    Messy Maps

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    Amber has been busy making a messy map of her bedroom. She has used Duplo to recreate her room, thinking carefully about where the different bits of furniture are. She was lucky to have the help of both of her brothers in order to achieve her masterpiece. Brilliant work Amber, and to those who have taken on the Geography challenge for this week.

    Newspaper Report

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    This week our book we are focusing on is Barry The Fish With Fingers. In this story, Barry is a hero and saves his friend Puffy. To mark this momentous occasion, you were asked to write a newspaper report retelling the story of how Barry used his fingers to save Puffy. I have been blown away by the time and effort put into these! Lots of children have been using those adjectives that we have been using for weeks! Super work Year One.

    Sounds Coding

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    This week one of your challenges has been to code sound. Coding is something we have looked at a few times over the year and always proves tricky. If you don't code it right, then nothing can happen, and getting it right isn't easy! The boys in bubble 5 were very keen to take on the challenge this week and they all managed to independently code so that the sounds played at certain times. They even managed to correct code which was put in wrong. Well done to everyone who has tried!

    Pencil Measuring

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    One of your maths tasks this week was to do a bit of measuring. You were asked to measure things around you with pencils. This was so easy feet, as measuring the length of something which is longer than 2 pencils is tricky. Well done to everyone who had a go!

    Diversity Week!

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    We are celebrating Diversity this week. Your afternoon activities are all linked to this theme, with you being able to choose a range of activities such as designing your own flag, thinking about how you have changed and thinking about how you are the same and different to one of your friends. I look forward to seeing the work that you all produce this week.

    Acrostic Poems

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    Today we began looking at another book which has a sea theme. This week is Commotion in the Ocean which is filled with short poems about sea animals ranging from whales and crabs to jellyfish and barnacles. I asked you today to create an acrostic poem about one animal. I have been very impressed with the hard work and effort that has gone into this task. Finley has created a phenomenal poem all to do with dolphins. Super work Finley!

    Advertising Poster

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    As part of our literacy this week, we have been thinking lots about the circus. In the story The Singing Mermaid, she goes off to Sly Sam's circus and becomes a singing act. I asked you to create a poster advertising her to the world - as would be for a general circus. You did not disappoint. Some of you created your own, some created your poster online and some of you completed it in school. Well done to everyone, I saw lots of WOW words like magnificent, amazing, spectacular. Super efforts!
