Weekly Update (Week ending 18.01.19)
Aldenham have had a fantastic week this week. Not only has our behaviour improved, but so has our attitude to learning. We have been looking at the differences between having a fixed mindset and a growth mindset, with children deciding that they wanted to have a growth mindset in every lesson.
In maths we have been tackling the really tricky topic of bar modelling. As a class, we really tried our hardest and persevered, thinking about what operations we might need to use to solve the problems.
In English, we have been writing job adverts for a position as a chef in Henry VIII's kitchen. The children had to consider the different skills a cook might need as well as the different features of a job advert.
In History we have been looking Henry VIII's six wives. We discussed why he married each one and how/why the marriage didn't last. We also shared our own opinions on who our favourite wife was and why. In science, we have been carrying out an investigation into how different materials might filtrate muddy water.
