Magical Creature Home Blogging Challenge

This half term we are holding a special blogging event that will give children a chance to show their fantastic writing skills. For the challenge children could describe what the creature looks like, think about a name for the creature, think about any magical powers that the creature might have or think about a story about the creature.

You can type up your child’s ideas or they could help you to type it onto the blog.

Deadline – Thursday 30th November.

There will be a winner from the Foundation Stage who will receive a trophy and prize. The winner will have their writing published in the school newsletter and there are also several prizes available for runners up.

Please leave your comments below to submit your child’s entry.

We can’t wait to read your creative writing!

You’ve Got A Friend In Us!

We watched Year 1 class assembly where they celebrated the work they have done so far this term. When we got back to class we listened to the song that they sang and discussed what makes us a good friend.

Check out the song below:

You’ve got a friend in us because we:

  • Share
  • Play together
  • Make each  other laugh
  • Are kind
  • Help each other

Our Rules…

 

 

 

 

We talked today about what ‘democracy’ meant. We talked to our Learning Neighbours and came up with some rules we would enforce if we were in Parliament…

Here are some of the things the children thought that they would make everybody do…

Everybody makes my dinner.

Make everybody go next door.

Mop my floors.

Nap times.

Play with marbles.

Play together.

We then held a vote to decide whether the children would prefer to play and eat chocolate or work and clean…

 

24 children voted for the play option and 4 children voted to work and clean!

 

 

Happy Hand washing!

We are learning about keeping healthy and have been finding out about washing our hands correctly.

We have been discussing when to wash our hands, how to wash our hands and why we must remember to wash our hands.

This is what we think:

Tia thinks we need to wash our hands because we get germs on them.

Lilly says if we don’t wash our hands we will get a poorly tummy.

Lucas says his Mummy doesn’t wash her hands and she has got a poorly tummy.

Jack says you have to wash your hands quick so that we don’t get more germs.

Harley says we have to wash our hands after the toilet and before dinner.

 

Our Brilliant Bones.

This week we will be listening to and joining in with the Funny Bones song.

What do you think we would look like without any bones?

 

 

We talked about our bodies, here are some of our ideas…

Lily – “An X Ray shows you the bones inside.”

Katie – “Bones help us to walk.”

Safiyah – “We have lots of bones in our hands and feet.”
