On Thursday Fir Class had a visitor. Mrs Bastable from the Watford schools Trust came to talk to us about the Christmas story. It was a really interactive lesson, the children had puppets, puzzles and had to make sound effects to help them retell the Christmas story. We’re feeling festive ready for the Christmas Fair on Sunday!
Why not borrow this book from the library this weekend… The children have loved reading it and writing character descriptions and retells of it this week. We will be writing our own alternative endings for it next week in English, I can’t wait to read them!
Ask your children to explain the story depicted on the willow pattern plate:
On Thursday Fir class enjoyed the assembly about emotions and how to deal with different feelings. The children were very eager to talk about what they had learnt on their return to the classroom. This is in good preparation for our anti-bullying day next Friday.
This morning we have enjoyed an assembly from Revd. Waddell. Mr Gray from Three Rivers Refugee Centre also came to personally thank the children for the donations made. May we take this opportunity to thank you all for the generous donations made to such a worthy and local charity.
This morning we have watched a thought provoking performance by Magical Minds to understand different emotions, how we deal with them and to understand we need to experience all emotions to understand and complete our journey.
The Tanners Wood Book Exchange will be taking place for KS1 in Holly Class straight after school next Monday. Bring any books you have finished with and exchange them for new ones for free!
What an busy first few weeks Fir class have had! We have been learning about place value in Maths, we have started our new topic in history ‘the great fire of London’ and in English we have been studying the poem ‘My Mother is a Superhero’ by Pie Corbett. We even had a go at writing our own superhero poems!
The children celebrated their effort and achievement on Thursday morning.
Fir class had to rescue a lego cube from ice! We kept our hands on it to warm it up and melt the ice. We also kept hitting the ice block with a pencil to crack it! We had great fun!
