This week the children have been watching a short film clip about Sprout Boy, a lonely sprout who wanted to spend christmas with friends. The children have designed their own christmas dinner characters and been describing them using adjectives and expanded noun phrases.
This week we have been reading Queen Victoria's Bathing machine, a true story about a very special gift from Prince Albert. The children enjoyed making predictions about what they thought a bathing machine was and practised answering written questions about the book. They made predictions about what would happen next and orally retold the story to their partners. They got in role and wrote a letter to Prince Albert thanking him for his amazing gift.
This week has been National Anti-Bullying Week. The children have been thinking about what bullying is and what bullying isn't. We have focused our attention to being kind and have designed kindness calendars. We thought of ways we can be kind to others and ourselves. In class we have a 30 day kindness calendar which we will aim to achieve each day. We have also been thinking about our emotions and how we can calm down. Yoga Bugs have excellent video resources to help us at home and school.
Welcome back Wise Owls. It has been lovely to have you all back with smiling faces this week. We have been recapping expectations and rules in the classroom. We have had some children showing excellent listening skills and being independent with their tasks. Keep this up children!
Just a polite reminder about homework. It is an expectation that children learn their spellings each week which will be tested every Friday. Children must also read 3 times a week and this should be recorded in the reading diary. Homework will continue to alternate each week. One week there will be a written task in books, the next week their will be a purple mash task. Please can you take the time to explore purple mash with your child as in the event of isolation or a bubble closure this is what we will use. Click on the icons and navigate around the website. What does each button do? Can you return to the main menu? There are hundreds of fun activities and applications your child can go on. Have you had a look at them? Feel free to go on these any time not just for homework. Tasks can be saved in your child's folder to show us in school. The reminder below has been sent home for your information.
