This is Me Week in 4 Blue

This week, as part of our project week ’This is Me’, 4 Blue have been learning about valuing differences and celebrating uniqueness. We have reflected upon our Broad Heath values: teamwork, knowledge, empathy, tenacity, communication, kindness, respect, brilliance, imagination, honesty, resilience and individuality.

Maths ~ Halving

We started off by discussing the skills needed for a mathematician and looked at halving shapes. We though about symmetry and how shapes are symmetrical or can be halved.

Answer these questions:

  1. What does ’half’ mean?
  2. Which skills are important in Maths?
  3. Which values did we use in this lesson?

English – Writing

We started off the lesson by listening to the song ’This is Me’. We looked at a range of vocabulary and developed inference and retrieval skills. We also looked at and discussed the different themes, such as diversity, friendship and equality.
We discussed the meanings of the words ’bullying’ and ’acceptance’. What do they mean?

Which themes did you identify?

We looked at the story ’The Lion Inside’ by Rachel Bright.

We discussed how the animals felt, looked at emotions and empathised, as we spoke anout different emotions. Using a thesaurus, we looked at synonyms for ’sad’.

What is the message behind the story? Which values did we use this lesson?
Which features did you identify?

We wrote a synopsis of the story, picking out keywords and looking at the key events of the story.

Which skills did you use?
Which words and themes stood out to you? How did the story make you feel?
