Happy Christmas.

Thank you for all of the gifts, cards and well wishes that I have received this week. Thank you also for contributing food to the Einstein Christmas party, the children throughly enjoyed themselves this afternoon.

It’s been a busy but enjoyable autumn term and I look forward to seeing you all again in January.

Have a lovely Christmas and best wishes for the new year.

Balloon Buggies

To finish our Science topic on Forces, Einstein class had great fun this afternoon making balloon buggies.

The children used their Maths skills to measure; their reading skills to follow a set of instructions (without any help from the teacher) and their problem solving skills as lots of growth mindset was needed when the wheels didn’t go round. However, in the end they all moved and a little Christmas decoration was added to some!

Hopefully next week we will be able to race them.

Reflective thinking.

This week in Einstein class, we have been very reflective about how we interact with others.

We have thought about how calling others names can make them feel like a crumpled piece of paper – it leaves a mark and can never be undone.

Even though we are all different, we need to work together to create the Einstein team.
