Social Stories are a fantastic way to talk to your children about real life issues in a child-friendly way. We have attached a Social Story titled "Getting a Coronavirus test done" which you may find useful to share with your child if you were ever to need a test.
Year 1 have settled in beautifully to their new classrooms and have really enjoyed exploring the learning resources. We were really impressed with their amazing creations and discoveries! This week we have shared the story of ‘Traction Man is Here’ and the children set up superhero scenes where a superhero was needed to save the day! Well done Year 1 on having a super start to your learning.
Year 4 had a fantastic afternoon today learning all about directional language. As part of our computing lesson, we blindfolded our partners and gave them clear and concise instructions to follow around the playground. Our aim was to have them navigate through cones and along paths without bumping into anything. We learned that it is surprisingly difficult to walk in a straight line with you eyes closed!
After a fantastic week last week settling back into school life and getting to know their class teachers, Year 4 are really excited to get underway with their topic. This half term we will be going on a "Road Trip USA" and learning all about the United States of America. We will be finding out about the different states, native American history and comparing life in the USA with life in the UK.
As the start to our topic, the children enjoyed learning how to describe exactly where in the world the USA is using geographical language. Year 4 also completed an orienteering challenge to locate and collect tickets from 14 US states hidden around the field, before plotting their locations on a map of the USA.
In September we would like the current school councillors to continue their work until Christmas. Their role will be to help the new school council.
A new school council will be elected in the first half term. If you would like the opportunity to become a school councillor, please prepare a pitch which you will do to your class. Include ideas on how the school and community can be improved.
Meetings will obviously be very different but plans will be outlined next terrm.
Have a smashing summer.
Thank you to the Year 4 School Councillors who have made a massive contribution to the school. We wish you the best of luck in the future.
