Monday 11th October 2021  World Mental Health Day 
As yesterday was World Mental Health Day, we spent some time during assembly and in our PSHE lesson thinking about our own mental wellbeing. We talked about different emotions and ways that we can manage our emotions. Badger class decided that they would like to make a calm corner in our classroom and we shared some ideas of things that help us to feel calm. We suggested some calming activities that we have put in our calm corner. We shared different breathing techniques that help us when we feel overwhelmed. Look at some of our ideas in the photos below. We also know that if we feel that our worries get "too big" we know who we can talk to about this and what we can do to get help.

Over the last two weeks we have been looking at the features of the Sparky text and practising using adjectives, antonyms, adverbial phrases and noun phrases. This week it is time to put what we have learned into action when we write our own Sparky stories. Look out for some examples of our work below...
We have started using Times Table Rockstars to practise our tables - more information and usernames will be sent home soon.
We have also been enjoying exploring moving paper clips using magnetic force though different materials in Science - see video clips.
We enjoyed our library time with Tree Kangaroo Class. It was great to be able to share stories with the older children. Remember to bring a bag to school so that you can take a book from the classroom home to read.

Our second full week at school got off to a great start today with lots of hard work in maths and English. Our English text at the moment is called Sparky and is about a girl who gets a pet sloth. Last week we created adverts to persuade people to buy a pet sloth. Our Reading text is called 'Fortunately the milk' and is full of some very bizarre goings on! We are collecting lots of new vocabulary and making some careful observations and predictions as we read. In maths we are learning about hundreds, tens and ones and are very good at partitioning numbers.
See below some photos from our science lesson today when we explored magnetic materials.
