Happy New Year to all.
The children have a made a great start to their new term and have had a very busy week which has seen them writing their own Viking myths inspired by the 1970s classic, 'Noggin the Nog.' They are designing and describing mythical dragons for their homework and are going to be doing some Talk for Writing at home as well to prepare for some more writing next week.
In Maths the children have been classifying, drawing and making 2d and 3d shapes while making a special effort to use accurate mathematical vocabulary.
The children have been gazing out of the window in their topic work to see how scenes change over time. They really enjoyed drawing their own view from the classroom window. We used a set of pictures created by Jeannie Baker, to focus our thinking. These can be viewed as follows: http://www.slideshare.net/MrsJuteau/windows-2992791
WELCOME TO 4E
The children have settled very quickly this term and have enjoyed making new friendships, establishing new routines and exploring new topics.
A highlight of the week is the Monday PE lesson in which the children have been very busy experimenting with choreography and dance. They were inspired by activities they tried in the summer holidays and chose surfing and body boarding as the main focus of partner work. After much experimentation, counting and practising and with the addition of the perfect soundtrack they were ready to take to the waves .....
A favourite time of the day is our Guided Reading session. Children work in small groups with the teacher discussing different texts then complete different tasks independently. This might include a comprehension task, dictionary work, independent reading, a book review, spelling practice or working with another adult.
Everyone loves relaxing in the book corner, under the tree!
