It is our second trip of the week on Thursday and we are off in to town. If you could please send the bus fare in by tomorrow at the end of the school day as we will not have time to organise this on Thursday morning before we leave. If you are able to help, please get in touch. We are leaving school at 9.30am and returning to school for 1.30pm for the May procession.
Our park trip was fantastic on Monday and we had the best weather! Photos to follow.
Homework this week is to complete any of the pack from the 2 week holiday that you have not yet finished. The spelling booklet was to complete the first 4 pages and there are grammar sheets and comprehension practise also.
Maths with Parents has been allocated and I have re-allocated the shape work video and tasks as it had not been accessed by many children.
We will now be revising spelling content and using the CGP book for this from next week. I sent home all of the books we had in class. We will possibly be revising some of the Maths with Parents content also to refresh the children about some of the maths concepts.
You should have received an email regards the trip being rescheduled to Monday afternoon due to the forecast for tomorrow being less than favourable. We will go regardless on Monday and if you can help please let me know as soon as possible.
You should also have had the email regarding our other visit next week to town and the Millennium Galleries. If you are able to help with this please let me know – I know some parents had volunteered to help this Thursday. We also need to know about packed lunches by tomorrow so the kitchen can place their order.
You may have been told we are focusing on poetry this week – and we are all very enthusiastic about it!
Today we performed some of the poems. We have loved watching Michael Rosen read his poem ‘Chocolate Cake’. So today we used some techniques he uses to add expression and tone of voice and some simple body language to express ourselves in a poem. We chose ‘Please Mrs Butler’ by Alan Ahlberg and we did a choral, back and forth where the class were split in to 2 groups. I was very impressed with only a short amount of rehearsal time!
Please Mrs Butler (cue whiny voices…..)
Response from a very ‘not bothered’ Mrs Butler……
Please Mrs Butler…..
Still the same response from Mrs Butler….
Please Mrs Butler …….
Mrs Butler has had enough now!
The we read a poem by Brian Moses called ‘I’m walking with my iguana’ and we put this to music as it has a great rhythm. It also made us laugh…..
To finish we sang the song ‘Little Rabbit Foo Foo’ with the actions. This went down a treat and it’s possible you may have heard a rendition at home…..
