Congratulations to Callum and Anaia for being this week’s superstars. Anaia wrote a beautiful river poem and always has a smile on her face. Callum never gives up and tries extremely hard in all areas of his learning.  (Picture to follow.) 

Hare class have taken inspiration from nature in their Literacy work this fortnight. They have written poems using metaphors to describe the different phases of a river's journey, following their work on Valerie Bloom's poem, 'The River'. Hope you enjoy their iMovies!

Some of the children’s published poems using watercolours to create a river landscape.

This week Hare class have learnt about the importance of tolerance and embracing each other’s differences. Hare class looked at some significant individuals for Black History Month and produced a poster about one person that interested them. Below are just a few of the amazing posters the children created.

Congratulations to Oscar and William, this week’s celebration stars. William produced an excellent River poem and Oscar has worked extremely hard on his times table knowledge. Oscar was also our class dojo star this week. Well done boys!

This week everyone has worked really hard, both in and outside of the classroom. There have been many ‘Show and Tells’ from children visiting local places on the Somerset Levels, making progress on their times table knowledge and sharing their views about Valerie Bloom’s River poem using thiinklink on the iPads. The children have been busy writing their own versions of this poem which they look forward to publishing next week!

Congratulations to these superstars this week. Jack has been thinking carefully about using adjectives appropriately in his writing and Maisie has been increasing her vocabulary. Kathryn was our class dojo star of the week for consistently working hard and being a good role model for the class.

The children took part in apple pressing and making willow stars this Friday to see what some people use the Somerset levels for. They found out apple pressing was hard but rewarding work. They also realised how much resilience was needed to make their stars. Well done Hare Class!

On Friday the children put their research about flood defences to the test. They were challenged to build their own towns, thinking carefully about where and why they would place it with a main river and floodplain. They then had to build their own flood defence based on their research in class. The children chose between afforestation, dams or levees. Finally their towns were put to the test. Well done everyone!

Superstars of the week. They are always giving 100% effort to their learning.

This week we have been... securing our place value knowledge with dienes, writing some amazing sentences for our picture book, researching about flood defences, investigating what things in our classroom may need repairing or replacing for different depths of water and retelling the story of the Good Samaritan.

Well done to these superstars for receiving the celebration award. Two great role models for Hare class!

This week I have been...researching the Somerset Levels, developing my hockey skills, playing place value games in Maths, acting out scenes from the picture book Flood, sharing with others what is important to me.

class dojo stars of the week

This week I have been learning... how to partition and order numbers, why Jesus is important to some people, about Bridget Riley and OP art, how to make a space painting.

This week I have been so impressed with everyone’s writing. We read the beautiful book ‘Here we are’ by Oliver Jeffers and thought carefully about our world and everything in it. Hare class wrote letters to someone special, listened and made their own favourite place poems and took inspiration from Blue Planet clips and Louis Armstrong’s song what a wonderful world to compose their own song.

We had a fantastic first day back! We shared the book ‘Silly Billy’ by Anthony Browne then talked about things that make us worry. We made Worry Dolls like Billy did in the story. If we have any concerns, we will let our dolls know to take our worries away.
