    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!

    More of you have sent in your pictures of the beds you have made for The Singing Mermaid. I think she'd definitely prefer the beds you have all made using recyclable materials. Well done for the thought and effort you have put in.

    Mermaid DT

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    This week one of your afternoon activities is to create a bed the mermaid from our new story 'The Singing Mermaid'. The story follows a mermaid who joins a circus and unfortunately has a very small and cramped bed in the Circus Train. Amber has been busy this morning creating a new bed for the mermaid using a cereal box. She also has then decided to turn herself into a mermaid too. Well done Amber for your hard work!

    The Singing Mermaid Descriptions

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    Today your literacy task was to describe The Singing Mermaid from the story. Lots of you have been busy using the story to guide your thoughts and adjectives. I have been really impressed with all of the efforts so far with many of you using a variety of adjectives. Lots of you are also taking more risks and are using more than one adjective in your sentences. Super work Year One!

    Den Time

    Posted by Miss E Fitzgerald
    George has been having a break from working hard by building a den. Inside his den he can watch films and draw pictures. It looks like he is having a great time, and I for one wish my garden was bigger in order to build one myself!
