Star of the Week
This weeks star of the week is Esmay.
Esmay, you are always so positive and come into class every morning with a smile on your face. You have worked hard in Maths this week and worked well with your partner to measuring with non-standard units.
You are enjoying finding out what happens in Quest, the sequel to Journey and you used some fabulous adjectives to describe the girl, the boy and the King. During our workshop today from Tales from the Book of Life you were really engaged and showed us your fabulous acting skills! Well done Esmay.
Here are this weeks spellings. We will have our spelling quiz next Friday.
We have an author in today, Steve Clifford, who has encouraged us to use our imaginations! We have been drawing pictures of the world, but the trees might be upside down or the clouds might be raining cats and dogs or there might be blades of grass growing down from the sky!
Fabulous costumes today!
This afternoon Steve told us the story of 'The Ugly Duckling'. It was fun because the children got to do funny actions.
Christian has written again! This time he has produced a very interesting newspaper report about Corona Virus, full of interesting facts.
Today, in preparation for our literacy, we have had a rainbow themed day. The children painted their own, using fine brushes with great precision, then we made a rainbow from healthy fruit and veg and talked about the number of ingredients less healthy foods have. There was no blue fruit or veg. We looked at some blue sweets and did a tally of the number of ingredients they had in them...15 in total! We decided healthy food has fewer ingredients and that usually we recognise the names of the ingredients.
We sang 'I can see a rainbow' (and discovered the words were wrong in the song because there is no pink, like the song says) and used percussion instruments. We tried learning the names of the colours in French, but this was tricky!
