This week we were looking at how to relax with input from the school nurse and family support worker from Bloomsbury Children Centre. We then finished the session with a hand massage.
The children in year one, have been learning how to keep safe on bonfire night,
The children in Year Two, have been learning about how to stay safe on bonfire night.
This week, Year 5 have been developing their skills at persuasive writing. We have based it around our topic work on evacuees in World War 2 and have written a letter to parents persuading them to evacuate their children to a safer environment.
We rehearsed new sentence types to a develop our writing skills.
Then we selected vocabulary that would enhance our work.
In Maths we studied how to find the area and perimeter of shapes. On Friday we put our knowledge to the test by solving multi step word problems.
We worked in groups and earned points on how we worked together, the way we explained how we solved the problem and if we got the answer correct.
In Nursery this week the children have enjoyed listening to the story of Chicken Licken. They have been practising rhyme by remembering the names of the characters in the story. The children are now able to join in with the repeating phrases with great enthusiasm!
The children enjoy playing with the playdough and it is great for developing their fine motor skills. This week the children noticed that the playdough had become very sticky. We decided to make some more. We talked about the ingredients needed and took turns to mix everything together. The children enjoyed using the playdough when it was still warm and used lots of great vocabulary.
It is very difficult to take turns when you are only three! This week the children all wanted a turn on the interactive whiteboard. We talked about taking it in turns and I suggested that the children used the sand timer to help. With a little encouragement they did really well.
The School Council, met this week, to discuss and feedback on the work they have been doing regarding lunchtimes. The children collected the opinions of pupils and staff and were able to voice ideas from Early Years to Year 6.
Article 12: Every child has the right to have a say in all matters affecting them, and to have their views taken seriously.
The main points discussed were lunchtime play equipment, lunches and lunchtime clubs.
After half term, the children will arrange meetings with Mr Ricketts and Aspens Food Service to discuss the ‘wants’ expressed by the children of St Clement’s Academy.
