Friday's learning and exploring with ODD SOCKS on!



Reading, reading, reading - at least 3 times a week please

In our Zoom assembly on Friday, Mrs Mason shared with the children some information about the super reading training that some of the teachers had attended.  One of the key messages from the course was all about the importance of reading regularly.  We read all the time at school and that regular practise at home makes all the difference.  Remember children, you signed your school agreement in September saying that you would read 3 times a week - go explore the exciting world of literature - go to places that you can only imagine.  Even in Lockdown we can explore places we never knew were possible.  Please share below in the comments the books you are enjoying at the moment - let's try to get every one to comment - tell your friends - share the good news of books and the power of being able to read.

Here is one to start us off - James in Class R enjoying his book - James, just like your top says, you are totally 'ROARSOME'!

Class R's Stars of the Week!

On Friday morning, I went to the Zoom whole school assembly to represent our class.  I told everyone how proud of you I was and how brilliant you had been carrying on your learning journey at home.  Everyone was pleased to hear that you were all safe at home and said hello.

So here are some photographs of Class R's STAR OF THE WEEK..... every single one of you!  We've all come a long way since our very first day together (which has only been just over two months) - you've settled beautifully into your very own BIG school and  grown in so many brilliant way and Mrs Evans, Mrs Straw and myself are incredibly proud of our team!  Thank you for adapting and taking this different way of learning in your stride - thank you too to Mummies and Daddies who have supported our learning journey at home - you've been amazing and I look forward to seeing what the week ahead brings.  Go Team R - I am so proud - learning can be fun, exciting and bring a challenge wherever we are.

Keeeeeeep exploring!

Children in Need 2020 with Class R

The children in Class R started to understand what Children in Need was all about today.  We learnt about Pudsey Bear and he helped us to count backwards and think of lots of things which start with 'p'.  In our explore and learn time, the children created a Pudsey gallery and loved exploring all of the learning zones which were based on Pudsey.

We talked about this year being the 40th year of the BBC's Children in Need and how the event raises lots and lots of money to help children all over the United Kingdom.  Over the last two days we have talked about Joe Wicks and his 24 hour exercise challenge to raise money for Children in Need - we even joined in with him in our P.E. lesson and today!
