Balanced Arguments in RE

As part of a series of RE lessons, we examined reasons why people believe, or don’t believe, in God. We’ve discussed the importance of writing balanced arguments when discussing important subjects about which there are different viewpoints. We’ll be writing these today!

Nos encanta la comida!

It was European Languages Week this week! We’ve been continuing our Spanish learning, and should now be able to successfully navigate our way around a Spanish town and communicate in a Spanish classroom…

 

Of course, beside the language, the most important part of learning about any new culture is the food! While the gouda cheese, chorizo and alioli went down well, the stuffed olives… well, they divided opinion, to say the least.

 

What a load of RUBBISH!

Yesterday, 5A went to Sharston recycling centre to learn all about recycling and how all the different materials are sorted.

Firstly, we listened to what happened at the centre and then we got to experience it ourselves. We were able to take a look at how each item is recycled and where it goes.

After we had our lunch, we had to recycle it into the correct bins. We managed to recycle food waste and paper but we struggled when it came to the plastic. To help us, we needed to think about whether the plastic was a bottle or not. Only the bottles can be recycled.

We then got to guess where different items can be recycled as not all of them can. We looked at how items can be reused by taking them to the charity shop and letting other people have them.

Finally, we got to make bags out of recycled materials.

Young Leaders PE Sessions

We are developing our playground leadership skills with the help of staff from Denton Community College. Building our resilience and becoming reflective thinkers will help us both inside and outside the classroom! We also played some verbal and non-verbal communication games to sharpen our communication skills.
