This week, the children were delighted to be the first McNamara’s Marvel’s of the new decade!
The children brought their English learning and I was impressed with their vocabulary. We played a game where we guessed what some of the new words children had learnt meant, which they were all very good at. If you’d like to play too I have listed the words below!
Lacklustre Monotonous Dilapidated Exceptional Vantage
This week, we also heard an amazing story opening of Dracula, written from Dracula’s perspective. The tension build was comparable to current BBC adaptation!
This week’s Marvels were sharing their French learning from across the half term. We had 2 songs; one for the colours in French and one song about Halloween – both of the performances were entertaining and each child received an applause. Before sharing their learning, some children made disclaimers regarding the accuracy of their pronunciation(!), but they still impressed. In Year 5, children had been learning about the dates of important events in France and which special days we share. If I were to holiday in France, I’d certainly be inviting these children along to help me out.
Well done, what a fun end to the week!
We had a double-whammy this week and what fantastic work there was!
The roll over from last week was very interesting as all the children brought their wonderful history and geography learning. I was very impressed with the vocabulary the children used and how they helped each other remember some of the interesting facts.
This week, the children brought their RE learning; I really enjoyed hearing the children making links between different religions and non-religions.
Today’s meeting made us all think it was bedtime! Our juice, treat and pyjamas made us feel like we were at a sleepover however, all the exciting work there was to share soon woke us up!
The children were articulate in explaining their activity and what they had learnt; topics ranged from the Vikings to Philippe Petit.
Well done to all the children who came to this week’s celebration.
I had a wonderful meeting with the children who were chosen to come to the very first McNamara’s Marvels! I have been impressed by their work on the iPads, their
knowledge of the Victorians and the way they have demonstrated the school values through their work in class.
Well done to all!
