This morning we had a scooter workshop. We had a great time putting on all the safety equipment and we learnt how to brake. Adam, the scooter teacher also taught some one legged moves that included the miniman, the ninja and the ballerina.
We had our first swimming lesson this afternoon which went really well and we’re looking forward to doing this every week.
Welcome to Maple Class. We’ve had great but very busy first day. We started the morning with an assembly from Mrs Brewis and made a whole school recipe for making this school year a great one. After this, we came back to class and did a reading lesson where we had to answer questions about a picture. In maths were we reading and writing numbers before having our first topic lesson.
This was lots of fun and we were surprised when Miss Bolwell set off the old fashioned fire alarm! We weren’t sure what was happening but we made sure we evacuated Maple Class. After this we designed our front covers for our Great Fire of London topic.
This morning we recapped what mindfulness means and how important it is, especially in our very busy lives. We enjoyed another session of breathing activities outside in the sunshine to help us relax.
We also took a class photo of us with our self-portraits. Can you guess where we are?
Today we started to decorate our class creature which is called a “Weibop”. It has the following features:
Owl’s eyes because we are wise
A puppy tail because we are excitable
A dorsal fin because we are intelligent
A lion’s mane (yet to be added) because we are brave
Antennae because we are observant
Peacock feathers because we are pretty and beautiful
We also started our self portraits and learnt about an artist called Romero Britto. He uses bold, bright colours and patterns to make his artwork unique. We’re looking forward to finishing these tomorrow and showing them on Friday.
In maths this week we’ve been learning about telling the time. We recapped o’clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past before moving onto 5 minutes past the hour. We were very confident with this so today we learnt about telling the time to 5 minutes to the hour. This was more challenging. We made good use of our maths working wall to help us play a telling the time game on the laptops.
We continued with our gardening and we even found the enormous worm that Mrs Johanson found a couple of weeks ago.
