Blogging with Deputy Mitchell

This week we have been working with the blogging guru Deputy Mitchell who has been sharing all of his wonderful expertise and skills.

Our children loved learning from Deputy Mitchell and were fascinated by the fact that people all over the world read our blog and replied to our posts.

The children were also very proud of themselves for blogging independently, take a look at the “all about me…” posts, I’m sure they will make you smile.

Blue Moose Dance Workshop

Today we were transported back in time to 1666 on Pudding Lane where the Great Fire of London started.

We imagined that we were candles, flames and sparks moving in the wind and spreading along the streets of London. We also imagined that we were a baker, wooden houses falling down, panicked people trying to escape the city and following the kings orders by rebuilding the city once again.

The children were fantastic in their expressive movements, take a look at their wonderful work.

Show and Tell

Every Friday afternoon our class looks forward to show and tell where they get to share their exciting news, broadcast their hidden talents or talk about an object or picture that is special to them. The children are enjoying working on their speaking and listening skills and are becoming increasingly confident when speaking aloud and in front of an audience.

This week we were particularly impressed with our superstar singer who would give any of the X factor contestants a run for their money! Simon Cowell look out for this further star in the making…

Anti-Bullying Week

This week we have been supporting anti-bullying week and we have been discussing the theme “all different, all equal”. We have been helping our children celebrate what makes them, and others unique and help them understand why it’s important that every child feels included in school and is able to be themselves without fear of bullying.

We have also been discussing the features of bullying and how this differs from teasing and from those instances where we make the wrong choices.

We have also been acting out some scenes of bullying, take a look at our fantastic acting skills…

Fire fire!

Our new connector this half term is called FIRE FIRE! We have been very busy reading the story of Frances the Firefly and we have written our very own fire safety code.

We have also been imagining what we could see, hear, smell, taste and touch on bonfire night and we have used our wonderful ideas to write a firework poem.

We have also created some beautiful firework art using lots of different media such as chalks, ict and paints.

Marvellous Maths

The children have been working really hard to sort various shapes, numbers, objects, calculations and dominoes into a carroll diagram.

They even came up with their own criteria to sort the objects and were challenged to sort them in as many ways as possible. Take a look at their fabulous work.
