Super teamwork Crew Jackson

This morning during crew we worked together to play listening games. We then went on to take it in turns to guide our blind folded partner, using verbal instructions and sound signals, through an obstacle course. Afterwards the children reflected on how specific their instructions were, how trust was an important part of crew and how being blind folded made them feel.  It also made some think about how well they know their left and right!

Berlin Wall artwork

Yesterday we made links between the segregation in the story ‘Mixed’ and the history of the Berlin Wall. The children were able to use their knowledge of World War 2 to understand how and why Germany was divided. We went on to produce artwork similar to that which was graffitied on the Berlin Wall, showing our thoughts about important matters like peace, freedom, saving our planet and racism.  Here are some of our finished pieces.

Superb silent discussions

Well done Crew Jackson for taking part in a silent discussion about our transition text ‘Mixed’. You all gave fantastic mature opinions and I was very impressed with your working attitude. Keep up the hard work!
