Tuesday, June 19, 2012 Day 11 The day started out by the students working on coming up with a different way for scoring an olympic event for a warm up. After that, we moved on to mathematics. Today for mathematics we combined with the other three year six classrooms and went outside to get different measurements to calculate mean, median, and mode. There were four different events which included: standing long jump, standing high jump, relay, and shot-put. We did two today and will be doing two tomorrow. Next we had literacy where we had individual reading time. After literacy we had our rotation sessions. These three sessions included: african drumming, science, and physical education. For the first session, I decided to go and watch african drumming. During that time, the students worked on the dancing that will go with the drumming they had been working on. Lunch came next and then session two. For session two, I decided to participate in science, which consisted of the students getting measurements for their science experiment by running outside. After session two we had singing again with their music teacher to rehearse some of the music for the play. We ended the day with a reading from the "Goodnight Mr. Tom" book.
After school we went into downtown London to see a play. We decided on Wicked, which many of us have seen in the states, but wanted to see here to compare. The cost of the play ended up only being 22.50 pounds and got us great seats on the ground level about 14 rows back. The play ended up being spectacular! If was very interesting listening to the play in a british accent and I noticed that some of the words were different because of that. Overall, it was a great time and I would recommend it to anyone.
