Bestwood Class

Week beginning 8th October 2018

This week in maths, Mrs Wright's maths group have been developing their number skills.  The black group worked on place value in numbers - comparing and ordering and using the 'greater than' and 'less than' symbols.  The red group have been developing calculations and written methods using different operations and problem solving.  

Week beginning 24th September - Citizenship

Our citizenship topic this half term is 'Participating and Contributing to School'.  This week we have been working to contributing to the school's Macmillan coffee morning.  We created a 'Pin the cherry on the cake' game and made cakes to sell.  

Week beginning 5th September 2018 - Topic Work: The layers of the Earth

We've had a great first week back.  The pupils have returned ready to learn with lots of lovely stories about their holidays.  Our new topic is geography based: Volcanoes, Earthquakes and Climates.  Today we learned about how the Earth is constructed with the different layers.  We used Play-doh to make a model and cut it in half to show the inner core, outer core, mantle and crust.  

Week beginning 23rd July 2018 - Street Carnival Time!

Our transition topic has been countries in the World Cup.  To celebrate and share their learning each class set up a carnival stall and the school spent a wonderful hour at the carnival and learning about the different cultures.  Bestwood class had Egypt - they made butter cookies and pyramids, made information posters and created coded messages with hieroglyphs.    

Week beginning 16th July 2018 - Egyptian biscuit making

As part of our transition topic 'Egypt' we have been making Egyptian biscuits so give out to the school next week on our street carnival day.  They were very buttery, but not as sweet as ones we are used to.  The children all worked well together to make them.   

Week beginning 2nd July 2018 - Transition time

This week has seen Bracken Hill start the transition to their new classes.  We like to do this in July to allow all our students time to get to their new class team and friends before the holidays start, so there's no need to worry over the summer.  It's sad that our five Y9s have moved on, but they are now ready for the challenges of KS4, and we all wish them well.  However, Bestwood have had fun welcoming 4 new students to the class, who have all settled in really well.  It is going to be a fantastic year!
