    Senses poetry

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Last week the children learnt by heart two poems based on a senses theme. This week we will be unpicking the key features a poet needs to use to create these types of poems and then writing our own to help spread the Christmas cheer. I was so impressed with their memory skills, far better than mine, so here is the poem map with picture clues on we used for one of our poems - see if your child/ren can recite it to you.

    Team work

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    The children demonstrated superb team work, delegation and perseverance skills yesterday afternoon. They were set the challenge of creating Christmas paper chains to reach across the classroom and were inspired by the staff room window to create their own window silhouette. We had teams of "cutters" and "stickers", a team of fabricators and even team mangers! The results still need some work but their efforts have certainly made the classroom look more "Christmassy" and given the children the chance to experience management and leadership skills as well as getting the work done.

    Reading for an audience

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    During "milk time" we have started having stories read to us by members of the class. It is an important skill to learn to speak clearly, confidently and expressively to our peers let alone do it whilst implementing our reading strategies. Well done Olivia for stepping up to be the first reader you did a fantastic job and set the bar high!

    Tres bien classe deux

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Class 2 have French sessions every Wednesday afternoon and have been learning vocabulary to help them communicate and explore their environment. Today's session involved learning the French words for the food we eat. Can they remember and use any of this new vocab at mealtimes at home?

    Spellings

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    Our homework this week is to work on learning 10 common exception words; door, floor and poor, because, child and children, and, find, kind, mind and behind. In class we used different activities such as "rainbow writing" and scrabble scores to help us. We have also been looking at the phonemes (sounds) and graphemes (spelling sounds) to help us with less familiar words. Please keep working on this at home. You could try spotting these spelling words in your reading books.

    Posted by Mrs L Trotman
    In the Wednesday afternoon musical drama sessions with Miss Blythe the children have been using the Snowman story by Raymond Briggs as inspiration. This week they made snowmen puppets!
