Opening the East'gate!

It was so nice to see Eastgate return to school on Tuesday ready for the challenges and excitement of the new school year.

Eastgate have had a very busy first week back, completing many different challenges. On Tuesday, they went on a magic carpet ride to a far away, imaginary land! It was very exciting. They rode on an actual magic carpet, whilst listening to some theatrical music and describing what their lands were like. All the children did some fantastic writing about their lands, using lots of different language features.

The children also learned what the concept ‘Thunk’ means this week (ask them and I am sure they will tell you what it is!). They explored the ‘Thunk’ 'If you borrow a million pounds are you a millionaire?' Through lots of debate, and challenging their thinking further by focusing on language and what the word borrow implies, the children led an in depth discussion and came up with some very interesting ideas. This all influenced their opinions and helped them to see the idea in a new light.

Eastgate also had their first art session with Miss Walker who will be working with them this half term.  They began the session by learning a little bit more about Andy Warhol and will explore some of his most famous pieces of art work over the coming weeks.  

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all back, and say that we hope you all had a wonderful summer! We are so excited for all the different activities we have to do with Eastgate over the next year.
