Year 1/2 have been very busy learning about the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. They had great fun using finger paints to design a colourful Queen’s head. The boys and girls were busy writing diamanté/diamond poems. A diamante poem, or diamond poem, is a style of poetry that is made up of seven lines. The text forms the shape of a diamond. Have a look at the finished masterpieces ๐Ÿ‘‘

On Monday it was our turn to walk, bike or scoot to school. We got out on our wheeled vehicles to have some fun on the playground. It was so encouraging to see so many confident riders in our class already!

Thank you so much for your fabulous contributions to our growing challenge! We weeded the bed before planting onions, carrots, peas, sunflowers and some beautiful wildflowers! We can’t wait to see the little seedlings sprout but until they do we have some weeding and watering to do each week!

As our world book week author was Julia Donaldson, each child brought in a wooden spoon to transform into their favourite Julia Donaldson character. The children chose their characters, painted the spoon and then added details once it was dry. We had great fun retelling our stories using the spoons, don’t they look great?

As part of our topic ‘In the toy box’, Year 1 & 2 enjoyed making their own sock puppets this week. Mrs Kane helped with the hot glue gun and the children chose their materials and where each item would go. We can’t wait to use them next week to tell stories!

What a fantastic effort that was made by our children, staff and parents today for World Book Day.  The children were allowed to wear pyjamas or a book character costume and the effort put in was amazing.  

Well done to each of you. ๐Ÿ˜

Our class have been taking part in mind explorers each week. The children have been learning some breathing techniques using a breathing ball, when the ball pens we take a deep breath in and then closing the ball we breathe out. Using a mirror the children look at their reflection, give themselves a big smile and express something they are thankful for. Lots of the children are thankful for their family members, pets and friends in school. It has been a lovely time for the children to be still and to have a brain break from their busy schedule in school each week. Why not ask your child about the breathing ball, I’m sure they will have lots to tell you!

Wow, look how amazing our book day costumes are! Some of us dressed up as our favourite book characters and some children wore their pyjamas to read a ‘bedtime story’. Each child brought their favourite story which you can see in their photo. We had some really creative costumes using items from home, thank you so much for all of the extra-special efforts put into preparing for these costumes today!

We enjoyed delicious pancakes in class yesterday! Mrs Kane was our chef, we waited patiently for them to cook in the pan, they smelt so good! To make our ‘Gruffalo’ pancakes we added blueberries for the prickles, orange segment for the eyes and a juicy raspberry for the nose. Thankfully they weren’t poisonous as the story suggests! Unfortunately by the time Mrs Kane got it all served out there weren’t many pancakes left to photograph- we-ll take it as a sign that they were really enjoyable! ๐Ÿ˜‚ Did you make pancakes at home?

As part of our world book week activities our class got to enjoy a fabulous session from Debutots. We heard a fairytale mash-up story which taught us all about saying please and than you. The children took part through using actions to retell the story and playing musical statues and acting out parts of the story. at the end of the story the characters all had a party, we joined in by having a bubble party!
