Learners class really are awesome! We have had another wonderful week of amazing learning!
We have produced some fabulous newspaper reports this week in English, centred around our very own Parker, who has inspired us all with his caring, eco-warrior determination with his idea to collect for the homeless in our community – a truly deserving newspaper report focus!
On Monday, we had a visit from our very own well-being nurse Mel, to raise awareness of Children’s mental Health Week. This years these is ‘Let’s Connect’. We shared the book ‘The Invisible String’ by Patrice Karst and then we created paper chains to represent all the people, places and pets each is child is connected to. Well-being is so important and we really enjoyed Mel’s activities.
In DT this week, we were able to build bridge structures using only paper and sellotape. Our challenge was to make the bridge strong enough to hold some heavy building bricks. We soon found that we needed to roll, fold or layer the paper to make it stronger and stiffer. We delighted in testing the strength of our bridges at the end of the session.
We are three weeks in to our swimming sessions at the local pool and it is clear that our water confidence and skills are improving!
We have shared lots of stories this week. We love to discuss our favourite characters and chat about the stories we enjoy.
It is clear to see that Learners Class love to learn!
