The children are very excited this week; we have received a mysterious letter, delivered by an owl! The children will be creating their own stories based around the letter, following our journey story structure. We can’t wait to read them!

T4W

This term’s model text for Talk 4 Writing is Billy the Brave Knight.

The children have drawn a text map for the story and are fantastic at retelling the whole story – Well done Elves Class.

Next we will be innovating the story to change parts to create own version of the story.

P4C

Over the past couple of weeks we have been enjoying our Philosophy for Children (P4C) sessions. P4C underpins our caring and questioning ethos. Children learn to listen to and respect one another and challenge and explore the beliefs and values of others, as well as developing their own views and making more deliberate and responsible judgements.

This week we have explored the question:

Should we face up to our fears?

In our discussion the children explored, what fear was, what makes us frightened and what might happen if we do face up to our fears.

Elves Class are thoroughly enjoying their weekly P.E. lessons with our sports coach Mr Pitman. This week we have learnt about the importance of teamwork and ways to work closely together. We have also been improving our ball skills and the importance of ‘soft hands’ when catching a ball.

Please make sure your child has their P.E. kit in school every Tuesday and Wednesday.

Purple Mash

Today we have been creating our Purple Mash avatars. The children have had great fun choosing their individual facial features and clothes. Remember you can access Purple Mash at home; your child has their own login details in their school planner. The website is full of fun learning activities which cover all subjects. Have a look or come and talk to Mrs Dudley for inspiration.

The Great Fire of London workshop

We had a fantastic morning learning all about The Great Fire of London. Partake Theatre company came in to deliver an exciting workshop, retelling the events and bringing the story to life. All the children enjoyed dressing up as citizens of London in 1666. We also had our very own King Charles 11 and Thomas Farriner, a huge thank you to Samuel and Nyomi. The children joined in with drama and dance enthusiastically, ask us about the facts we have learnt!
