Children in Need
Today, we have come together to celebrate Children in Need. The children have made a great effort and all donated 50p to the charity. We have loved being cosy and warm in our PJs!
Learner of the Week!
Here is our Learner of the Week! This young lady received her award for always being so helpful and conscientious in the classroom. All teachers would benefit from having her in their classroom - Mrs Webb and I are lucky to have her.
PE - Basketball
In PE, Mr Gorner has been teaching us all about Basketball. Before we learned some of these skills, we had to warm up. Take a look at the photos to see our efforts.
Today, in Literacy we have been learning all about PRONOUNS! To make this a little bit more exciting we played a game. The children were put into teams and were each given a sentence that had 3 pronouns missing (words that we use instead of repeating the same noun over and over again). Each team had a pile of pronouns which they took in turn to turn over. If it fit anywhere in their sentence, they got to keep it. If not, they had to put it down (face up) for another team mate to steal if they wanted to when it was their turn. The winner was the person who managed to complete their sentence first, WON. The children got quite competitive and wanted to play again tomorrow..
WW2 Bake Off!
Before we broke up for half term, we had a full week of Design Technology in the afternoons. We linked what have learned in History about rationing and the food that was available during the time into our designs for our own fruit bun. To begin with, we learned about seasonality and tasted some fruit. Everyone was super well behaved and every child tried EVERYTHING! Some of us were surprised to find out that we liked more than we thought we would!
After we had tried the fruits and knew what our favourites were, we then designed what our fruit bun would have in it. The next day, we then made our buns down in the Art Room where we worked in groups to mix the batter (Mrs Gollick did not manage to get any pictures of this unfortunately as she was running around like a headless chicken helping all the children). We then divided the mixture between everyone in each group and added our chosen fruit to the bottom. Then came the best bit - eating one! The majority of the class enjoyed them with only a few disliking their creation.
