Leeds Recycles

I’ve been very impressed with your enthusiasm during our ‘human impact’ writing topic. You’ve been researching topics such as: the effects of plastic, deforestation, pollution and climate change. You have carefully formed opinions on these, giving reasoning for your thoughts. The statistics you found whilst researching helped your points be even more persuasive.

Leeds recycles visited today. This was a great opportunity to give us an insight on what is going on at a local level with recycling. During the first discussions, I was very impressed with input from Stathis, Chloe and Saad.

We then used recycled goods to crest our very own purses and wallets… Elizabeth’s worked great!

Asher, Zeeshan, Lexi and many more of you made sure you took notes during the following recycling session.

I hope this experience helped and am looking forward to you starting the main points in your letter next week.

Black History Week:

We looked at the Windrush generation this week. We wrote diaries from the perspective of people travelling from the Caribbean to England for the first time. Thursday was used to edit our writing as well as tea stain paper, to make it look like it it was actually from the 1940’s.

See you Monday for another brilliant week of learning!

I hope you are enjoying the new classroom as much as I am. One of my favourite lessons this week was experimenting with watercolour paints. I’ve just put up work from: Sophia, Zaid, Ophelia (and a few more). Well done on this, we shall be developing our skills further in our next Art lesson.

Congratulations Gagandeep for being Learner of the week – you have really impressed me this week, from your committment to booster and engagement in Maths lessons.

Anyway, I hope you all have a good weekend and find some time to complete the tasks below and of course recharge your batteries! It’s Ralph’s second birthday Sunday, he says woof!
