This week we began our History topic for this half term: Potters Bar at War. After experiencing an air raid, we looked at the chronology from the lead-up to World War One all the way to the outbreak of World War Two. We’re looking forward to seeing, in the coming weeks, how these two wars affected the town in which we live today.
It has also been Maths Week England this week, so in addition to our maths lessons and our maths fluency sessions, we have also been solving tricky problems using bar modelling each morning.
In karate this, we learnt how to perform the Pinan Nidan kata, which is a flow of moves and postures from one to the next.
Our hockey sessions continued with practising keeping possession and passing with control.
