We have had a very exciting week this week – we really enjoyed listening to the story of Jessie the Jellyfish, told by its author Laurie Newman. We were so inspired by the message about looking after the environment, in particular putting our rubbish in the bin and not on the floor or in the sea, that we discussed others ways to help save the planet and designed posters to help remind others to do the same.
We were also very lucky to have a ‘Jessie the Jellyfish’ art workshop in which we made our own jellyfish using unrecyclable plastics – we were shocked at how much rubbish can’t go in the recycling bin and enjoyed preventing it from going to landfill by producing some amazing artwork! We worked really well together and showed lots of brilliant teamwork!
We have been busy completing our assessments and recapping our fabulous phonics – we couldn’t wait for it to stop raining so that we could go outside and practise our target sounds on the floor with chalk.
We have all worked really hard this half-term and as a result, earned all of the pieces to our class robot! We discussed what we wanted our robot reward to be and voted for a disco party. We had lots of fun dancing to the music, playing musical statues and pass the parcel. It was so lovely to be able to celebrate our hard work.
We love reading in Class One! Luckily, we have a new whole school reading challenge to reward us for our super reading. If your child reads on 20 nights, they will receive a bronze reading certificate, if they read for 30 nights they will receive a silver reading certificate, and if they read for 50 nights they will receive a gold reading certificate. We will continue to check the new reading records each Friday – so please ensure that these are in your book bags. Happy reading!
Have a wonderful half term holiday!
