk and call Mrs. Dawood Madam!  We also found out that female teachers couldn’t be married.  It was quite funny when Sendil had to wear the Dunce’s hat!


Luana - I enjoyed writing about me in a PowerPoint and I enjoyed P.E and checking our pulse in Science!


Arbeena - I enjoyed maths games on ‘BBC’.


Riana - I enjoyed acting out a disastrous holiday because I like role play. 

This helped me plan and write a letter of complaint in English.


OluwaFumbi - I enjoyed when we transported to Victorian time

because we got to do a bit of drama in our History topic (Victorian Schools).


Hisham - I enjoyed multi-step problems because we had misconceptions and we were discussing it as a group. I also used efficient methods to work out.


Osman - I enjoyed finding 1% of a number to help me with percentage questions.  For example,1% of 500 is 5 and you move 2 decimal places.


Kara – I liked writing the maths stories and adding.


Imade – I liked learning Maths. I liked adding.


Sahiba – I liked learning Maths Makes Sense because we did lots of times.

We said ‘I love what your doing’.


Kevinas – I loved doing Maths too. I loved the part when

we were doing our progress books.


Kamil – I liked learning about Little Red Riding Hood and

doing my art picture for it.


Alexandru – I liked learning about Maths because

I liked adding and take away.


Gabriela S – I liked Little Red.


Nathan – I liked learning Maths Makes Sense. I liked adding and take away.


Enoch – I liked doing the colouring for Little Red Riding Hood.


Arnold - I really enjoyed writing instructions because I wrote

about how to play my favourite game.


Hussnain and Liza - We really liked making Chinese lanterns this week

 to celebrate the Chinese New Year. We also got to do Chinese writing.


Paris - I enjoyed my Literacy lesson because it was practical and

 I got to make a toy spinner.


Dedar - I enjoyed Maths because I learnt about the Commutative law.


Bilal - I enjoyed the Chinese New Year Assembly.


Elitsa - My favourite part of Maths is using the MMS cups.


Rua - I liked learning about how to make a Chinese dragon and

how to write numbers in Chinese.


Marcel - I liked learning about Ordinal numbers and now I know

how to same them up to 12th!


Muzn - I liked learning about the Chinese New Year story because we

found out that the animals all raced and that's how they worked

out which animal would be named after each year.
